MASB 32 is up and running with new Ford 2725E 136hp diesels.She lives in Gibraltar and is cared for by Hector Sheppard-Capurro who also has HDML1301 and RTTL2753(Vosper).She was saved from the breakers recently after having served as yacht "Fervent", a smuggler, shark fishing boat "Crismar" in Puerto Banus (Marbella)and a fish & chips shop "The Codfather" in Estepona.Her current name is "32".

Hello Christian

Surely you must do something about that name! "32"? or is the number of the ex Fish and Chip shop's berth?

Hello again Christian

To be serious for one moment, I would suggest that an original name of "32" could be resurrected-that of "Fervent". HMS Fervent was the name given to the Coastal Forces base at Ramsgate UK during WW2. You may know that several MASB's, by then recassified as MGB's, were operated from there- I'm not sure whether "32" was one of them.

Have noticed MASB32 is incorrectly posted as being up for sale in view a boat section;price of 15,000.00 would have been formulated prior to purchase of engines and anyway she is not currently for sale.There are however some pics which is nice,and some errors;these boats had 3 x Napier Sea-Lions,not 2,and max speed given is pessimistic(probably 'cos some slacker forgot to install one engine).I did post some(3)pics of her underway in this section (masb32-Jun 05)but there appears to be a problem with the upload function presently.

Re.name,If she gets a name as opposed to her pennant no. I am assured it will indeed be Fervent,which is as quite rightly pointed out the name of the base from which she operated.

Hello Christian

This shot certainly does show the stunning lines of the Hull - although the Awning does tend to focus (to my eyes at least) on the cabin structure - it is still a beautiful craft. Try to get your father to go the whole Hog - as per ex HMS Gay Archer
