Broker's Comments

This is a wonderfully spacious boat with good fit out and a well made hull.

She has a massive lounge a good kitchen and bathroom and a fixed double bedroom with plenty of storage.

The engine is almost new and the boat has central heating as well as a solid fuel stove.

A great boat for one person or a couple to live aboard or cruise the waterways.
