Broker's Comments

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

This 32ft Wooden cruiser is a stunning example of what cruising on the broads was all about in the late 50's up to the seventies. This is a supreme example having had over £16,000 spent on her during 2010- 2011 when all the work needed to restore this beautiful craft was carried out by Brooms of Brundall. The list is extensive but included are;
Planking, Webasto Heating, Sterling Battery management system, Immersion Heater, Wiring, Starter motor and alternator, Fridge, Oven and Hob, & 13amp sockets and bilge pumps.
She was then surveyed in September 2011 and
During the summer of 2010 she has had the following;
New electrics throughout, New topsides, Hull planking above and below waterline, New Chines and rubbing strakes, Windows, 240v shore power and the list goes on. She has brand new warm air diesel fired heating, a new immersion heater along with all the electrics, wood burning stove, new batteries etc.
This is a stunning river cruiser or ideal live aboard in almost "as new" condition which has to be seen to be appreciated.
