70′ Trad Narrow Boat ‘Utrecht’ £85,000 OIRO

Built by the renowned boat builder, Barry Hawkins of Baddesley Wharf as a 60′ boat for the original owners, a couple from Utrecht in the Netherlands (hence the name!), the boat was delivered in 2002 and it remained based at the Wharf for the next nine years. In 2007, the owners decided to have her extended by 10 feet to add an extra cabin to accommodate a small study and beds for more family visitors, a job that was expertly carried out by the same builder. ‘Utrecht’ is well equipped for family life afloat ‘off grid’ and now in the hands of the third owners since March 2018, she is offered for sale following their move onto dry land. Viewings are available 7 days a week by prior appointment please.
