REFURBISHMENT 

Tahilla is a well know Dunkirk Little Ships and one that does not come up for sale frequently, her previous owners to 2015 had her for 30+ years, and when she changed hands in late 2015 the new owner knew this would be the 'forever boat'.

 

Tahilla had been

well maintained and loved throughout her life and the new custodian  planned to continue this and to add his own touch to this  stunning historical boat
