Matua, this is a converted lifeboat off the ship called Mv Matua,check the history of the ship(www.ssmaritime.com)
This boat is 1 off 4 Lifeboats.My grandfather who is 98 years old owned it then my father took it over approximatly 15 years ago and now my father has passed away, it was left to me.
Matua is a double ended design,powered by a two cylinder Lister diesel.She has had a recent extensive refit top to bottom,built from hull up to a professional standard and presents well. I could wright a book on how much has been done to the boat.Time and money were no object to get her launched after being on the hard for 30 years.Viewing and a meeting with me will explain so much more.Sad to see it go but I have 3 boats now and cant keep up. Over 100k has been spent up to now. (I am working on the front mast at the moment) Note designed to be a ketch)
