Broker's Comments

Stepping onboard this fine little Broads sailor I found myself entering an era of boating on the Broads that is fading into history. The first thing that came to my attention was the amount of care that has gone into the upkeep of this vessel. The varnish on the woodwork has been re applied every winter and is very well finished. Built in the 1930's, she has been lovingly cared for by her previous and present owners which can be seen in every detail onboard. Originally built for the hire operations here on the Norfolk Broads, this is an opportunity to buy a piece of sailing history that will be around for years to come.
