Avona – SOLD

Hull material
Steel, Wood

Built in Denmark 1957. “Avona” Carvel built & believed to be Larch on Oak frames. Originally a Fishing vessel, then a Dive boat but now converted & offering a superb weekend family retreat! She will sit comfortably within any harbour. Her history reveals a vessel that stills retains character both above & below deck. Her quayside mooring to starboard is very central to Bristol City Centre with access to the M5/M5 corridor, Millennium square, Broadmead shopping centre, Cabot circus, Rail & Bus links.

Length:  59’2″ Length overall is 64’1″

Beam: 17’9″

Draft: 7’9″

Some major works have been undertaken to create a large saloon above deck. Carried out professionally by David Able Marine who fabricated the steel structure connecting to the wheelhouse. This allows for concealed access (central to the saloon) leading to the very spacious hold which offers several bedrooms, wc & shower room. Below decks “Avona” offers lots of scope but in our opinion requires some serious attention to this area in order to incorporate it into the living quarters.

At deck level & forward of the comfortable wheelhouse, which still retains all of her original navigational aids etc. An open plan galley to the spacious saloon fitted with aluminium windows to the added superstructure.

Galley has a built in Bosch cabinet fridge, Leisure gas oven & microwave. 2 x under counter storage units, 1 x over head cupboard & wall rack, twin burner hot plate Saloon has concealed lighting & overhead recessed downlighters.

Master cabin is aft of the wheelhouse & allows for 1 x double/single & lee cloth with en-suite wash hand basin & access to the aft deck / engine room.

Mains electric is on board, 12v & 24v system & gas cooking. Further details & photographs will follow.

Please note that the inventory for this vessel is very comprehensive & where relevant with lots of equipment relevant to the day to day management of the vessel. Ski tender is included. We are currently awaiting details of when this vessel will be slipped within the floating harbour for maintenance work to be carried. This will obviously lend itself as an ideal opportunity for any would be buyers to have a survey inspection carried out.
