Broker's Comments

If you are looking for a London pied a terre or a weekend retreat, look no further than this smashing little cruiser.

Warm and cosy with the doors and hatches shut tight, the boat takes on another life in the summer heat - with extra double alfresco sleeping quarters under the sprayhood on the bridge!

The rear cabin gives privacy away from the rest of the crew and there is plenty of room to socialise whenever you choose in the main saloon or on the bridge.

If a weekday crash pad is what you need, this prime mooring in a quiet, secure location is close to the city (Zone 2) and is in easy walking distance of tube & overground stations, shops, pubs and restaurants.

With twin engines, this boat can also take you where you want to go and has its own piece of history - it took part in the Queens Jubilee Pageant in 2012.

A must-see for the coming season.
