Broker's Comments

This Barge has character, style and comfort wrapped into a spacious liveaboard cruiser.
The galley is within the wheelhouse and features a range of utilities and has sufficient space for preparing meals and socialising. The aft cabin is complemented by an ensuite heads, including shower and bath. Further forward of the wheelhouse is a roomy, open plan saloon, with office desk are and, featuring the second heads. The vessel is centrally heated and powered by an engine the owner reports to be reliable. The engine has been regularly maintained and serviced, powering a boat that is very maneuverable and suited to use on rivers, canals and inshore coastal routes, when the weather permits.

When I visited this boat I was impressed by its spacious, comfortable and cosy characteristics, including the soft furnishings and simple, yet attractive, wood finishing. There is more than ample living and storage space in this vessel, which would be more than suitable as a liveaboard or floating holiday home.

If you would like any further information, or to organise a personal viewing, then please contact our office and one of the team will be pleased to help.
