  1. Hello there, I aquired this lovely little launch early last year, the owner rang and asked if i could find a good home for her on the Broads as she didn't want her to go to the Thames.. I found the perfect person! She is a 1927 Brooke Empire launch Mk1, (the Mk2 had the engine vents in the combing) I think the original owner only had her a couple of years before selling her to Jack Powles of Wroxham who named her 'Baby Betty' after his daughter, they later sold it to a family friend who kept her for the next 50 years. the original Brooke empire engine was replaced in the 1930s with a 1936 ford engine, more recently a yanmar 1gm was installed which i immediately tore out! The plan was to replace a rotten engine bearer, and put a nice 4cylinder nanni diesel in her..
