'Aquae Sulis' is a well maintained example of a traditional aft cabin barge offered for sale with a transferable Thames mooring with full marina facilities.

The bow cabin consists of two single berths located on the port and starboard sides with a small seating area in fore peak with an escape/ventilation hatch above. Moving aft there is a reception hallway with storage and hanging space to port, plus a useful  office space on the starboard side. Adjacent to this is the main WC/Shower room also with hot and cold water plus a separate shower cubicle and an electric WC connected to the second holding tank. The main saloon and galley are centrally located with an open plan layout which is both light and bright from her windows and overhead hatch.
