Broker's Comments

An rare opportunity to purchase one of the iconic "Broads One Design", lovingly described as a "Brown Boat".

The 'Broads One Design' was concieved in 1900 by members of the Royal Norfolk & Suffolk Yacht club who sought a class of yacht that was easily handled, of simple sail plan, devoid of exaggerated features and capable of racing at sea as well as in inland waterways. To this end naval architect Linton Hope was approached and the class was born.

Initially, five were commissioned from the Burnham Yacht Building Company and delivered in 1901 when the first official race was recorded.
Affectionately known as 'Brown Boats' due to the varnished topsides, the class is still very active today and, despite advances in technology, remains true to the original concept although later craft were constructed using GRP (as is the boat currently available).

This fine example was built in 1996 and is a real delight to view. She is being offered with the trailer pictured.

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