Remarks:

This beautiful, traditionally styled, classic centre cockpit motor cruiser has clearly been maintained to a high standard throughout her life. Privately commissioned in 1950, she was registered (Lloyds Register) in Leith, Edinburgh, Scotland until 1977 when she moved to Ely, Cambridgeshire. She subsequently returned to her county of origin in 2004 when she was purchased by the current owners. Having never been in hire, she retains many original fixtures and fittings, and simply oozes with character! Offering five berths in two cabins, and with a fully equipped galley and two heads compartments, one with shower, she offers well appointed accommodation with ample space for family and guests. Sadly offered for sale due to a new business and lack of time. Without doubt, a real head turner! Beautiful!

MOORING: It’s understood that the vessel’s current Northern Broads wet shed mooring could be transferred to the purchaser (currently paid 1st Nov-31st Oct, £1,982).
