Burnham-on-Crouch Essex UK|
'Tonka' is a well-presented, interesting take on a trawler-style liveaboard. Bespoke built by a Dutch yard in 1997 and fitted out by her first owner to a good standard. The current owner has spent a great deal of time and effort getting her to where he wanted her to be. She was blasted and epoxied below the waterline in 2019 and at the same time a Lofrans anchor windlass was fitted. Presented in good condition and ready to be enjoyed by her next owners.
