Broker's Comments

Here we have a very well presented and nice condition twin engined steel cruiser with bow thruster recently fitted. She has had many improvements and is a well looked after craft. The owner reports that she has a very sea kindly hull but is equally at home on the river. She would make some one a nice home and is AVAILABLE WITH AN IMMEDIATE MOORING (annual cost around £1500)
