The good ship "Joyeux" came upon us by accident.

We were looking for another boat at the time and bought him as a temporary measure till we found "Mr Right".

He was a bit like an old dog at a refuge really, showing only too visibly signs of thirty years of abuse at the hands of energetic holiday makers, and despite his habit of smoking a bit too much for his age, after a season or two of elbow grease and one or two new parts he seems to like us now.

Until more information magically appears on these pages, be happy to know he's a Bounty 34 centre cockpit, powered (if indeed the word "power" can actually be used in this context, but a "mature" Perkins 4108..
