Jemma is a beautiful 1998 two-owner narrow boat with a boatman’s cabin and engine room. She has been maintained with care, and looks like a much younger boat. There is a cratch and cover to the front, with a solid brass headlamp (originally from a fire engine). The interior has been very cleverly laid out to maximise the space available. Viewing recommended. The BSSC expires in October 2022. Moorings are available by separate negotiation.
