Broker's Comments

Designed by Thornycroft at Eel Pie island in 1935, this boat combines style and comfort, from a previous age. You can see how well she has been maintained from the photograph of the hull, with a powerful 35hp engine, good level of navigation equipment and a stove, she is a traditional river boat with bags of character.
