Seller's Comment

MUST BE SOLD - ALL OFFERS CONSIDERED 23.28m Reef Charter Vessel - MV Booby Bird has been conducting extended Fishing / Diving Charters and Government contracts throught out the Great Barrier Reef and Coral Sea for many years. She was originally built in Adelaide to be used as a Southern Ocean Trawler. The vessel is for sale as boat only or as a going concern with GBRMPA Permit and client data base to start charters once the current virus situation is in hand. Booby Bird has accommodation for 22 guests and 2 crew. The vessel is air conditioned and carpeted throughout accommodation areas and tastefully furnished. There are 3 cabins with double berths to the port side of the galley and 6 x 2 berth cabins aft under deck.
She would make a great LIVE TROUT vessel as the 20m limit rule has been extended and she has a massive live tank in the aft section of the vessel. Would not take much to reinstate this for live product.
