The Hampton Safari remains ever popular due to her spacious interior, sliding cabin roof and ideal size for Broads cruising.

This example retains her original spacious internal fitout in good condition with ample cupboards and storage in both the saloon and aft cabin. She also benefits from being wintered ashore and a freshly serviced engine (March 2024)

Externally she has the odd ding and scuff and would benefit from a small amount of TLC.

She has been with the current owners since 2018 and is for sale due to them retiring from motor cruising.
