Broker's Comments

Wide beam for sale in France. A 16 metre river cruiser Hancock & Lane in need of small repairs, general maintenance and painting of topside and hull.

She is well equipped, spacious and has lots of outdoor deck space protected by a bimini and aft deck canopy. Would make a good live aboard. Lying in a quiet mooring on the Canal du Midi near Narbonne.
