Built by Martham Boats in 1954, this very attractive half decker was exhibited at Olympia at the British Industries Fair. Her design is unusual for a Broads half decker with the inclusion of a large cuddy which provides shelter for those who wish to camp on board overnight, and her shallow draft and lifting keel make her ideal for sailing on Hickling Broad. She was rescued from long term barn storage by a previous owner, and she has since been regularly maintained and improved by her more recent owners.
A quick sale is desired and offers will be considered.
