Broker's Comments

We are pleased to offer for sale, once more, this classic Humber Barge, liveaboard.

She has a ton of space on board with 2 bedrooms, bunk room, large lounge and kitchen; shower and toilet.

The mooring, being a staithe, is available with the boat.

The Owner has a wealth of information on her, having worked on her when she plied her trade up and down the Humber & Trent. He now needs to sell, due to ill-health and she is priced accordingly.

These boat details are subject to contract.
Note: Offers on the asking price may be considered.

This Humber Barge 75ft has been personally photographed and viewed by Paul Watson of Boatshed Yorkshire. Click here for contact details.
