This weeks pick is listed with ABNB - nb George Albert.
There is a lot we like about this boat, starting with the price. I now have a preference for a boat with a second cabin so I have somewhere to go and work. This one would be perfect. Not only that, if we took out the breakfast bar there would be space for a 1+1 dinette. Perfect! We like the colour, the name's ok, we're leaning towards a cassette loo as our preference and it has both central heating and a solid fuel stove.
On the minus side... it looks slightly awkward access from the trad hatch, there is no washing machine, the bed would need to be turned around to a cross bed, it doesn't have a cratch/cover.. so there's a bit of money to be spent. At the price, that's fine with us.
I don't know who John McIntosh is and google hasn't helped with that.
