- The boat has a good sized cockpit with seating to either side, with lockers under and in the stern. In addition, the vessel's Lytham Viking 2 burner/grill cooker is also located here in a locker to starboard. Double doors and a removable sliding hatch lead into the cabin, where there are full-length single berths to either side. In addition there is a quarter berth to port under the foredeck. Opposite this, to starboard, there is space for a Portapotti. Headroom, with the cabin-top raised, is about 6ft aft, dropping to 4ft 6in / 5ft forward. There is a very comfortable feel to the interior, in part as a result of the warm tones of her mahogany and pine varnished woodwork. Upholstery is in a brown and oatmeal open-weave material. The boat has been carefully looked after and is in really splendid condition. Her decks and cabin top are covered in lino (traditional on the Broads), and her brightwork gleams.
- Recent new all-over cover (made out of breathable material)
- Cockpit tent
- Clock and barometer
- Mud weight
- Quant pole
Understood to sail well, although said not to be a racer, this pretty boat is an excellent example of these craft. Sister ship to Honey, another Edwardian sailing cruiser and built at Ernest Woods' Cantley yard. We understand most of her running rigging has been renewed recently.
