About this Classic Motor Cruiser

A charming mid century varnished mahogany "honeymoon" cruiser Moorhen was built by Moore’s of Wroxham in 1953, one of seven built for hire. She was the fourth so they had had time to perfect the design. Indeed this is a totally charming boat knows as a “honeymoon” boat for its cosy interior, ideal for two. At 22 foot these three berth cruisers were the smallest in Moore’s Broads fleet of which three or four still remain as testament to their builders’s skill.

She was built of mahogany on oak much of which has been replaced since the current owner bought her in 1996. There was 160 feet of new planking and the inside was entirely rebuilt. She is mostly varnished with off white painted decks.

The main cabin now offers a double and one single berths in the main cabin. The galley is separate and has twin sinks as well as three lockers for storage. The fore cabin has a washbasin with a shower, a toilet with a holding tank and a large hanging locker in the bow. Hot water is generated by a calorifier and stored in a 10 gallon tank under the aft locker.

The cockpit houses a fridge, a gas locker and a small foot locker to port. The cockpit is in fact quite spacious for a boat of this length with seating for skipper crew and maybe three passengers on the aft bench seat. The cabin roof and screen can be lowered for awkward bridge passages and I think that you would have a rather rakish looking cruiser if you were occasionally to leave behind the roof and cruise “bare”, as it were.

Moorhen is powered by a 3 cylinder Beta diesel installed in 1999 with 3200 hours on the clock. The engine is thought to consume about one litre per hour. The fuel tank holds over 100 litres while the fresh water tank located below the cockpit floor holds about 120 litres.

The vendor will be selling with a full inventory which includes the galley equipment and all safety equipment as befits a recent BSS certified boat.

As ever with boats cared for and maintained by Swallowtail Boatyard in the loving hands of the Buttifant family, she is presented after her usual winter refurb which included some varnish, remedial work to the portside window and this guarantees a level of presentation which will not disappoint the most eagle eyed purchaser.

Half a century or more of history comes as part of the package and any new owner will know that they are inheriting a valuable asset which speaks of craftsmanship and mid century holidays on the Norfolk Broads.
