EQUIPMENT: Internal: The companionway leads down into the main cabin, where there is a single sleeping cabin immediately to port (with full-sized single berth, storage and radiator) and the chart table/navigation station and a hanging locker to starboard. Going aft, there is a good-sized double cabin with double berth to port, hanging locker, seat and other storage and a radiator. Going forward, the galley is to starboard opposite which is the heads. The galley provides a gimballed Flavel Wayfarer cooker (new 1998 - 2 burners, grill and oven), worktop, cupboards and sink unit with manually pumped cold water. The heads has a Portapotti toilet, hand basin with manually pumped water, cupboards and a radiator. Immediately forward of this, there is a Refleks gravity fed diesel powered heater. This requires no power to run and produces 1.6kw in addition to which it also heats radiators throughout the boat producing a further 3.4kw. The dining area extends into the forepeak and has a full-length settee berth to either side with a central drop-leaf table. In common with most Bruce Roberts vessels, headroom is good throughout. Interior woodwork is in teak and mahogany, and the upholstery is in blue/grey material. It is understood that headlinings and side panels can all be removed for access to the deck and hull (hull and deck is foam insulated down to the waterline). Access to the engine compartment is from the starboard passageway, port single cabin and under the companionway steps. Navigation equipment includes: Sestral major compass, Garmin 120XL GPS, echosounder, speed and distance log, VHF and navigation lights. Other equipment includes: 2 folding bicycles, a television, an Acorn fast charger, Ampair 100 wind generator, 2 by 128 a/h domestic batteries and 1 by 90 a/h engine starting battery and a radio/CD system. The vessel's engine has been virtually rebuilt and has a closed circuit, fresh-water, keel-cooling system with a dry exhaust. External: The boat has galvanised pulpit, pushpit and stanchions. Deck gear includes: Lewmar 43ST genoa winch, Lewmar 43 mainsheet winch, Lewmar 40 halyard winch (with Spinlock jammer), Daveys windlass with 60 m 3/8 inch chain and a new Fortress FX 37 delta anchor.

REMARKS: This boat was built by John Read & Son of Happisburgh, a small boatbuilders with an excellent reputation for their vessels. She is clearly greatly loved and her condition (albeit that she is just having her bottom repainted) can only be described as outstanding.

OUR OPINION: A very traditional styled, well-equipped boat that looks to be good value for money.

FEATURES: A beautifully finished and fitted out vessel. Very spacious, with many well thought-out ideas for storage, etc. New sails 1999.
