For sale my much loved Alpha 32 Broads Cruiser – please read carefully as I have updated this.
Well equipped and spacious, she would make an ideal pleasure craft or liveaboard. I have owned her for three years and lived on her for two of those.
Since I last advertised her she has been lifted and inspected by a surveyor. An issue was discovered with the skeg that needs fixing. Not a difficult job, and would be cheap and easy to fix while having her out to be antifouled, which is due to be done.
No other significant problems were found.
She would benefit from a paint job, although she still cleans up well. Just a repaint of the decks would make a lot of difference.
She has central heating with radiators powered by an Eberspacher D5w. Just serviced and currently being flushed and recommissioned. A warm boat at the flick of a switch!
2 x 110ah leisure batteries – almost new
250w solar panel
Calorifier with 240v immersion heater, also heats from the engine.
Large bathroom with decent sized shower and handbasin.
Well equipped galley with full size cooker, microwave and Isotherm low draw fridge.
Manual toilet with pump out.
Shore power with mains sockets throughout
BMC 1.5 diesel, recent service. Runs well.
New bilge pump.
Stern gland recently repacked.
Four poster double bed in stern cabin.
Twin wardrobes and dressing table.
New carpet in saloon.
There are two bottles of propane in a gas locker at the stern.
All ropes are in excellent condition, and there is a life ring and mudweight.
Clean and tidy, though some updates could easily be undertaken. I have carried out a fair amount of work on Caprice in the time I’ve had her. She is now in good condition and with a few more cosmetic touches she would be even better.
The Boat Safety Certificate runs out in May. It will be no problem to renew it as no significant changes have been made to her since the last one.
You are welcome to contact me to arrange a viewing or ask more questions on 07990737023. I live nearby.

I am giving up boats this size as I do not need one now since I stopped living aboard. I will be very sad to see her go.
I have now moved her from her mooring in Wroxham. She is now moored close to Wroxham. Contact me for details if you wish to view her. I live nearby so can arrange a time at your convenience.
I would consider a part exchange with a smaller boat up to 25 feet.
Sputnik is a beautiful 20 ft river cruiser in good condition. Centre cockpit with spacious back bedroom and living room in the front. There is a stove in the front room installed to BSS safety standards. Cassette toilet. Engine is a 25 Hp Yamaha outboard. She has been a wonderful home to me in London for the last two years but now I am leaving the city and must reluctantly sell her. £4500 or nearest offer.
Please call me to come and view her or for a test drive on 07732594516 and ask for Daniel. Thanks
