Hand-built locally here on the Norfolk Broads by the renowned local boat builder, Maynard Watson, this Gentleman's Slipper Launch, or Maynard Watson 27, exudes elegance and style! A superb river launch, she would grace any inland waterway with her near mirror-finish varnished decks and near maintenance-free GRP hull. Comfortably seating four to six, and with the Slipper Launch's trademark distinctive sloping stern, she boasts a nearly new inboard diesel engine, easily accessed under a hydraulic engine hatch, and comes complete with a twin axle road trailer, making relocation to a new home a breeze - whether that be Horning or Henley!

Some history and a note regarding the name: "Azzahr" was commissioned by her current and only owner, and was built using an original c1910 Edwardian wooden slipper launch hull as a plug, that had been left for dead in the grounds of a house the vendor bought back in 1995! Further details of this interesting and somewhat unusual history are available upon request. "Azzahr" is an ancient dice game played prior to the Middle Ages by Arabs and later popularised in France as "Hasard" and England as "Hazard".
