We are selling Bathwick Maiden- our home for the last three and half years. It is the perfect boat for people wanting to live on the canals. It had plenty of room for a couple with lots of clothes, books, kitchen equipment and bikes. 45 foot is best size for getting space in london and navigating easily. £32,000 ONO
It has a great galley with a woodburning stove you can cook your breakfast and dinner on. The stove also provides loads of heat in the winter to quickly get the boat warm and cosy. The kitchen has lots of storage and also has a two ring gas burner.
Cosy bedroom with double size bed going across the entire width of the boat (allowing large mattress to be fitted). The bedroom has two windows and a side hatch for a cool breeze in the summer and for feeding the birds.
Fully functional bathroom with powerful shower, sink, and pump out toilet. Large water tank. Fitted sofa area with a stowaway table for dinners etc.
2 large solar panels providing charge. A 240w inverter (one of the best on the market) to allow you to charge laptops. Super heavy duty Rolls leisure batteries. Large copper calorifier heats large amount of water when the engine is – on enough for hot showers.
Modern engine, great electrics and plumbing. New BSS certificate valid until March 2023. Survey and dry dock last done Feb 2018, with all jobs completed. Secure locking to avoid break ins. Steel doors. Hand rail round boat makes it easy to move round and also provides space for bike locking.
Constructed in 2003. 10mm base plate, 6mm hull, 4mm cabin and roof. Taken out of the water at the beginning of last year four new anodes and blacked.
We used the engine for heating water when we wanted a hot shower (evenings and weekends). The engine also heats one of the radiators. We used the stove for all heat during the winter. It is quick to warm up and very warm when running. There is a boiler installed but would need refurbishment or replacement as it is not in working order.
Because the boat is 45′ and has a good modern engine, it is extremely easy to navigate. Lots of the time you can spin the boat around 180 degrees from the bank with ropes. The length of the boat makes it very suited for London cruising, as it is much easier to find spots to get into at this length. An ideal length for people new to narrowboat cruising.
