Remarks:

This River Cruiser Class yacht was the subject of a very long and sympathetic restoration from 1991 to 1999 and she retains all of the character and charm expected in a traditional Broads yacht, together with beautiful curves and teak decks which make her truly stand out from the crowd. One of a class of two (sister yacht to “Radio”), she was originally part of a Broads hire fleet, but very unusually for a Broads yacht, she was also at one time available for hire further afield on the River Avon as part of the “Bathursts of Tewkesbury” fleet (Bathursts having been purchased by Leo Robinson in about 1926). Offering a comfortable cabin with space to accommodate a family of four, and the convenience of a reliable diesel inboard engine, she is understood to require the normal pre-season maintenance prior to relaunching, together with a few new planks in the near future. Purchased by the current owner in 2017, this lovely River Cruiser Class Broads yacht is very attractively priced for a quick sale!

Please note: The photos show the vessel in summer 2018. New photos will be added when possible.

Mooring: A northern Broads mooring may be available to the purchaser, although a further enquiry would need to be made at the time required.

QUICK SALE DESIRED!
