Broker's Comments

Preliminary Details: awaiting confirmation by owner. This 1940's built Traditional Broads Cruiser was originally part of a Broads hire fleet untill the current owner purchased her in the early 1960's. For the last 40 years she has been enjoyed on the Broads. Unfortunately the owners ill health has meant that he has not been able to maintain the craft. Once the cosmetic work has been completed she would be worth £12-£15,000.
