Boheme

Motor cruiser BohemeMotor cruiser Boheme was built by Stebbings in 1946 to a design by J.H. Hardman. LOA is 33.6′; beam is 10.2′; and draft is 3′. When built she had two 4-cylinder oil motors by Perkins. Stebbings built a number of cruisers to this design in the years after WW2.

The 1968 Llloyd’s Register of Yachts lists the owner as Mr Johnson of Ipswich and the home port as Woodbridge. The photo above was taken in 2010 on the Gloucester and Sharpness canal.

    I used to own this lovely boat. Actually I don’t think she did begin, as stated, with Perkins engines… I think she was first fitted with Morris Vedette petrol engines. I owned her around 1987 and I think those Perkins were about 20 years old then. And tended to overheat. I’d love to see her again. Maybe I would buy her back! graham.fellowes1@gmail.com

    Just a line to say that Boheme is not owned as stated by Mr Johson of Ipswich with home port Woodbrige but by myself in partnership with a Mr Douglas and that we keep her at Sharpness marina. We have put Boheme up for sale so ownership may change again.
