Broker's Comments

This very young 60' canal boat is almost finished. The hull was built by the well respected narrow boat builder Mel Davis. Fit out requires finishing, but this will give the new owner the opportunity to finish this in your own taste and style. She is both well equipped and well made and is ready to be moved into whilst the finishing is carried out.
