Owner's Comments

I bought Kurpfalz as she was a gorgeous shape and because of her historical use.

“Kurpfalz” roughly translates as "Leader of The Pfalz” and was originally commissioned by the German Government as a “Zollboot” or Customs Patrol Boat and believed to be in service from 1958 – 1990. 

Although the accommodation has been adapted, many of the original features still remain. A fine example of German design and craftsmanship; she presents a unique opportunity for restoration, liveaboard or leisure. 

We have cruised the East coast, the Trent and the Humber, usually with six on board including four children, one only one year old!

Wherever we go she is a great talking point and we love her, but we now need a bigger boat!

“Kurpfalz” is a well constructed and maintained vessel which is ready to go.

However, she would benefit from some interior refurbishment - hence asking price.
