SECOND CHANCE to buy this wonderful piece of history.

Due to her new owner being required to relocate interstate, the Alby Prior is back up for sale.

This vessel has some wonderful history and as you can see it is well cared for, with the previous owner doing a $30K refit during the past few years and the current owner adding to this with further maintenace and upgrades. The work included in both these overhauls is a new cabin roof and partial sides, window frames, and the interior converted to mirror a classic pleasure craft, new winch and anchor chain (40m), new steering arm bracket, new shaft bearing, new bilge pumps and water pumps and hoses, and woodwork.

The hull has come in for some additional TLC with all the old antifoul soda blasted off and a new recoat applied. The exterior has also had a complete repaint. It has spotted gum planking on King Billy pine frames. Worn planking has been replaced.

In addition, the refit includes the rebuild of the 120hp 6 cylinder Ford engine, having done a little over 20 hours since rebuild. The gearbox was rebuilt at same time, and new batteries were installed.

This is a lovely vessel in very nice condition and excellent value for money - much loved by her new owner and a very reluctant sale.
