Broker's Comments

This is the perfect boat to start a life on the canal.

Her 41ft length makes her easy to handle amd turn without having to find a winding hole. The large cruider stern provides plenty of room for a socialble evening. The open plan saloon and galley are light and spacious. The cabin berth comes with a double orthopedic mattress. The shower room is larger than many for a boat of this size.

She is powered by a newly refurbished BMC 1500 diesel engine that was fitted in January 2019 and has approximately 30 hours of use. This alone is worth everything!

Heating is through a Webasto water heater installed in 2017 and controlled by a programmable unit to ensure that you walk onto a warm boat at the end of your day.

BSS - Current until July 2021
Last survey - 2016
Blacked - 2016 with Bitumen paint
