Owners Comments. 

So far as we are aware Jessica, a clinker built launch was built circa 1950 by Powercraft of Salcombe where she has spent her entire life. We have owned her for the last 16 years having acquired her from a relative of the Stone family. She has been maintained regardless of expense including a new Beta 14 h.p. diesel engine and has been
painted , varnished and anti-fouled each year. Jessica is regretably being offered for sale as we do not use her enough having only put 37 hours on the engine over the last four years.Jessica has been an excellent boat for our family and we will be extremely sad not to be able to enjoy her on the odd occasion. Perhaps a new owner can have the enjoyment which our family have experienced over the years of using Jessica in the Salcombe Estuary. Jessica is ready for the summer season.
