Broker's Comments

This narrowboat was designed and commissioned as an Icebreaker and has a stylish and distinctive Josher style bow.

The large forward well deck provides ample space to enjoy the world slipping by away from the noise of the engine. Accommodation comprises an open plan saloon and galley at the forward end. A shower room with dump-through toilet and a cabin aft.

The saloon includes a solid fuel stove which the owner says more than adequately heats the whole craft. Side hatches to each side provide light and ventilation and have clear perspex panels for the rainy and cold days.

The boat has been re-powered with a Yanmar 36Hp engine that is easily accessed from the aft utility area.
