Not sure what you mean by 'Widebeam'.
Our Sheerline is 10' 6" wide which is narrow for the
Broads where the usual width is 12' 6".
An ex-hire boat will most likely fall into that catagory.
There are plenty of them for sale during any year so
should be easy to find one to suit you.
A 40ft for that price may challenging though.

The older I get...
The better I was....!!

£20,000 for a 40' Broads cruiser might be OK if you want a project boat that needs a lot of work. Otherwise you're going to have to up your budget. Here's a 37' Bounty for sale, which might give you a better idea of what to expect (NB I know nothing about this boat, just found the advert by Internet search). http://www.wayfordmarineservices.co.uk/product/bounty-solar-37-coming-soon/

Unless you are lucky enough to live in the part of Ludham that has a mooring at the bottom of your garden, it may pay dividends to find a mooring first. Moorings for a 40 footer may not be so easy to come by.

Found mooring for a liveaboard. Just need a boat. I must say the one in the link 37' is more or less what we're looking for.

You may, or may not, be aware that a residential mooring requires planning permission and there are very few authorised residential moorings on the broads. There are probably more unauthorised residential moorings and you need to know which it is you will be paying for.

With an asking price of £3,500 more, it's hardly the same price. Throw enough money at it and you can have whatever you like. My point was not to try to sell any particular craft, but to demonstrate that £20K for a 40' Broads cruiser was somewhat unrealistic.

Another belated welcome...

And just to observe that boating in general can be very addictive and whatever budget you've set, you're almost certainly going to blow it Smile

And then there are the ongoing costs, which can only be controlled to a certain degree...

Enjoy Smile
