Broker's Comments

Live aboard motor cruiser for sale in France. Boatshed Bourgogne is pleased to present this well looked after 1998 Dutch steel cruiser for sale. Just two owners from new and in our vendors hands for the last 11 years. Our current owners have cruise mainly the French waterways including the Midi and Capestang bridge too as all the screens and the arch collapse.
Our vendors use the boat as a full time live aboard and cruise extensively during the summer months.
Well equipped and maintained for long term cruising and or residential use, it will make a great cruiser for a couple and guests or a small family. Good size aft deck, a spacious sheltered cockpit with helm & wide, well protected side decks make this a very practical and reassuring motor cruiser. Bright interior, cosy and inviting I was impressed by the comfortable accommodation including a very good sized shower room.
For more information or organise a visit, contact Graham your local broker at Boatshed Bourgogne.
These boat details are subject to contract.
