Broker's Comments

Here is a piece of history which has been lovingly restored and well maintained.

A spacious and comfortable home with a lovely warm feeling and generous headroom, there is room to expand by completing the aft cabin.

The residential mooring is available by agreement with marina management and is within an easy 10 minute drive to mainline stations of Hemel Hempstead and Berkhamstead.

Please note that this boat is unpowered, with no engine.
