This well known River Cruiser Class Broads yacht has a good racing record, but also provides comfortable accommodation for family cruising. She is one of the last of the large gaff rigged racers to be built prior to the change in rating rules which resulted in what is now considered to be the 'standard' Broads yacht design, and she is one of the only remaining yachts of this genre to still to be carrying an almost original sail plan. She was the subject of a thorough, but sympathetic, restoration and refit in 2000, and she has since been maintained to a very high standard and with no expense spared. Sadly for sale due to the younger members of the family having flown the nest, this is a chance to purchase, in the words of the owners, an "opportunity to enjoy some of the most exciting sailing available on the Broads" and an almost unique piece of Broadland, and indeed British, yachting history.
