Storebro 34 Royal, Ever Owned One?

Recommended Posts

Morning all,

Found one of these for sale which I like the lines of and compared to others for sale seems a good price even though it does need finishing. Have I got it right that it a grp> wood <grp sandwich hull and has anyone any experiance or comments of them one way or the other?

As always, thanks in advance.

If it is, I'd make sure you get the best boat surveyor going. Sorry and all that but I'd be very cautious.

Thanks, used the search box after posting and comments found weren`t encouraging tbh so think I`ll give it a miss.

Any idea what the air draft is on that?

Can`t find that info, pretty high I`d say.

All I have ever read about Storboro boats has been very positive and they do hold value well and quite a high one as well. Chunky Scandanavian built boats with high quality interior woodwork. A lot seemed more suited to coastal use and the Thames though being twin engined.

Only seen a few pictures online however the interior woodmanship looks top notch, agree about coastal use which is not my agenda so despite it being a third of the asking price compared to others currently advertised I guess it is best if I pass.

Particularly if you want to get under some of the bridges!

I owned one for several years, wood topsides GRP hull, the wood maintenance became too much like hard work as mentioned on a recent post. They are very well built with quality interior wood finish. Twin engines provided more than enough power, air draft 9’6”. I have owned several boats but the Storebro Royal the best by far.

Attached a pic a couple of years ago, leaving Gt Yarmouth harbour............ we weren’t out very long !
