This Norfolk Smuggler Gaff Cutter is a boat that in my opinion will really turn heads. With the style & lines of the traditional yachts but the advantages of a GRP hull, this boat has a very solid feel to her with a finish & quality that I believe will be hard to beat. With a beautiful pine mast that can be lowered using the lifting bowsprit as a fulcrum coupled with her manual swinging keel, this is a yacht that can take you to anchorages that others would not even dare. Fitted with a many home comforts including Eberspacher heating, hot & cold pressurised water, spacious heads & compact yet functional galley, this Norfolk Smuggler is a boat that will bring a smile to her Crew’s faces. Once you step aboard, it is clear to see that this boat has been finished to a very high specification. With Lewmar Winches, Bronze Portlights, bronze mushroom fittings & solid teak decks you can see the craftmaship & engineering that went into finishing her. Once in the cabin, the solid wood cabinetry is complimented by soft furnishings giving a warm & welcoming feel to her. This definitely feels like a boat that is a pleasure to spend time aboard. She also has a comprehensive electronics suite
This Norfolk Smuggler is clearly a boat that has had a lot of love put into her build & finish & is sure to be appreciated by her new owners. She has recently been lifted and had a new coat of anti-foul applied and her hull polished & she is currently afloat at Titchmarsh Marina, Walton on the Naze, Essex.
