Remarks:

The Snipa is a traditional Swedish double-ender whose design is based on the Viking longboat. This lovely example was brought from Sweden to the Norfolk Broads by her current owner five years ago, but she would be equally at home on any inland water or estuary. She was not subject to VAT when imported into the UK and hence her VAT status is ‘VAT deemed paid’. Currently lying ashore.
