This listing is for a wooden Norfolk Broads river cruiser ‘Missy’.
I have owned her for two years and have recently discovered that some planks and other woodwork are rotten and need to be replace. I am unable to afford the cost of these repairs and so am advertising her for a quick sale.
Important - It should be clearly understood that the buyer will be responsible for removing the boat from the central Norfolk boat yard where she is currently stored, out of the water. The boat must be removed within two weeks of the sale and the buyer will be responsible for the costs of removing.
There are 5 holes in the hull planking, see photos, and various other areas of soft and decayed planking. This boat will suit someone looking for a project or restoration but is not suitable for use until repairs have been carried out.
The photos of the boat afloat were taken on May 2015 and she has been afloat until March 2017. Other photos were taken in May 2017.
