Topsy is a 1984, 32ft Springer style, four berth cruiser stern narrowboat. She has a BSS licence until 2022 which can be provided. She was found by her previous owner on the Kennet and Avon in 2017, always been on the river, and she was her lovely home for the past 18 months up until we bought her this summer. She was kept in the Saul Junction Marina with a galvanic isolator to protect her hull. We bought her with a plan to move her down to London which we did this summer, and had an amazing journey, but have decided now that we have fallen in love with the water and the lifestyle, that we want a bigger boat. She is in amazing shape if you ask any other canal boat owners, as for this type of boat she is in excellent condition and recently repainted inside and outside, and given an update. The previous owner said she didn’t get her surveyed as when she was taken out of the water, her anodes were in fabulous condition. She’s ideal for a single person or couple and recently painted her throughout to lighten up her space. She has a fantastic Mitsubishi K2 engine with a recently refurbished gear box, new filter, cleaned diesel line, new 3000 battery, 50 litre fuel tank and 30 litre water tank. She’s just had a week going across the Grand Union Canal, and back into London. All her vitals (oil, water, etc) have been checked and she’s running like a dream. Her beam (width) is 6’ 10”, and she has a 6’ head height. She has 12v electrics as well as 240v electric hook up, two leisure and one starter battery. Her alternator has just be checked, along with an engine checkup and tuneup this summer.The dinette converts to a small 4ft double bed, ideal if you get an unexpected overnight visitor! The kitchen has ample cupboard space and drawers, an Isotherm 12v fridge with small freezer compartment, and a Flavel gas cooker with grill and double hob. The gas boiler is a Morco and works well. There is a cassette toilet and lovely big butler sink in the ‘bathless’ room, big enough to wash hair in…She has a Villager Multifuel stove and chimney installed, which works **very** well!! You can burn wood or coal. Comes with the fireplace tools.The salon seats are built in, have good under seat storage, and convert into a spacious bed which is the width of the boat (loosely a king sized bed and fits a 6ft tall man).The bow has two deep storage lockers and the water tank.Leaving onboard small television, some plates/glasses/cutlery, curtains.I’ve photographed her to the best of my ability, however if you would like to view before the auction ends, please contact me. You are bidding to buy, not fender kick. She is advertised elsewhere so reserve the right to end this auction early. Please see ‘other notes’, she’s based on the London Regents Canal.
