Broker's Comments

This 55 foot narrow boat is built by Jonathon Wilson and fitted out by Stephen Goldsbrough. She has been in the same family ownership for a number of years and has been well maintained.
She has a comfortable traditional interior, with the main cabin at the stern coming straight from the helm. The bathroom leads off containing a half sized bath, hand basin, shower and porta potti. The galley is a well equipped with hob, grill and oven, washing machine, fridge and plenty of storage. The saloon area is comfortable with a wood burning stove which leads up to the cratch. The settee can also be converted to another double berth. There are also radiators throughout.
She has a Ford 1.8 diesel engine and also a generator.
She is ideal for cruising the canals and also large enough to be used as a live aboard.

The mooring maybe transferrable subject to permission from the marina operators.
