Classic Hire Boat (1938) – Project Rebuild
This ‘stylish’ wood motor cruiser is one of the very first broads hire motor boats being built in 1938 by AO King of Wroxham. Being a perfect example of the historic 1930s – British Railway Poster – “The Broads – It’s Quicker By Rail ” images that we see reproduced today.
This fine vessel has been languishing out of the water at St Olaves Marina for some considerable time awaiting a kind buyer whom will spend the money and take the time to restore to its original beauty.
This boat has an elegance all of its own
The buyer was originally looking for additional accommodation in his garden and thought that a boat-annex in the garden would serve the purpose, but in the event was so struck by this classic that he is undertaking a project rebuild
Louis Bodmer has undertaken a comprehensive pre purchase survey and as one can imagine she is in need of overall restoration with such as daylight showing through planks with rotten planks, plus lifting decks, replacement cabin sides and the list goes on. Plus all electrics and fuel system need to be renewed.
