Profile 33 – A Very Spacious Motor Cruiser
Pre Purchase Survey – A displacement hull with central box keel and twin bilge keels
This Profile 33 built in the late 70’s is a ‘relatively large’ 10m motor cruiser fitted with twin Mercedes 42hp diesel engines. With a spacious interior and the added benefit of an aft cabin with two single bed whilst the forward cabin is a classic V berth type.
This vessel was viewed at the developing St-Olaves Marina which has available moorings. The Profile 33 has been reasonably maintained by the previous owner. However a few details have been over-looked over the years mainly due to difficult access to those areas and consequently the vessel is now in need of some attention and improvement.
Necessary improvements include the steering support bracket which has pretty much disappeared over the years due to heavy corrosion and the port engine / propeller shaft which appears for some unknown reason to be misaligned and obviously needs correcting

However, once these areas have been corrected the vessel should give enjoyable cruising to her new owners.
I particularly enjoyed the main cabin which is comfortable and spacious and offers a good look-out from the helm station. Down below is a large well equipped galley offering all what is needed to keep a hungry crew happy on the water
