"Rhouma" is a Carvel manufactured Larch on Oak motor boat. She was built in 1971 by MacCaughy of Wick and up until recently was pre-owned as a small ferry, sight seeing craft in Lochaber. She was fully coded up until 2014 and could be coded again quite easily for a similar purpose or as a angling charter craft. The wheelhouse, with its raised helm position allows great visibility and is large enough to store all the life jackets, thermal protection suits, deck awnings and machinery required to offer locker passage to fare paying customers. There is even a sea toilet.The cockpit is deep, locker and has ample accommodation for passengers. These could easily be removed should a different application be found. The engine is a Perkins diesel and has completed 1200 serviced hours. Structurally and mechanically sound she is in good shape and ready to be put to immediate use.She comes with Navigation illumination, wipers and compass. She was antifouled and anodes changed in the Spring of 2019. She is ready to go.


Wooden motor yacht manufactured by MacCaughy of Wick in 1971. Carvel manufactured body using larch on oak beams. Stone ballast.Large flared front with raised foredeck finished in painted, grey, non slip coatings. Timber wheelhouse smartly painted in navy and white with great visibility through toughened glass windscreen.Opening windows seaport and starboard with removable canvas covers.Lockable wheelhouse door accessed from cockpit. Wheelhouse with central mounted helm chair on raised plinth.Storage area forward and below helm position.Access to chain locker in case of snags.Large cockpit with removable duck boards. Currently set up for day trip/passenger ferry with central stern to stern accommodation with removable padded chair covers.Galvanised steel frame over cockpit with canvas tarpaulin for inclement weather.Large aft deck at transom housing 2x250 Litre capacity gasoline tanks.Last antifoul completed with anodes changed Spring 2019.


There is no accommodation on this boat. However due to the dimensions of the wheelhouse this could easily incorporate a cot and a small galley if required. Her main purpose has been day trip and passenger transfer so any compartment has been given over to the stowage of personal life jackets and lockerty machinery required for coding. There is a marina toilet forward of helm.
