Rare Broads One Design ‘Brown Boat’ for sale

Broads One Design Heron for sale in Wales

Original 100-year old Broads One Design (or Brown Boat) Heron (number 13) is for sale after her owner suffered an accident that limits his mobility.

She is gaff rigged and is 23ft long with a 5ft beam, with a fixed keel and requires one metre depth of water. She was fully refurbished a few years ago, and has been very recently re-varnished and anti-fouled, and has recent sails made by made by Jeckells.

There’s a history of the class here, and I gather there’s a video showing Heron sailing somewhere on the Internet, although I haven’t found it.

The asking price of £8,500.00 includes a recently overhauled four wheeled road trailer. For information email me at gmatkin@gmail.com and I will forward the message.
