45ft Trad Stern Narrowboat REDUCED £29,995

Rossendale Rose is a handsome well cared for one owner trad stern Doug Moore narrowboat with a full history file (very unusual for a boat of this age). The exterior paintwork was repainted in 2013 by the owners, with the roof being repainted in 2017 and she was last docked for blacking in April 2016. She has a recently refurbished interior including new carpets. As such, she represents an excellent opportunity to acquire a good value, well cared for starter boat.
