She is a traditionally built narrowboat with an all steel construction, hull and superstructure, and would be ideally suited as a full-time liveaboard, pied-a-terre, or a holiday or weekend cruiser. If you look around you can see that the asking price of £32,950 is very reasonable for a boat of this quality and size with a mooring in this location and the owner will also consider reasonable offers; she is advertised for sale elsewhere.
