Broker's Comments

What a gem!! a part of Broads history here presented in a quality condition.. The list is so long of all the work that's been carried out a viewing is a must to appreciate this lovely craft from a renowned boat builder.
No expense spared by the current owners who have had it since 1999 full credit to them. Its previous life was a hire craft with the Powle's fleet for 10 years & then sold to the Richardson's group & named Superb Gem.
Its is currently afloat and kept in a covered Wet Shed.
