Broker's Comments

What an amazing live-aboard or holiday home! Beautifully converted using re-claimed timber and craftsman finished, this vessel has the space, the power and the construction to be a beautiful floating home or unique holiday home. She comes with her own car parking for two cars, shore power and mains water and stunning absolute waterfront views.
Powered by a large Lister diesel engine she could take you on coastal voyages to anchor up in a quiet bay or across the Channel to travel down the French Canals. The world is your oyster with this vessel. Can it get any better than this?
