Broker's Comments

An ideal river cruiser this Birchwood 22 is very nicely presented.
The refurbished engine was fitted less than two years ago, the Z drive was refurbished in 2005.
This boat packs in sleeping space for 4, a galley that has everything you would need and the heads are in a seperate compartment. The cockpit is a also a nice size - amazing what you can get into 22ft!
These boat details are subject to contract.
