The 31ft Mitchell - the Mk1 being built in Newhaven from the design of Alan. F. Hill MRINA - has developed to be one of the most sort-after displacement cruising/fishing craft of classical English design. Now at the stage of Mk III and built on the East Coast. Her hull design achieves not only good performance for the design but is much sort after for her sea-keeping qualities for both angling and family boating.
This Mk II craft has a relatively small number of hours on the engine and appears to be in good order. The fit-out looks to be professional with varnished hardwood and trim. Internal linings to the hull and deck-head.
