- 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 with chart table, and 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. Going forwards, 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. Forwards 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. Forwards again, the forepeak provides two further full-length berths (convert to a double if required) plus additional storage. Headroom in the boat is about 5ft 6in for the most part. Upholstery is in grey/beige material, believed dralon, and the interior decor is mainly of varnished hardwood, probably mahogany. The vessel has painted, canvas-covered decks and a varnished superstructure, grab-rails, etc.
- Depth sounder

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 that 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. This is a very traditionally styled vessel, and one that is very snug inside. Well worth seeing, particularly if you want a vessel for both inland and coastal cruising.
