Valued at £170,000 three years ago and now priced to sell.
Built in Holland in 1922 and renovated in 2007 to an exacting standard with a fabulously equipped interior with modern kitchen and bathroom.
Mr Pip was chosen for the size, and at under 20 metres long and under 4.1m wide will navigate even along the Baise river to Valance-sur-Baise and onto the Lot river and up to St-Sylvestre-sur-Lot.
The living accommodation consists of separate bedroom with double bed. (n.b. A previous second bedroom has been converted to a large cupboard accessed from the living room, and a wardrobe accessed from the bedroom. Easy modification back to bedroom should a second bedroom be required). Luxury shower room with saniflow toilet. Living room has a convertible sprung bed settee and the fully fitted kitchen has a quality worktop and breakfast bar.
The living accommodation is accessed from the wheelhouse and unusually for a boat, there is a proper staircase made of 6 hardwood steps which is comfortable to walk down forwards.
There is a seating area in the wheelhouse with a removable roof for al fresco dining. The table and seating area converts to a double bed, making this 3 double beds.
The heating system is composed of radiators supplied by an oil-fired marine combination boiler.
