Remarks:

Offering oodles of character in her charming cottage-style interior, and a surprising amount of space for a 2/3 berth traditional Broads yacht (and with potential for adding further small berths forwards if required), this river cruiser is ideal for a couple or small family to get afloat on the Norfolk Broads and to enjoy being part of the local River Cruiser Class/regatta scene! Last afloat in 2021, she requires some further maintenance prior to relaunching, but benefits from having been re-varnished winter 2021/22, together with having a brand new jib (as yet unused) and a diesel inboard engine (serviced 2022) to get you home safely and quickly when the weather turns!

This yacht is seriously for sale and priced to sell. Any reasonable offer will be considered!
