steel narrow boat / barge
damaged new shell
spares or repair
Here we have a great opportunity to own a new but damaged steel narrowboat/barge.
This boat was nearing completion and was built to very high standards but fortunately suffered damaged whilst being transported.
The boat was built to high standards by a professional fabricator for his own personal use.
She measures: 22ft 8″ long x 7ft 3″ wide. Weighs 3.5 ton.
She comes complete with battery racks, engine bearers, weed trap (lid missing) One door is missing and the main hatch is missing. There is also a front hatch, engine hatch, fuel filler (no tank) fitted.
It is as you see in the photos.
The boat has been kept covered since its misshap. But it is a nice roomy size inside and would be great as a weekend retreat, liveabord, etc as slightly wider than a normal narrowboat.
It has full standing head height inside. I am 6ft 2″ and can stand inside it
Basically the boat has a lot of dents that need to be knocked out,possibly with a jack which will require the lining materials to be removed first.
Would suit someone with simple welding skills. I found a couple of windows the other day that are included in the sale that may be of use (see photos)
This will really make a fantastic little boat once completed. I was hoping to complete the project, but I just don’t have the time as I have another boat I’m working on.
It has been well designed and built. A cheap way to get a narrowboat/barge. or it would make a great work /tug boat
An engine for this boat would not need to be very large and would be quite economical to purchase. I may have a suitable engine available by seperate negotiation that came out of another boat (3 cylinder vetus mitsubishi)
Obviously sold as seen. Please check photos carefully as what you see is what you get.
So to sum up a great opportunity to purchase a new damaged narrowboat/barge shell. Grab a bargain
Cash on collection or bank transfer, pleaseLocated near Sevenoaks, Kent Item must be collected. You will need a flatbed lorry with a hiab that will lift 3.5 ton. The lorry can get alongside, approximately 3ft from it. You would not necessarily need to employ a marine transport company as it has a flat bottom so just a simple flatbed lorry would do. I can possibly arrange this if it not travelling too far at cost.Contact required within 24 hours of winning bid. If you have any questions please do not hesitate to contact me.Thanks for viewing
Please note there is no buy it now. The highest bidder at the end of the auction will win the item
Hi, Thanks for all your interest. I think it’s about 5mm on the sides.may be thicker on the bottom but dificult to tell . The roof is dented and the right-hand side looking from the rear has some dents in the middle around the water line but not too bad. They should knock out with a bit of heat. There is some damage around 2 of the windows. I would just put in larger windows such as the ones included in the sale but probably buy another 2 to match and replace the back doors and hatch and your back to where it was before it got damaged. The main hull integrity seems to be ok basically a big hammer and a bit of heat would probably solve a lot of it. Hope this helps, Thanks TIM
