Video (When We Dance)

An absolutely stunning example of this classic British sports cruiser where no expense has been spared by the current owners in maintaining her in immaculate condition. Improvements and maintenance over the last couple of years include new cockpit upholstery, new helm’s chair, new instrument gauges, a brand new Mercruiser Alpha One stern drive, full engine and stern drive servicing, hull cleaning, polishing and antifouling. The radar arch has also been modified so that it can be lowered for river bridges, making the Great Ouse accessible up as far as Great Barford. The owners have had fantastic fun with this boat, comfortably cruising at 4 knots on the river and also having a blast out at sea in the Wash and along the coast where she is capable of planing speeds in excess of 30 knots. They are very reluctantly parting with ‘When We Dance’ to replace her with another boat with more accommodation. Viewings are by arrangement, so please call us to make an appointment to see this beautiful vessel.
Additionally, the owners have kindly provided us with several videos showing details of the vessel’s systems and operation, which we are happy to share with interested parties.
