Drunken Sailor is a beautiful 33ft Narrowboat studio. To maximise the light and airy living space, an additional “wheelhouse-like” cabin has been built over the stern, glazed with opening patio doors on each side. It’s a great place for dining, or to watch the ducks from.The main cabin has ply-lined walls with built-in shelves, and a boarded ceiling, both of which are ‘super insulated’ with celotex and rockwool. She is fitted with a brand new carpet over new flooring, there’s is a concrete pad for a stove, (beneath carpet) and a capped off outlet for a stove flue on the roof. The curved ceiling is lined with pine tongue and groove, and fitted with 8 well positioned, individually switched LED spotlights, which are run off a leisure battery. There are four generous polycabonate side windows with louvre tops and 4 portholes, which flood the cabin with light. The front window is a wide, removable hopper of safety glass, lifting out to give access to the bow, and a through-flow of air. There is a gas locker in the bow, with exterior hatch cover. (No gas on board at present). There
is a shore power cable in, servicing the 240 volt wall sockets. There’s
a water intake hose, ready to plumb to a sink should you want.She
has an all-steel hull, cabin topsides (except ply front panel) and
roof, repainted this year with high quality Johnson’s paint. The boat was built in ’94, has been checked with ultrasound when she last out of the water (January 2016); all readings were over 5 mm. At the same time 4 new anodes were fitted, and 3 coats of bitumen applied. She has been kept in fresh water without being hooked up to mains (so no galvanic corrosion).The
engine was removed by previous liveaboard owners to free up space, though the rudder, stern gear, prop and shaft/engine bearers/skin tanks etc are all
still in situ, should an engine be
reinstated. Alternatively, an outboard engine on a bracket would tick all the boxes! Currently does not require BSS as no engine/gas.We bought her originally to do AirBnB, but plans changed. She has made a fantastic studio/office, and would also make a great live-aboard again, with a small amount of fitting. She’s a really great opportunity for AirBnB too. We have various items such as a brand new macerating toilet, brand new flat panel electric radiators, brand new shower tray and waste, stainless steel boat sink etc which can be included. The flat steel roof offers great potential for solar panels.Feel free to call to view on +447792795684.The boat is based in York. There is the possibility of a serviced marina mooring for her nearby; you’d be responsible for arranging this, though we can advise. Otherwise, transport can easily be arranged to anywhere in the U.K. (We can recommend boat transport co.s or get you a quote).Do call to arrange a viewing and please only bid if you intend to buy.
