While eating our fish and chips at Stalham Staithe we saw this huge river cruiser Dragonfly.Can anyone tell us of its history.I was told years ago that it has a lifting centreplate that runs through its boat table.Ive seen it a couple of times over the years.Its one of the biggest yachts I’ve seen.

The River Cruiser Class entry shows that she was built in 1905 by Herbert Bunn of Wroxham, but is scant on other details.

Dragonfly won the Yare Navigation Race in 2019

Here are a few pictures from the race

I think she looks fab, then again I think they all look great considering most are antiques.
