Rhea 750 - Probably the sweetest of looks ever found in the 'Peche Promende' style of boat ? Rare and much admired by those with an eye for something a bit special, the Rhea 750 blends rugged traditional looks with a fast, seaworthy, semi-planning hull.
Currently in use and much loved she will be polished and cleared for the new owner upon transaction.
Built to fish the wild tidal races of her native Brittany - her deep, safe walk-around deck and cosy secure wheelhouse will easily adapt to many roles.
Very lightly used as a family day boat, with only around 704 hours on her bulletproof and powerful 240hp Yanmar engine, as of 14/08/2019.
'Cath Na Mara' offers the rare chance to acquire a well spec'ed and maintained example of this premium marque in UK waters.
