Broker's Comments

This beautiful barge was purchased by the current owner in 2010, she had previously been used as a holiday boat for trips across the channel between the Netherlands, Belgium, France, and the UK. Over the years the current owner has lovingly built and converted her into the wonderful one-bedroom studio barge she is today.

She has been extensively cruised around the London area and always turns heads as she passes. Smaller enough to navigate the canals but offering more space than a wide beam, she has been envied by many of the owner's boating friends.

She was last out of the water in 2019 when she was surveyed, blacked and new anodes fitted. She previously had solar fitted but has since been removed, however, all the cabling is still in place, ready to take a new modern panel.

She is offered without a mooring.
