The Kings Shilling is a true Broads classic. Originally built in 1947, from Guatemalan mahogany over an English oak frame, she took her place in one of the most luxurious and desirable fleets on the Norfolk Broads.
Every element has been meticulously restored, inside and out by current owner Mark Cooper, after finding her in 2004 laid up in a Norfolk boat yard abandoned by her previous owner.
The restoration was overseen and aided by Mr Jonathan Greenway from Greenway Marine, Loddon, Norfolk
From cabin tops and running gear, engine bearers and a fully reconditioned 1.5 BMC (1963) the Kings Shilling has sympathetically been brought into the 21st century.
Complete with new tanks, completely new electrical and plumbing systems, insulations, ventilation and upholstery. In short a complete rebuild from stem to stern!
The Kings Shilling is a complete and comfortable 'live aboard' cruiser suitable for 1 or 2 persons. The Current owner has spent 4 years living aboard on the Thames and has available mooring contacts in Richmond and Hampton Court. Kings Shilling also has a full topside cover to protect from the worst of English weather but which also allows movement around the decks.
