Boat Description

A fantastic opportunity to purchase not only a converted Thames Lighter Barge but also a boat that found fame on Channel 4’s ‘Grand Designs’ in 2007, but ‘Annie Jane’ has come a long way since her Grand Designs days and is now a well thought out living space with two large bedrooms, two bathrooms and a practical kitchen as well as two reception rooms and a sun deck on top.
