'Aerial' was built in 1936 by Leo Robinson in Oulton Broad, Suffolk.
She underwent a full restoration from 1990 to 1999 and has been professionally maintained every year since.
She is an excellent example of a traditional Norfolk Broads Cabin Yacht and is a real joy to sail.
Registered with the River Cruiser Class sail number 422
Currently lying afloat on the Norfolk Broads.
