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!

 

A lovely broads yacht in good condition, although it is acknowledged that she would now benefit from a reasonable amount of varnishing work to her exterior to bring her back to top condition and her price has now been reduced to reflect this.

 

She has been a much loved vessel and in previous ownership she was professionally maintained each winter with little regard to cost and 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.

She has benefitted from a recent survey by her current owners, who expecting to own her longer, have have remedied all Category B work from the 2022 survey along with a full repaint of the hull (blue below the waterline) and topsides (now white). Now reluctantly for sale again after only a short period of ownership after a recent addition to the family and the need for something more suitable for very small children.
