'Meander' is a very nicely presented, modernised and well equipped river cruiser that would probably have begun its life as a holiday hire boat on the Fenland waterways in the 1970s. Under the current ownership, she has undergone an extensive programme of improvements and included in the sale is a comprehensive inventory of equipment to enable a new owner to step aboard and go boating. The EA/Cam licence is paid to 31/3/2021 as is a mooring on the River Cam at Bottisham, which may be transferrable to a new owner subject to the mooring owner's consent. Viewings are by prior arrangement, so please contact us to make an appointment.
