Description

"Grassholm" was built for Trinity House in 1970, under the supervision of their own surveyors, as a seagoing pilot vessel, capable of handling the heaviest of weather. The hull is very strongly constructed of 2” teak planking on oak frames at 12” centres, doubled from the water line to the keel. She has bilge keels fitted, and the main deck and bridge superstructure is constructed of aluminium.

Offering up to seven berths in 4 cabins, the interior is very comfortably fitted out in teak panelling, with a very full inventory. The engine a Gardner 8L3B eight cylinder diesel has very low running hours since a major re-build and gives her an effective range of 1,500 miles

Grassholm is now a very seaworthy, long-range motor yacht. She retains her original water tight doors, hatches and bulkheads.
