Anca - Branson Katherine Dutch Barge - PRICE REDUCED


Boat Description

Anca, is a very well kept cruising Barge, fitted with an array of sophisticated systems to make long term cruising/living aboard comfortable and convenient, Anca is powered by a Gardiner 6LW 20, which was fully rebuilt in 2004, she also benefits from a Vetus Bow Thruster for ease of handling. Anka was designed for long term cruising with the French canals in mind, and her electronics are no exception, Down below there are 6 full size, comfortable berths and the saloon is fitted with a Waterford wood burning stove, whilst this pumps out a good amount of heat it is also linked to a Mikuni diesel burner for hot water and heating (as well as conventional immersion) this really is a one of a kind ‘constant cruiser’ Currently lying in Rochford, Essex, part exchange for a narrow boat considered.
