Remarks:

This beautiful and unusual half decker has recently been the subject of a very comprehensive professional renovation at a cost of over £30,000, subsequently being relaunched under her original name in 2014 in “first class condition” having had virtually all of her underwater woodwork renewed. With absolutely no expense being spared, she was also treated to new sails and a new 24V electric outboard for her relaunch! She is now very sadly for sale due to her owner’s relocation. Valued at £25,000 for insurance purposes, a quick sale is desired and all sensible offers will be seriously considered. If you are looking for a very attractive traditional Norfolk Broads half decker that should require only the minimum of ongoing maintenance in coming years, look no further!

UPDATE 29th August 2017: “Oriole” has now been re-varnished in preparation for relaunching.

Please note: The larger photo of “Oriole” under sail (during the three rivers race) was taken pre-renovation.
