Alpha Craft 32 Pre Purchase Survey
Features: A very nice forward master en-suite cabin with island bed and plenty of space
A recent pre purchase inspection took place at Herbert Woods of Potter Heigham, being the home of one of the largest and long established hire fleet operators on the Norfolk Broads. They regularly sell older hire boats in order to replace with newer versions with improved specifications so as to maintain a modern attractive fleet
This Alpha 32 is a great cruiser for the Norfolk Broads / inland waterways with a lot of space and well design for extended cruising. These ex hire craft often come with the original simple interior design which is great for some one who likes to put his own mark to the boat by adding personal features.
Great features include en-suite large master cabin situated forward with an island bed with lots of space to move around. Layout also features a centre / aft stateroom with convertible double bed and a well equipped side galley
This boat has a raised centre cockpit / steering position with a sliding winch operated roof and ample room for all to watch the passing broadland scenery at leisure, with the single diesel engine positioned beneath.
The only problems found were the usual osmosis (not severe) to be expected in a GRP broads motor cruiser of this vintage plus some structural deterioration in the wood bearers located in the aft twin cabin and beneath the aft cockpit entrance – in our opinion being consequent of a blocked aft well drain
