This Broads River Cruiser provides four generous berths in three cabins, and is constructed to a design relevant to the late 1960's. She is of hard chine bilge timber construction with a shallow tapering keel, flat transom, and curved stem. An unusual marque constructed by a well recognised builder. She is a product of the era of the tall sided majestic looking wooden Broadland motor cruiser which were popular in the latter post war years.

Broker's Comments

For all those who love meandering down quiet rivers, or who yearn to cruise the Broads, this boat is custom made. She will accommodate four people in comfort, with the kitchen/galley, sitting room/saloon, and comfortable beds giving a "home from home" feel. Indeed, she could be lived on permanently, with plenty of headroom, and cosy heating throughout. There is plenty of sunbathing space up top, and the wheelhouse and aft covers remove for those warm summer days. She has a traditional feel about her, and there is extensive use of real wood throughout.
She represents a very nice package, and will give her lucky new owner years of pleasure.
The current riverside mooring may be transferable.
