Remarks:

First designed by naval architect Linton Hope in 1900 at the request of the Royal Norfolk & Suffolk Yacht Club with the aim of building a yacht capable of sailing inshore and on the Norfolk Broads, Broads One Design # “Shearwater” was built in wood in 1925 at Burnham Yacht Building Company.

In 1991, being considered a true and exemplary example of the fleet, she was used to produce the fibreglass mould still used today for the production of GRP hulled Brown Boats.

She has since (in 1992) been fibreglass sheathed and she has GRP decks, ensuring minimal ongoing maintenance for a wooden craft of this age. A much loved vessel that has been in the same family and maintained since the 1970’s and is of historical interest for her class. She is being offered for sale complete with a recently serviced trailer.
