Broker's Comments

This popular Birchwood 25 cruiser is nearing the end of a complete refurbishment. The pictures show the boat is in 'nearly finished' stages so the boat is still awaiting the refurbished engines to be dropped in, the instrument panel being updated and a good clean and polish.

Once she is finished she represents a good value for money inland cruiser with twin diesel engines offering economy and first class manoeuvrability.

Act now and grab yourself a winter bargain!
