COLOUR: White with varnished superstructure

INTERIOR: 5/6 berths plus heads and galley.

ENGINE: Thorneycroft DB2 Handybilly diesel (believed about 8 hp). It is understood this was rebuilt in 2000: when inspected, the unit ran very well.

RIG TYPE: Gaff Sloop

MAST/SPARS: Timber (new 1997)

SAILS: Slab reefed main, plus Wykeham-Martin roller-reefed jib (both by Jeckells) and a spare jib

EQUIPMENT: Internal: The vessel has a good size cockpit, with seating to either side and lockers - including a sealed gas locker - all round. The engine is contained in a wooden engine box mounted centrally. Going into the vessel, the galley is immediately to starboard opposite which is the navigation station which also has a single berth. The galley provides a cooker (2 burners, grill and oven), stainless steel sink unit (with pressurised hot - from a gas water heater - and cold), worktop, cupboards, etc. The navigation station provides a chart table and storage plus compass, depth sounder and HF radio. Going forward the heads is to port and provides a sea-toilet (with diverter valve and small holding tank) and shower. Opposite this is a companionway giving a second access point to the boat. Forward again, the main cabin has a settee to either side, a drop-leaf table and a solid fuel stove. There are also various lockers and cupboards. The vessel has both electric and oil lighting and in addition there is a window through the hull on either side, plus an opening glazed skylight in the deckhead. Forward again, the forepeak provides two further full-length berths (convert to a double if required) plus additional storage. Headroom in the boat is about 5' 6" for the most part. Upholstery is in grey/beige material, believed dralon, and the interior décor is mainly of varnished hardwood, probably mahogany. External: The vessel has painted canvas-covered decks, varnished superstructure, grab-rails, etc.

REMARKS: This vessel, which was built by W S Parker of Oulton Broad, is unusual in having been registered at Lloyds. Although able to cruise the Broads, she is clearly a sea-boat and we understand she has cruised the East Coast with her current owners. We understand a quantity of engine spares, tools, etc. are included in the sale. A survey report, dating from 1997 is held on file.

OUR OPINION: A very traditionally styled vessel and one that is very snug inside. On the day when we inspected her, there was high wind and intermittent sleet and snow, but she was very comfortable inside. Well worth seeing, particularly if you want a vessel for inland and coastal cruising.
