Broker's Comments

I wasn't expecting much - after all Springers get some bad press. I was delighted to find a little gem. A well maintained Springer can hold it's head up with any narrowboat and this one had its head held high.

At the last survey the surveyor commented "This is probably the best maintained Springer I have ever seen"

This is an easy boat to fall in love with. Reverse layout, Art Nouveau glass work, almost new engine - what more could you want.

Ideal for cruising or as a small live-aboard.

A mooring is available for this boat at BWML Apsley Marina, subject to agreement with marina management. A premium may be payable for transfer of mooring.
