62ft 6in Trad Stern Narrowboat £49,995

Shakira is a 62ft 6inch two-owner, two bedroomed cruiser stern narrow boat with a well planned interior. She has a Boat Safety Certificate valid until August 2022 and she was last docked for blacking in May 2018. The exterior condition is generally sound but she would benefit from a repaint and this has been reflected in the asking price. She represents an excellent opportunity to acquire a versatile family live-aboard boat. Viewing recommended. Moorings available.
