Broker's Comments

This once beautiful 5 berth Broads Cruiser was bought with a view to restoring her to her former glory. Unfortunately the current owners no longer have the time or money to invest in her any further. Having said that she has had a new exhaust system fitted in Feb '07.
As a result we have a boat that has a sound hull that was re painted and anti fouled 12 months ago and is very dry inside. Work has been done on the topsides and externally she looks lovely.
However the interior does not tell such a nice tale, she needs completely re-fitting (as the pics show!) i.e. shower, galley, toilet, water tank etc etc. If you treat the interior as a blank canvass then she has the potential to be a very attractive and rewarding restoration. The original wood work is in very good condition and is completely original. She has no BSC or recent survey that we are aware of, but she is has a sound hull and had a new wheelhouse fitted in 2005. The mooring at Potter Hiegham is available should the new owner require it.
