38’ steel narrow boat
I bought her about 7
years ago as a project and on dry land, and I re-fitted the interior
and repainted/ blacked the exterior and installed a Lister 2 cylinder
engine. I lived aboard and cruised for some time. A renovation was
begun but never completed, and she has been empty and neglected for
some time now. I don’t have time to complete the work required to
turn her back into a comfy home again. She is a nice manoeuverable
size, and would suit a couple or single person with skills to
complete the work required.
The boat was taken out of the water,
blacked and new anodes in 2013, and the hull was a good thickness then, although I don’t have a copy of the survey anymore, sadly. This work would need to be done as a priority. I don’t know the maker of the boat or the year of manufacture- I bought her as a shell, without paperwork, off a guy in Cheshire.
As for the layout, the bedroom is at the rear
with a walk through bathroom, then kitchen/ sitting room at bow. There is a single fixed berth with
one (potentially 2) berth on the sofa in the sitting area.
sink, bathroom fixtures, thetford cassette toilet, Lister 2 cylinder engine (starts first time and runs beautifully),
solar panel, wood burning stove.
She needs: Re-wiring – all the new
wiring is there, it’s just an unfinished job which needs connecting
The gas connecting.
Again, many of the materials are onboard-there’s a sound has
locker, a boiler and a cooker, but it all needs plumbing
Some of the plumbing is complete, some is not.
I loved this boat and I hope someone else will now too. She is cosy in winter, due to the wood burner, and a perfect size for a single person or couple.
The boat is moored on the Thames near Donnington Bridge in Oxford. Viewings can take place on Friday 26th, Saturday 27th and Sunday 28th March.
Current Price: £7000.00
