Up until 1989 / 90. N24 was owned by Brooms and was registered as
Navigator 4 which would indicate it was probably Number 4 of its class in Brooms hire fleet. Since then it has been in private ownership and just registered as Navigator.

I’m not sure if it’s the same boat but one called “Navigator” was substantially rebuilt a few years ago with a complete new bottom and a new engine.  It looked stunning last time I saw it.

In a nutshell
The Moore the merrier.

Yes I had that thought initially too Doug, but it turns out not to be that one, which is actually reg number Y819. Stunning as you say, after it suffered with what I was told was Honey fungus and the then owners had to sell it on. A  beautiful  restoration job,  but I think it's fair to say the new owners had a pretty large wallet for what was needed, and some!

They are beautiful boats and some years ago we had chatted at length to the then owners of Y819 at Gays Staithe, long before they had the problems which forced them to sell, and it was one of the first woodys that I fell in love with ! It was really unfortunate that the fungus developed during what I believe was a long winter with no visits, and the fungus took hold. Hopefully a rare thing?  

Having seen the seemingly never ending work of a woody owner at our moorings this last couple of years,  in their efforts to restore an old Judith, I can only say to Rockabilly pay serious attention to that survey. Fingers crossed for you that all is well, and welcome to the forum! Keep us updated.

All the best,  Karen

I’m sure someone who owned one once upon a time told me that his was planked up lighter than others. I thought that it was simply called Navigator but I could have misheard. Definitely a boat that looks right from all angles and worth investing in so long as there are no major problems. I think I also heard of one that had gone a bit soft under the shower tray area along with the adjoining bulkhead so it pays to focus on what you can’t easily see. And it’s good luck whichever boat you buy.

In which case, its a super boat, weve been shed mates for a few years and Navigator has always been well cared for and loved.

Good luck with her.
