Broker's Comments

Forward steer river cruiser in excellent condition throughout. Offering single level accommodation and accessibility through all Broads bridges (subject to river levels). This Aquafibre Opal 28 has been fastidiously maintained and is lifted out annually.
She has good sized cabins, including a large, comfortable double, aft , with wardrobe and dressing table. There is carpeting throughout.
The galley is well laid out and includes full size cooker, water filter, 12v electric fridge with freezer box, microwave and cupboards.
Boasting a large shower room with fresh flushing Mansfield head and wash basin.
The saloon is comfortable and offers views out with large windows and double doors leading out to the forward well, with seating. The split sliding sunroof is a welcome addition for cruising in warmer weather. Whilst the warm air Eberspacher 4kw heater allows for cruising all year round.
She has had a bow thruster and electric windlass fitted in April this year along with a full 4 year Boat Safety Certificate.
The boatyard/owners are renowned for their attention to detail and this boat is no exception.
She really is in superb order and is very much ready to enjoy with no work needed whatsoever.
