Remarks

An exceptional example! Built for the vicar of Somerleyton and named Ringed Plover after the similarity of the clerical collar, she has been maintained to a very high standard. With only two previous owners and age forcing a sale, she has been used very lightly in recent years. The owner has been enjoying other craft and she has become "one boat too many". The road trailer enables easy relocation for the new owner, plus an outboard bracket and backrests aid comfort and convenience when cruising (or simply when the wind is either lacking or in an unfavourable direction!) This is one not to miss!

CLASS NOTES: Linton Hope, naval architect to the King of Belgium, designed the Broads One Design at the request of members of the Royal Norfolk and Suffolk Yacht Club in 1900 with the aim of creating a yacht that was both capable of sailing inshore off Lowestoft and also suited to sailing on the Broads, and the first class race is recorded as having been held on Whit Monday 1901 at Oulton Broad. 31 boats were built in wood over a period of 38 years, with more being to added to the class since 1987 constructed in GRP. The class now numbers 80 in total and remains very active today, with the design having proven itself to be both very safe and capable at sea, and very competitive when raced against other Broads classes.
