Broker's Comments

This is a good looking trad stern narrowboat with a great pedigree in the Mike Heywood hull.

She looks good and is well maintained. The accommodation is well thought out and well executed. She is ready to go for a seasons cruising.

This boat would also make a great live aboard for one person or a couple.

The rural marina mooring on the Thames near Oxford would be available to the buyer. Non residential at approx £2000 per year.
