Remarks:

This is an almost unique opportunity to own what must, without doubt, be one of the most beautifully maintained River Cruiser Class yachts in existence! This boat was commissioned by the previous owner and has always been maintained by the original builder (who could not be more highly regarded amongst both his peers and clients alike) since new. Every year she has been wintered ashore, and every spring she has been recommissioned following the completion of whatever works the builder has recommended. She is consequently presented in excellent condition throughout. This much loved vessel has been set up for comfortable cruising, easily managed by two people and is now very sadly for sale due to a lack of time and change in commitments.
