Broker's Comments

These boat details are subject to contract. Preliminary details awaiting owners consent.
This elegant lady loves taking her owner out a couple of times a week. Her beautiful lines and joinery are quite hypnotic. She has a romantic soul and is used to regular outings to the inland waterways. She has graced the River Crouch and the East coast of the UK. I cant help but feel she would be at home on the romantic French canals too. Note that the black and white photos were taken early this year.
Her present owner lives aboard and has cared for her and restored her to her former glory. The interior has a lovely smell of qualtiy wood.
This lady would appeal to an individual or couple who appreciate her traditional, classic lines.
I would imagine her new owner/s to have great depth to their personality and most definitely to be both practical and romantic at heart. If you meet that description then contact me to come aboard.
