Broker's Comments

Built in 1965 by CJ Darby of Oulton Broad as a part of "Blakes" hire fleet this 1965 cruiser is as good today as she would have been then. There is a "log" showing all the work she has had done over the years along with photographs at each stage. There is an extensive list of quality upgrades, maintenence and additions but the boat has been kept as near to original as possible. She has modern electrics, cabin heating, heads etc for increased comfort without losing the "ambience" of such a graceful lady. The decks and planking (above and below waterline) have all been replaced wherever and whenever required. The mooring is available if reqd and the owner will give 3 months free moorings to the new owner. The boat was out of the water at the end of 2008 when she had 2 planks replaced and the hull repainted.
