Broker's Comments

These boat details are subject to contract.

This is a fabulous Traditional Stern Canal Boat. She offers lovely accommodation - bright, airy, well planned and has a spacious feel due to fit out and numerous large windows.

She benefits from a very modern feel on the inside whilst still retaining the traditional feel. She has solar panels, a great sounding engine (which you can get around easily to service) and a good set up electrically.

The stove has a back boiler so you will be able to keep cosy and heat your water simultaneously. The galley has plenty of work space and is very stylish. The heads open plan choice even means you have a bath on board too!

A great boat with a really gorgeous feel.

Note: Offers on the asking price may be considered.
