Broker's Comments

This Springer Waterbug is the perfect boat for day trips along the canal to the pub or for cosy weekends.

She is bright and attractive inside and out. Her present owners have shown great love and care and are reluctant sellers - but times move on!

Her large aft deck provides plenty of space for the family who want to help with the work or watch the world go by. Down the companionway steps to the galley to starboard with a sink and two-burner cooker and oven. Opposite is a seat that could be used as a single berth. Forward of this is the Heads with a porta-potti toilet. Towards the bow is a dinnette table with seating for four. The table can be set to a lower position to provide a double berth.

The boat is powered by a 2017 Honda 20Hp Outboard motor with electric start.

Blacked - 2016 with Bitumen
BSS - Current until December 2020
