Broker's Comments

These boat details are subject to contract.
Note: Offers on the asking price may be considered.

Here we have a delighfull 1920's Norfolk Broads sailing yacht. Built in 1926 for the hire market she is a 20ft "Waif" class and was offerewd at ten shillings for a weeks hire!
The present owner has had much new planking under the waterline and she has been sailed each season. She has a current boat safety certificate and is currently stored ashore but ready for use.
She does need some interior varnishing and general love and attention bearing in mind she is some 86 years of age. A trully classic traditional broads yacht at a budget price, come view and enjoy some local history.
Note she comes with a frugal Honda 5hp 4 stroke outboard which was not present for the photos.
