I am now in receipt of a survey to ascertain how much needs to be spent to get a workboat classification. This is a generously-estimated £37k so in order to help a buyer achieve this I have reduced the price.
(See mvelkstone.weebly.com for more photos). Ex RNAS Fleet Tender ELKSTONE was built in 1970 in Cook’s Boatyard at Wivenhoe, Essex. She has had an extensive renovation over the last four years and is now ready for new owners. She is prepared as a ‘blank canvas’ which allows her either to return to work as a survey, research, cargo, dive or similar vessel or to be enjoyed purely as a pleasure craft. She retains three original holds, one large for general cargo, one medium with storage space, currently having 3x fuel IBCs installed and one smaller forward with storage space, harbour generator (Lister-Petter AD1), and access to the chain locker. Her engine is a four-cylinder Lister Blackstone Diesel ERS4. She measures 23.1m by 6.8m beam and draws 2.2m at the stern. Her accommodation is original comprising a lobby accessed by main door port side leading to heads with shower/bath lavatory port side and Captain’s Cabin with washbasin, large wardrobes and charcoal burner starboard. The main hold, engine room, wheelhouse and Galley/Saloon are also accessed from this lobby. The Galley is equipped with a stainless-steel 6-burner propane gas oven, double-bowl single-drainer stainless sink, fridge and adequate storage units. A Refleks diesel heater is centrally-placed to heat the adjoining Saloon which has seating on all sides and a swivel dining table. Recently slipped for antifoul, extra anodes and new stern-tube gland packing and Neox.
