Brokers comments.

We are informed by the vendor that the hull of “Pru Sarn” has had some overplating when the vessel was ashore previous to her last lift in August 2021. Full hull blacking & anodes etc

had also been carried out in 2021. These little narrowboats are very desirable & “Pru Sarn” is no exception, some cosmetic work is required though she remains ready

in her current state to cruise the Inland waterways.
