Hi there, welcome to the sale of my Narrowboat – Kamelya Kamelya is a 42ft all steel cruiser stern built in the late 70’s. I bought the boat in London 2/3 years ago and sailed her along the Thames and up the Grand Union back to Rugby. Back then she was scarcely thin in places so she spent the majority of 2019 and first few months of this year out the water having a full overplate done by the very well regarded Tim Carter (near weedon) at a cost of nearly £10,000. Whilst out the water and over many weekends my friends and I sanded her down and painted her with good quality oil based boat paint. Primer was used where we had to go back to bare metal and everything was under coated so it should last fairly well, it is a DIY job so by no means perfect but perfectly presentable! I have a couple of tins of blue and black left should you need to touch up areas in the future.A full hull survey and blacking was also conducted at this time and she has just passed her 4 year BSS so safety wise she is good for many years to come. Tim reckons the hull will be good for another 20-30 years (with blacking every 5 years) I’ve no doubt forgotten things but here is the spec;Bulletproof Lister SR2 (just had an oil change and so has the gearbox)4 new anodesHonda generator Gas stove/oven + cutlery, pots, plates, pans etcStainless sinkSolid fuel stovePorcelain pump out toilet ShowerElectric immersion heater (240v so you will need the generator running or shore power)12v lighting throughout 240v sockets throughout240v fridge (I personally use a 12v coolbox fridge… not included)Several wall mounted 240v electric radiators Small double bed to the sternL shaped sofa to the bow which converts to a double bedFold out table with chairs inside, an outdoor one is also included but is tatty and could do with replacing/sandingQuality Whale water and bilge pumps2 year old Stainless steel 500l water tank in the bowTwo 12v batteries, one was new this yearI have two 12v solar panels and the charge controller which cost me £400, these aren’t yet fitted but can be included if I get a good price. Now there are a few bits that could do with tidying up, but it’s priced accordingly. Just cosmetic things like the blinds need replacing and a couple of the interior walls could do with a lick of paint. The doors do too although the front ones are a bit rotten so I would personally just replace. However the difficult / expensive work has all been done so it’s all the sort of things you can do as you go. Providing I get time I will sand/paint the rear control panel before any viewings. I will sad to see her go, especially after all the work we’ve put into it, but I am buying my first house so need the money for a deposit. Please feel free to contact me on 07899963669 or via Ebay.
