Remarks:

This is a beautifully presented River Cruiser Class Broads yacht. She has had only four owners since leaving a hire fleet in the mid 60s, one of whom owned her for 34 years (yes, 34 years!) and another who was a member of the Guinness family. The story of her 2008 restoration was featured in The River Cruiser magazine and can be read on-line at http://www.coxsboatyard.co.uk/norfolk-wooden-boat-repair.htm.

It’s understood that this yacht’s current mooring, in an idyllic position on the northern Broads, will be available to the purchaser at a cost of approximately £800 per annum subject to negotiation.
