Broker's Comments

Previously the Dusseldorf boat show Birchwood TS37 show boat, she looks like she has been well loved and her current owners really appear to have invested in her, making her not only lovely accommodation afloat, but a real proposition for some serious travel - at sea and amongst rivers and canals!

Her light, bright and airy saloon, with stacks of room and storage and a well equipped helm position, leads to roomy forward accommodation, including a lower saloon area that converts to a double berth, a great galley, a day head and a large forward cabin.

Venturing aft, you'll find a real feature aft cabin, with plenty of storage, an island double bed and an en suite toilet.

Outside, we present a fantastic aft deck, with easy access from the stern or side decks and a fly bridge - this boat really does give you the best of all worlds!

She smells great and feels nice, tidy and clean - all in all, boats like this don't come along that often, so do take an early peek!

Direct from her owner:

The boat was originally on the Norfolk Broads and in Aug 2019 achieved a Norfolk Broads Safety Certificate. This included new fire extinguishers, upgraded gas pipes and connections and labelling the key turn off valves.


The boat was re-wired in July 20, the isolator switches were upgraded and new batteries fitted. The house batteries were increased from two to four, giving 440A. A new Victron charger was fitted together with a Victron Bluetooth monitor. In May 22, a new battery and relay was fitted for the bow thruster. Two new starter batteries were fitted in July 23.

In July 20, 12V sockets and USB charging points were added to the dinette and installed on the flybridge. These were extended in May 23 to provide USB sockets in the saloon and in the aft cabin. The electric sockets were modernised and turned into doubles, with USB charging points.

Navigation Equipment

In April 21 a new VHF radio was fitted, the Icom M423GE DSC with an Icom Command mic on flybridge. A new Shakespeare 1.2m antenna and GPS receiver was fitted. To provide transmit and receive capability in June 21, an AIS Em-Trak B952 5 W class B with a new dedicated 1.2m antenna were installed. Two electrical backbones were also installed to facilitate any future additions.

In May 23 a new Simrad Go9 chart plotter and Simrad Halo 20+ radar were installed. As well as modernising the navigation equipment this also significantly reduced the weight of the radar arch when lowering for bridges, etc. I was told this is a key design feature of this model, so it can access the French waterways. I mainly drive the boat from the flybridge. The new chart plotter means I can Bluetooth to a tablet on the lower helm on long passages and when the autopilot is on.

These boat details are subject to contract.
