We were on the Thames in April 2007 when we noticed “Old Pephnicute” at Bourne End. She is a rarer Bermuda 34 and has the layout with two aft sleeping cabins over the more convential one, rare for a non RS (rear sundeck) model. Her circular bathroom window gives her different layout away!
A few months later I noticed her for sale. The owner kindly sent me these pictures and advised me she was built for a private owner in the late 70s as “Free Spirit”. Having never been on hire she was in superb condition, with most areas in the original gelcoat!
With her superb condition she sold easily and was loaded onto a lorry and set off to start the next chapter in her life with her new owner in Rye, Kent.
A couple of years or so later she changed hands again and found her way to the Norfolk Broads.
