Baraka (meaning breath of life or blessing in Sufi) is a 60ft long x 6ft 8in wide cruiser stern narrow boat built by Liverpool Boat Company (F. Johnson) and fitted out privately in 2005.
She is regularly serviced and maintained to a high standard.
Currently moored in Henley(Oxfordshire) /Reading (Berkshire) area and is licensed for the non-tidal Thames (Lechlade to Teddington)
I have been continuously cruising for nearly two years on the non-tidal Thames handling the boat on my own and have been very happy with it as my home so can vouch that it is easy to drive and ready to move onto immediately.

Currently there is a single bed room at the centre of the boat and a separate room at the back which is being used for storage / study, but this can easily be reconfigured into a double bedroom / other uses. There is a good amount of storage, space and potential to make into a lovely home. Prior to myself a family of four lived on the boat.
