Broker's Comments

This ex:BWA workboat has just had a reconditioned engine and new gearbox fitted.

Ideal for a canal business either in freight or supplying other canal users with goods such as solid fuel, gas or chandlery.

Also make a nice project converting into a narrow boat live aboard. Convert the aft cabin into sleeping/cooking area and use the front cabin for storing tools and spare parts.

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