Remarks:

This traditional Broads yacht simply oozes with character and period features! Offering spacious accommodation for two in her light and well appointed cabin, she also has a further two berths in her superb forepeak (children’s cave!) which has to be one of the best on the Broads! Purchased by the current owner in 2013, she’s clearly a much loved and well looked after vessel. Professionally maintained each winter with little regard to cost, she’s also benefited from numerous upgrades and improvements over the years, including a new inboard diesel engine in 2006, new overall cover in 2020 and recently installed cabin heating enabling her to be better enjoyed early and late in the season. A lovely Broads yacht for a couple or family, and a great example of the era!

This Broads yacht is seriously for sale and offers are invited.

PART EXCHANGE: A part exchange for a motor sailer or yacht with cabin heating would be considered.

PLEASE NOTE: Photos 2-20 are from c.2018/19 and show the vessel’s old cover. Photos 1 and 21-24 are more recent and show the new (2020) cover.
