Broker's Comments

If you are looking for a boat to live on in comfort and cruise the waterways in style, this could be the boat for you.

Suitable for Canal or river she looks elegant and is roomy and comfortable inside.

The wheelhouse may not have a wheel, but it is a great conservatory / living room. With the walls out it becomes a gazebo and with the roof down, airdraft is just a bit more than an standard narrowboat. You can enjoy alfresco cruising down the canal.

These boat details are subject to contract.
Note: Offers on the asking price may be considered.
