Lillian May is an extremely attractive option for someone considering cruising any of the European waterways.
She has two trusty modern, well-maintained Beta Marine diesel engines. I was impressed by the practical layout, which can be appreciated from the website photos and comprises a central wheelhouse with sleeping heads and storage forward, and astern you have the comfortable saloon (doubling as more sleeping should it be required) as well as a decent galley. A most attractive feature on this pint-sized motor yacht is the aft cockpit and davits for a ship-to-shore dinghy.
Lillian May was built of pitch pine on oak with mahogany both inside and on the wheelhouse.
The current owner has used the boat as a second home for several years at Bates Wharf in Chertsey, where the mooring could be available for a new owner if required.
During the autumn of 2021, the boat has undergone expensive hull work at Dennetts, where she was also taken for a full refurbishment when saved from dereliction by the owner in the early 1990s.
A recent survey is available.
