Broker's comments
Thunder appears to be an extremely stout vessel suitable for ocean passage making. However her present owner has not been able to use the vessel in recent years and so the condition of much of the equipment is unknown and will need to be verified by the purchaser or their surveyor.

The vessel is reported to be built of fiberglass with steel reinforcing rods throughout the hull. This construction method is not common and should be inspected and reviewed prior to purchase. However, the vessel was built in 1982 and any significant problems arising from this construction method would most likely be evident now and this does not appear to be the case.

Dimensions shown in this listing are from measurements made by broker and should be verified by the purchaser. Tank capacities are not known.

Disclaimer
The Company offers the details of this vessel in good faith but cannot guarantee or warrant the accuracy of this information nor warrant the condition of the vessel. A buyer should instruct his agents, or his surveyors, to investigate such details as the buyer desires validated. This vessel is offered subject to prior sale, price change, or withdrawal without notice.
