Indeed. The interior photos of their Alpha 32 forward steer 2 berth stick in my mind. 

It was an amazing boat, we hired it from DRL (sorry) a few times. It was getting a bit tired by then though. There were beautiful etched mirrors above the 'fireplace' and wardrobe doors. Within a season they had been broken. Very sad.

I think one has to go into this type of boat ownership with your eyes open. These craft are not Moody, Swan, Princess or even Westerly or Macwester where the builder has a real interest in reliability

Buy by all means but I suggest that you hang on until at least October, prices traditionally drop before Christmas when people off-load their once loved hole in the water before the winter costs start

Oldgregg has the courage to say it and I agree with him. A survey will not show up deficiencies in the mould quality or laying up process. A collision, however, soon will!

The Sabena livery was pretty loud as was popular at the time but they did think out the box when it came to their fitouts.

That's one way of putting it! I remember hiring Magnifique for the day (yes, really) back in the mid 90's and I've not seen an interior quite like it.

How about this it's selling at the end of the season https://www.topsail.co.uk/boat.php?refnum=2044

I enjoyed looking at the photos of that, it was like going back in time. My first ever visit to the Broads as a child was on a Broom Skipper with the exact same layout. Sandhawk is a very original 40 year old boat in many ways.

So Sanderson are selling their fleet??

Their fleet has been up for sale since last year, many of the listings on Topsail have now gone but three are left. Not sure if that means they have actually sold the ones that have gone though as I havent been through Reedham since last spring.

Could be a bit controversial here, but 37.5k for that makes less than 30k for this https://www.nya.co.uk/boats-for-sale/aquafibre-42-4/
look a bit of a bargain.

Corsica is up for sale at Richardson's, only a few years ago it went through a major refit. I'm sure it was one of the old Thames fleet and would defo be worth a look. That said for some reason I don't think it ever hired very well since being put back into service.
