Remarks:

This exquisite River Cruiser Class yacht is a unique survivor of the late Victorian era, and is thought to be the oldest known river cruiser still in existence. She is a really beautiful small yacht, and is well known throughout the Broads. She was the subject of a major (£25,000) restoration programme in 1993 by a leading Broads yard, the story of which was published in Classic Boat magazine. She has been maintained to a very high standard ever since, and appears to be presented in excellent condition throughout. This is a very special Broads river cruiser, now reduced to sell due to a change of cruising location.
