Simply superb! This is an almost unique opportunity to own a nearly new yacht built by arguably one of the very best boat builders on the Norfolk Broads and maintained with no expense spared in 'as new' condition ever since. "White Swan" was reviewed in and appeared on the front cover of Water Craft magazine issue no. 86 published in March/April 2011.

Stunning both inside and out, White Swan provides luxurious accommodation for four in her gleaming cabins, with a vast cockpit, hydraulic lifting cabin roof providing great headroom, thermostat controlled cabin heating and hot water ensuring that stays aboard are an absolute pleasure regardless of the weather. In addition to this she boasts beautiful teak laid decks, hull topsides that are so fair that they are easily mistaken for GRP, gorgeous varnished strip planking to the hull insides and an amazing Avonite splash top in the heads compartment believed otherwise seen only on board Oyster yachts! She has been raced just once to date (during her first season afloat), but being relatively lightly built compared to many of her older River Cruiser Class sistren, she should very quickly attain a good racing record if sailed competitively. Both yacht and work of art, White Swan is without doubt one of the very best Broads yachts afloat today, and she has been built and maintained to an impeccable standard using modern methods but with tradition always the primary objective. A dream boat!

Unexpectedly for sale due to a planned relocation, this vessel will be launched and photographed in early/mid May.

MOORING: It's understood that the vessel's current very desirable northern Broads mooring could be transferred to the purchaser subject to agreement from the yard owner (annual cost approximately £1,600).
