Remarks:

Built by her first (and only other) owner under the guidance of two of the best boat builders in Norfolk, this is a very unusual opportunity to purchase a very young River Cruiser Class yacht! Described by her builder as his “greatest personal achievement”, she is so well balanced that even in the strongest winds, three fingers are enough to hold her right up to the point of broach. Offered in excellent condition throughout, and with the benefit of a recent, almost new, environmentally friendly inboard electric motor (installed at a cost of £8,000), this beautiful and unique Broads yacht is unexpectedly offered for sale due to a change of circumstances.
