Remarks:

This unique classic twin screw gentleman’s cruiser was originally kept on Lake Windermere in a wet shed, but saw very little use in her latter years there and was consequently found in almost time-warp condition, still retaining most of her original period fittings and amazingly still boasting the original gelcoat finish to her hull, when purchased by the current and second owner in late 2009. She spent the following year ashore being readied for recommissioning before being launched on the Norfolk Broads in November 2010. She comes with a comprehensive history file including numerous original builder’s receipts for the hull, engines and almost every nut, bolt and screw used during construction!. An ideal liveaboard vessel or pied-à-terre afloat on the Norfolk Broads, Thames or similar inland waterway.

MOORING: It’s understood that the vessel’s southern Broads mooring may be available to the purchaser subject to agreement from the mooring owner (annual cost approximately £1,100, currently paid quarterly).
