Turner Butler are delighted to offer the market a truly unique and historical river boat business that represents both a lifestyle opportunity and profitable business all in one.

The trading vessel itself has been valued at circa £145,000. It is in an excellent state of repair and is a fully registered British vessel. It is worth noting that marine mortgages are available for registered trading vesels such as this.
