This is our beloved Birchwood 25 Interceptor - 'Adel'
First registered in 1982 and fitted with a powerful Mercruiser Petrol engine and outdrive. She has spent her early life at sea, followed by the Norfolk Broads and her later years on the inland river Thames where she remains to this day.
The boat has been very well maintained with many improvements in the last two years. She comfortably sleeps four people (2 in forward V berth and 2 on dinette). There is space for a further 2 in the cockpit.

We have just enjoyed a fabulous two week summer holiday upriver to Abingdon on the Thames. The boat is used every weekend locally to where she is moored. The engine is serviced annually by a certified marine engineer. Despite being nearly 40 years old the engine delivers plenty of beans under the bonnet and can really shift the boat with ease.
All in all, a well cared for vessel in great condition both inside and out and well worth a viewing.
