IS THIS Suffolk's answer to the Marie Celeste?

This cabin cruiser has been left abandoned and damaged, but apparently watertight, on the Nacton shore of the river Orwell.

The Inianga, a white cruiser with a distinctive red stripe, has been left on the edge of the river for some time.

Windows of the cabin have been smashed and it also appears to have been badly damaged internally – but the boat was still floating on the weekend high tide.
