60ft Cruiser stern Narrowboat £69,950

She is a two-owner boat that has been meticulously maintained having benefitted from a full exterior re-paint in 2014 by Willow Boats. She offers well planned and beautifully constructed 2 berth accommodation that would be equally suited for live-aboard or holiday use. Viewing highly recommended. Mooring available by separate negotiation.
