Broker's Comments

This one certainly is a looker. Lovely lines. Newly painted. A well laid out and cared for boat -ready to go.

This boat would make a superb, roomy and comfortable live-aboard. She will be a joy to cruise on canals or rivers.

Her airdraft with wheelhouse down is comparable to a narrowboat.
