Lady Daphne up for sale

Following the news last year that Lady Jean was for sale, we now find an advertisement Lady Daphne at Faversham for winter re-fit Feby 2012on the boatshop24.co.uk website for her sister barge, the Lady Daphne.

Lady Daphne, built in 1923 by Short Bros Ltd, was sold in 1996 to her present company.   A massive restoration programme has taken place with considerable replacement of the structure and the internal fittings in the last two winter refits.   All this work has been undertaken whilst building up a successful charter business, and competing in the annual Barge Matches. 

Here’s the link to the advert.
