Broker's Comments

Boatshed Liverpool are delighted to offer this piece of Maritime history. She was built by WJ Yarwood at Northwich for the River Weaver Navigation Company in 1937. She was designed primarily to serve the purpose of towing dumb barges but she was also used to transport stores and plant material. She has full photographic history available with her, she has been owned by the current owner since 2005 when she was converted to a liveaboard. In 2007 she completed a 860 mile delivery trip cruising with ease at over 7 knots, she also obtained Historic Ship Status the same year. If you are looking at purchasing a liveaboard with stacks of character and history then please contact me for more information or to arrange a viewing.
