Broker's Comments

We are honoured to be able to offer to the market the Thames Sailing Barge "kitty". She is being sold as an ongoing business. At over a hundred years old she certainly turns heads as she gracefully sails past on charters. She is coded for up to 44 people whilst under sail ! and has a class 5 & 6 licence. There is too much to say about her so please give me a call to discuss and to book a viewing of her.

These boat details are subject to contract.
Note: Offers on the asking price may be considered.
