Si nota un piccolo ritocco sopra la parte seuperiore del riflesso della barca nell'acqua, una leggera abrasione lungo il lato sinistro in basso vicino all'angolo dovuta alla battitura della cornice. Un sottile ritocco orizzontale (cm 5 circa) lungo la sponda dietro la barca.
L'opera si presenta in ottimo stato di conservazione.
