60ft Barge Style Narrowboat £95,000 - NOW SOLD

 UTA has now sold, in fact to the first person who viewed her!  Congratulations to the new owners!

For those of you who want one of our boats but can't wait, we have a very rare chance.  Rarely do our boats appear on the used market, but the owners (from new) of UTA have decided to hang up their windlasses (windlii?) for the time being so she is for sale! (The boat not the owner).

A boat like this that is just 4 years old and would cost over £150,000 to build new, surely will not hang around for long so please contact us to arrange a viewing.  07989 306176.
