Broker's Comments

These boat details are subject to contract. Preliminary details awaiting owners consent.

This Lady is an authentic Dutch Steel Gronningham Tjalk.
Made for cruising Dutch canals, she benefits from a very low air draft and is very easy to handle. She has a cosy warm interior which is enhanced by the wooden joinery. She would be a cosy liveaboard for a couple. However there is plenty of room to have visitors to stay.
The current owner fell in love with this vessel in Holland. She sailed her back and has used her as a liveaboard.
She is located in a marina which is convenient for motorway and rail links to London and the Channel Tunnel. She is not being offered with her present mooring, however the owner informs me that the new buyer should be able to approach the marina management for permission to remain.

Note: Offers on the asking price may be considered.
