Broker's Comments

This charming and rugged barge is believed to have been built in the late fifties as a Tug Hopper for BW and it became private in 1972 in the current ownership. It has undergone various changes and roles and had a new superstructure fitted in 2006.
There is comfortable wheelhouse with removable top and excellent all round vision. The separate engine room is spacious and well organised. A useful and unusual feature is the upper seating area-ideal for passengers and evening lounging about.
It is a heavily built craft giving a feeling of confidence and just requires an internal refit.
