Birchwood 25 Executive ‘Carasue’ SOLD

Description
Built in 1979, we understand this Birchwood 25 was one of the original vessels used to showcase the new line of craft. ‘Carasue’ is fitted with its original economical Ford Watermota, Sea Tiger petrol engine and benefits from several other recent refurbishments. All in all, she has been well looked after and a good opportunity to acquire a classic river cruiser. We are open for viewings 7 days a week, please call to make an appointment.
