Broker's Comments

These boat details are subject to contract.
A superb opportunity to own a very spacious converted Thames Lighter. She has an excellent mooring that is rented and new owners will be able to take over this spot subject to marina approval.
She offers a family, fabulous accommodation and appears to have been fitted out to a good standard. At the moment there are 3 bedrooms with 2 receptions and a kitchen diner. She is easily accessed via her gang plank and has the benefit of being able to drive the car right by the mooring which makes life a lot easier when you come back with your shopping. The marina itself has a very lively bar and also a cafe too. Rochester is a lovely town and has excellent motorway and rail links. If you want a detached residence which is affordable then this is worth a look. The owner is in a position to consider a part exchange if you have a property to subject to a property valuation.
Note: Offers on the asking price may be considered.
