The Japonica is a popular family Broads yacht due to her spacious and comfortable accommodation. This example was formerly part of the Alfred Turner, Colin Facey and NBYC hire fleets as Jasmine 1, and is understood to have had three previous private owners prior to being purchased by the current owner in 2013. She was restored by Martham Boats between 2009 and 2013, and she has since undergone regular maintenance. Unlike two of her sister yachts, she has not been registered with the River Cruiser Class to date, but we seen no reason why she could not be subject to going through the normal formalities (being scrutinised, etc.). An ideal family Broads sailing cruiser!

UPDATE WINTER 2017/18: This vessel is currently ashore in shed storage undergoing her annual winter maintenance, being painted, varnished, planking checked and replaced as necessary and engine serviced. It's understood that a new cover is also on order.
