Remarks:

Built by Ernest Woods in 1928, this River Cruiser Class Broads yacht has been extensively restored and upgraded under the current ownership since 2006, including recent new hydrodynamic rudder and keel designed by Andrew Wolstenholme, recent new rig and sails by Jeckells, and electric controller, charger, battery management system and motor by Lynch Motor Company in 2011. Further more recent improvements include a brand new overall winter, refurbished summer boom and cockpit cover, new roof canvases, new batteries and new BSS certificate. This Broads yacht is fully equipped with a generous inventory included all equipment needed to go cruising this summer, and also comes with an extensive and interesting history file, having been owned within the same family from commissioning in 1928 until 2006! True to her name, this one is a real beauty, both inside and out! And she’s very distinctive too, with her twin lifting roofs and varnished hull. Gorgeous!

For sale due to the vendor’s relocation, this yacht is seriously for sale and offers will be considered.
