Broker's Comments

A stylish conversion that hasn’t forgotten practicality, with good insulation and original features such as hold covers and hold flooring being integrated into the transformation. With a new TRIWV and a very secure and reasonable priced mooring with own electricity and water meters in the south of France. This could be a real home from home in the sun with ability to change the scenery (and the neighbours) at will.

Du style du charme mais aussi pratique à vivre. Bonne isolation et certains reliquats de son passé comme le plancher en bois original et les anciennes écoutilles. Ce bateau logement est en régle avec Certificat Communautaire récent et emplacement autorisé, avec compteurs d’eau et électricité privatifs. Résidence principale ou secondaire dans le sud avec possibilité de changer de vue et de voisinage à volonté.
