Diesel burner stove and water boiler making the cosy touch of the place. Electric Heads connected to a blank water tank, shower and basin located in front of the galley.
Up to the wheelhouse with seating bunch and a small aft deck for entertaining.
Foredeck with a storage in the peak, also dedicated to the generator space. Note the 2 red polls are to be mounted in the deck and will be the hoist for a bike or a scooter.
Also include in the sale is a Honda scooter (uk registered)
A great cruiser to explore all the French waterways and beyond but also to be used as a live aboard. As you can see the boat has suffered from a lack of recent presence and cleaning due to family circumstances and the owner can no longer look after her as she was used to. The winter with its dust and leaves has left some traces.
For more information or organise a visit, please contact Graham, your local broker at Boatshed Midi Canals.
