Boat Description

Purchased by the current owner in 1989, this River Cruiser (which was described as “A particularly pretty little boat” in an article published in 1987 in ‘Classic Boat’ magazine about Broads yachts) is nearing the completion of a fastidious professional renovation with almost everything having been replaced – she will be relaunched as all but a new boat! She is believed to be the only Sabrina class yacht that retains her original shape, thanks to the painstaking efforts of her restorers, and she will without doubt look stunning when back afloat.
