General Comments by vendor
This is a very friendly, well managed private share scheme, where everyone takes a personal interest and responsibility in the boat.
It is moored in a modern, easy to get to marina, with access to several cruising routes. This is a great way to get into canal cruising.
The boat is regularly serviced, well appointed and furnished, with regular updates in furnishing and equipment.
New central heating
boiler and radiators (2017).
Altogether...a great boat.
