Hello ebayers and welcome to my classified advert for my Sisters widebeam narrowboat called Big Banyan (a Banyan is an Asian tree). She has owned Big Banyan for two years, buying her from the original owners. I have listed it on her behalf and would be able to answer basic questions about it if you ‘ask seller a question’. I would however recommend that you call her directly on 07726 926120 if you want a detailed discussion about the vessel or want to arrange a viewing. Please note that as this is listed on my account it will erroneously give the location as Kimpton, Hertfordshire. Big Banyan is currently moored in Hartford / Tingdene Marina (near Huntingdon, Cambridgeshire) on the River Great Ouse.Summary of the spec:High specification 62’ x 10’ wide beam Piper houseboat (2009), with bow well seating and cruiser stern layout.60hp Beta Marine Engine (270hrs)MCZ Wood pellet stove burner feeds central heating (eco-friendly) and capable of very high heat output, with low ash volume generated.

She has also been used as a liveaboard over the same period and has been a delightful boat to own and live on during this time. I am familiar with the boat, having been on several of the river cruises undertaken and would say that it is obvious that it was a very high quality build from new and that build quality remains evident throughout. There are small marks on the outer paintwork commensurate with age and that come from cruising / using the locks but overall Big Banyan remains tidy and very presentable. Overall, an ideal liveaboard vessel with high quality features and separate allocated space that can be used for homeworking. Alternatively, a useful size that maximises internal space while being able to negotiate much of the canal network for cruising, with space to invite friends and family via the second bedroom and lounge sleeping areas, plus room for all on the cruiser stern. Viewing is highly recommended. Please contact Sally on 07726 926120 if you want a detailed discussion about the vessel or want to arrange a viewing. Currently located in Hartford / Tingdene Marina (near Huntingdon) on the River Great Ouse.
