Juno spent her early life in Portsmouth & Solent area, much of it on dry stack before moving to the Bristol Channel in 2017 where she was trailer launched in Bristol Harbour( fresh water) as required. She was put on a berth at Portishead Marina from August 2019. She is believed to have been owned from new by a senior naval officer and subsequently by a retired engineer/company director in Bristol with connections to commercial marine passenger operations.
When first specified she was equipped with good quality hard wearing equipment and this has served her owners well. She has been regularly serviced and looked after and this is reflected in her condition, appearance and performance. Her present owner is looking to upgrade to a larger cruiser but this means saying goodbye to a much loved and greatly enjoyed boat. She gives a lovely feeling of stability and safety while being economic to run and very quick when necessary. A nice looking and fun boat that can push you back in the seats.
