Broker's Comments

Boatshed Norfolk are very pleased to be able to offer this absolutely beautiful example of the ever popular Bounty 28. ***2024 season broads river toll paid***

This 1980 vessel has clearly been loved for many years by her owners and really is a stand-out example of the type which has had lots of improvements and money spent at local boat yards maintaining and upgrading her to keep her in the stunning condition she currently is.

There is a recent survey from 2022 (available) and the surveyor states " the condition of the boat is very good for its age" and " that she has to be one of the better examples of this boat about and that she was pleasure to survey".

These compact Bounty boats have a huge following with the full sliding roof and low profile they go everywhere on the Broads with ease.

This particular boat has a list of improvements and maintenance as long as the proverbial arm and some but not all is listed at the end of this description.

She was professionally two pack pained and it shows the second you see her - she gleams and even I thought she was a gelcoat boat the finish is just that good. This boat has diesel warm air heating, inverter system, full shore power system, immersion heater, solar panels, anchor winch, the list just keeps on going and she is pretty much spotless!

She starts and runs wonderfully and is quiet and smoke free in operation and this is testament to just how she has been loved and looked after. With the roof fully back she is just delightful. This boat has wanted for nothing and will impress all who see her.

Her Broads toll is paid for the coming season and her Boats Safety Certificate expires July 2027.

List of recent works include:
Jabsco electric toilet
Full Engine overhaul by Boulter Marine
Full Two pack repaint inside and out by Boulter Marine
All wood Varnished by Boulter Marine
New anti slip deck coverings 2020 by Ludham Bridge
