Remarks:

This iconic Broads River Cruiser is the perfect all-rounder. A Three Rivers Race winner with an excellent racing record, she is equally comfortable and spacious for cruising as a family.

Built in 1905 by Alfred Collins, she has two cabins with four berths, a separate toilet compartment and large cockpit.

New cabin sides and front, tabernacle and stern combing at Southgates Boatyard in 2018 and has had an additional 47 ft of planking and a new frame in the last 3 years, also at Southgates.

With only 2 owners in the last 37 years she has been well loved. Now sadly for sale due to a relocation out of the area. This is a true Broads classic!

MASSIVE SAVING AND BARGAIN PRICE: This vessel has been reduced from ��15,000 to her current price to encourage a quick sale due to relocation. This is a fantastic price and she won’t be around for long.

PLEASE NOTE: The majority of the photos show the vessel between 2020 & 2023, but we understand that she is currently presented to much to the same standard.
