Broker's Comments

This is a rare oppotunity to live on the water on this spacious 78ft Blackwater Barge. The Barge has a large saloon, good size kitchen, bathroom with bath and three bedrooms. With all the key main services connected and a very reasonable annual rent for the mooring in this central Colchester location this barge offers a realistic alternative family home at a fraction of the cost.
