Wednesday, 31 March 2010

Last Friday was a great day for Boatshed Grand Union as I saw a wonderful Dutch Barge - handed over to its new owner and another one listed on the site, It has taken a while to sell, boats of this size and specification don't come cheap and finding the right owner, at the right price, in a recession, takes time.

Gus has a keen eye on the budget as he’s raising money for Macmillan Cancer Support so he weighs the cost of each piece of equipment carefully to ensure as much money as possible goes to the charity.
