Broker's Comments

Here is a wonderful Narrow Dutch Barge which is perfect for living aboard.

Comfortable accommodation. Well heated. Good fittings and even a bath and a washing machine.

I f required the mooring would be available at a premium of £5,500. It is a lovely, secure, gated mooring off the Grand Union in Ealing/Southall. It includes a storage shed.

Plenty of on street parking. Power, solid fuel, gas and pump out on site. There is also a common room with washing machine and dryer.

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