When Kate and I were searching , we decided that Ludham bridge was a must have , and to many this also applies to Wroxham bridge so set what aircraft you are happy with to allow passage under said bridges (very few will pass Potter ) .
our initial budget was £15000 we ended up spending nigh on £30000 but we did find exactly what we were seeking , so do allow for “wiggle room” on your top end.
we also wanted an aft cockpit ,diesel inboard engine , heating and original gel coat ; we ended up with an Ocean30 and couldn’t be happier , yes we had to compromise on some minor things and we have also spent a fair bit on top of our initial purchase but dreams don’t come cheap .
i also know others who have spent £12000 and they too have never regretted their investment .
a final note , Kate and I spent over 18months in our search and rejected dozens before we found our dream , not just searching on the Broads but also on other waterways also.
