43 Foot all steel narrowboat built in1978 by Peter Nicholls 10/6/4 steel. Following a survey in Sept 2016 (copy available) the sides of the hull were overplated and the hull blacked. New anodes were fitted. The boat has been sailed down the Thames from Limehouse basin to Hoo Marina where it was moored for two years before being sailed back around Grain to Gravesend Marina (with additional power from a temporarily installed outboard). If required, the boat could be sailed (with a competent crew) up river to rejoin the main canal system.
Since buying Eda in April 2015 we have used it as an all round liveabord. She is fully insulated.
Three and a half years later the boat now requires work to restore it to its former glory. The cost of this is reflected in the price.
The boat now requires work with an external repaint. No leaks from windows or anywhere else. The boat is a little tatty looking and requires work to the new owner’s taste but nothing major. Some plumbing will need reconnecting as we were going to swap the position of bathroom and kitchen. Water tank, pump and accumulator all functional. 12vdc led lighting. 240VAC (shore supply) power and breaker, galvanic isolator and landline
socket. 1 x starter and 2 x leisure batteries. Bukh engine and gearbox. Safety rail on stern, grab rail connected to roof. Arrow multi solid fuel fire. Thetford cassette toilet. Fridge. Brand new 2 burner gas hob (will need connection to existing gas pipes). Fire extinguishers and blanket. Kitchen. 50 Ltr Electric 240v mains powered water heater.
Two fixed berths in rear cabin. Two others provided by futon in living area.
Extras could form part of deal. Futon, lifejackets, microwave.
Currently moored at the Embankment Marina Gravesend. One hour by train to Charing Cross. 35 minutes to St Pancras.
Transfer of mooring with the agreement of marina management.
We have loved living aboard EDA which has afforded us cheap accommdation for the last four years. We are however now returning to live in France and therefore no longer need the boat.
