Not the typical cruiser you expect to see on the South Coast, but looking really nice.
When I was growing up near the Thames in the 60's these sort of cabin cruiser were maybe not popular as there weren't that many, but certainly a not uncommon sight. This specific design reminds me of a fleet of hire boats, I think they were called Bates, Star boats based in Staines, but the quality and varnished topsides probably suggest she was a private boat.
Great boat for weekending around Chichester harbour.
