60ft Trad Stern Narrowboat NEW PRICE £69,995

Gwladys Again is a beautifully presented 2005 60ft trad stern narrow boat that has been subject to a comprehensive improvement programme both inside and out and looks like a much younger boat. There is a cratch and new cover to the front, a Houdini hatch to the galley and two sets of side doors in the saloon. Gwladys Again was fully repainted in July 2019 and was last docked for blacking in March 2019. The BSSC is valid until July 2025. Viewing highly recommended.
