Understood to be in exceptional condition (one owner from new, never ‘bumped’ and never raced), this beautiful Bure Classic has been maintained to the highest standards since new by the original builder (who’s reputation is second to none!). Boasting the graceful and attractive aesthetics of the traditional Norfolk Broads yachts that have gone before her, the modern materials and low maintenance of a GRP hull and decks, and excellent sailing characteristics with fast and lively performance, the Bure Classic is quite possibly the perfect two berth Broads sailing cruiser!

Bure Classics don’t come on the market very often, and they rarely remain for sale for very long as a consequence. Please contact Topsail today to register your interest.
