Yare Bure White Boat For Sale

The Yare & Bure One Design or “White Boat”, is an extremely versatile day sailer which appeals to both novices and experienced sailors alike.  Designed specifically for Broads sailing, the fact that the class remains as popular now as when originally designed over 100 years ago is testament to the fact that the “White Boat” is a true Broads classic!
