Broker's Comments

Wide beam live aboard for sale in Burgundy France. Boatshed Bourgogne is pleased to offer this Hancock & Lane wide beam canal and river boat for sale. A great boat for holidays or live aboard. This boat was regularly used and maintained by her owner until 2013 when ill health forced a layup. Oodles of charm and character and probably easily tinkered back into service. An easy project to set you up on the French and European waterways at very reasonable cost. For more information and appointments to view, please contact Graham WHARMBY your Boatshed broker at Boatshed Bourgogne.
