Brief History

'Whimaway has been in the present ownership for 17 years. During this time she has been moored at Oxford, windsor and in Yalding,Kent.  She has cruised the complete length of the Thames from Lechlade to Teddington.

Although some attention to various details are required, as you would expect with any boat, there is nothing that is not actually working.

A nice genuine boat that is now offered for sale due to a change of circumstances making it unusable for the owner.

New Boat Safety Certificate Valid until March 2023
