Price: £79,995

A 27ft 1962 Johnson and Jago 4 berth classic Thames river cruiser

Melody is a beautiful handcrafted wooden boat, built by Johnson, Sons and Jago Ltd on the shores of the River Thames at Leigh-on -Sea, Essex. The boat was commissioned as an engagement present for his then fiancé. The owner sadly passed last year and the boat now belongs to his daughter who has very fond memories of traveling on the Thames, the broads the canals, lake district, and the Scottish Loch's. The boat appears to have been maintained to a high standard throughout its 59 years.

The stern cabin has a dinette area with removable table stand and seating that converts into a double berth. This leads into a galley area with a wardrobe for storage, sink/drainer unit and cooker. A built in bar with further storage is opposite next to a cubicle with a porta potti toilet.

Steps lead up to the captains cabin with locker storage and skippers wheel.

The bow cabin is lined with further seating which converts to 2 single berths.

12 months leisure mooring for the price of 9 at Gayton, Anderton, Alvechurch or Kings Orchard Marina when purchasing this boat.
