Broker's Comments

A clean looking example of these very spacious river cruisers. Ideal as a live aboard or for customers with large families, or maybe if you just like a lot of space these are a lot of the boat for the money.
With a wide beam and good headroom and all the benefits of home including catalytic heating, a full size cooker and galley make long stays aboard far more comfortable.
She has a good sized diesel engine so will be up to punching the tides without too much cause for concern.
All in all a very versatile cruiser with plenty of options for the new owners.
