Luxury boat up for raffle at just £10 a ticket

An Irish couple have put their boat up for sale, but are doing so in a less than conventional method.

Michael and Catherine, from Co. Kildare, own a wide beam barge built brand new last year. They have decided to raffle the boat, named Temonos (Greek for sanctuary), and give someone the opportunity to experience the fun and joy that it can offer.

The couple said: "Whether it is gazing out the window as the ducks pass, sitting out on the roof with a coffee (or a beer) or the excitement of casting off the ropes and heading off, the barge offers endless opportunities."

The couple added that it is is 'an ideal gift for loved ones, with the canal and river networks of not only Ireland, but also Britain and Europe' and offered people to 'buy your opportunity to be the new owners of this luxury barge that combines sanctuary with adventure!'

The cost of a ticket is £10. The deadline to enter is December 18, 2021, or when all tickets sell.
