Remarks:

Highly sought after due to their very desirable, low maintenance GRP hull and traditional Broads yacht looks and character, the Landamore 28 is a great option for family Broads cruising.
Built in 1997 by Herbert Woods this Landamores design Elanco 28 was in hire for the first few years before being purchased by the previous owners and sailed locally from Wroxham. The current owners purchased her in 2018 and have since made significant improvements to the rig and accommodation. Iris is a beautifully laid out cruising yacht, well equipped for long holidays on the Norfolk Broads and for racing.
