Morgan Giles 42 narrow boat built 1969 for sale

Mark Savage has been in touch with the following message:

‘I am the owner of True Blue a 42 ft Morgan Giles narrowboat. I have spent the last three years working on her.

‘She is the last one left in her class and a fine example…

‘I have tried to find a home mooring for this beautiful craft, but cannot find one at a reasonable cost, and she is very much in danger of being struck by traditional metal narrowboat, this would be such a terrible loss, not only for me, but as a fine example of a Morgan Giles vessel built for the waterways.

‘I am trying to sell her – I am running out of time and I’m sad to say that this vessel will be lost for ever. She does indeed deserve to be preserved as part of the heritage of the waterways.’

There’s an ad on Apollo Duck – if you’re interested, click here and perhaps start researching vessel’s background…
