Tour/Video

Are you looking for a historic vessel or a restoration project where much of the hard work has already been done? Built in 1942 by General Motors Holden for the ministry of defence for the war effort, Army Work Boat No. 422 (AWB422) is a substantially built boat looking for somebody to complete her. 422 has a newly installed, reconditioned GM671 engine and brand new hydraulic gear box. Unfortuntely her current owner has had to relocate for work and cannot continue the 3 years of fastidious restoration already invested. Each step of the restoration has been documented, which provides a great insight into the project to date. Plenty of work is still to be done, however this could be a great opportunity to apply your own touches to this historic vessel.
