Broker's Comments

A classic wooden design built in 1970 by her current owner and a renowned local boat builder.
She was built in 1970 as a "retro" Broads style cruiser of earlier times.
Fitted with a Perkins 4108 diesel engine and offering hot water, shower full size cooker and heating in the very spacious saloon.
She is only in the water from April to October and every year is dry stored out of this period.
Still a popular hire craft she retires in October and will then be available for her new owners to take delivery.
A very well cared for "modern" classic in exceptional order.
