Broker's Comments

This is a fabulous example of the classic Peter Keay wooden narrowboat and a real rarity!

With a bespoke fit-out using reclaimed timber, she is unique, quirky and very likeable.

Decent sized accommodation, with plenty of seating, beds for two and a full heads/shower, together with the bespoke kitchen.

Powered by the formidable Lister 2 pot engine, this is one not to miss - she has even been featured by The Yorkshire Post!
