Broker's Comments

Boatshed Grand Union is pleased to offer this great little Peter Nichols Narrowboat.

Just right for a day boat, weekender or holiday cruiser for a couple. She is beautifully maintained with an almost new engine.

An opportunity to start narrowboating on a great vessel at a very good price.
