Classic, traditional build from PARKER NORTON CANES DOCKS, this well presented 45ft narrow boat will make a great holiday boat or live aboard as it has been for 2 years.
Spacious, open plan with a full size double bed, living aboard is very comfortable for a couple and this can be can be set up as a relaxing lounge area when cruising. If you’re after holidays with the family, the additional pull-out arm chairs ensure everyone is comfortable and rested.
I’ve had extensive work done on the boat including new wardrobe with 3 railings, new built in shelving and storage areas to ensure maximum space for storage and un-cramped living. The ikea “small room” shelving, hanging box storage and floating book shelves have been a great addition to the boat and will remain on-board for the new owner if they so wish.
The recent work also includes freshly painted throughout, a fully tiled washroom with full size shower, small wash basin and electric flush Thetford toilet with 2 cassettes. There is a new shower pump and the shower has also been re-plumbed. There is plenty of ikea shelving and storage in the bathroom and it’s light and airy.
The full size LPG converted gas oven is only 2 years old works brilliantly. There is a new fridge/ freezer and plenty of storage in the kitchen with floating shelving and a separate movable butcher’s block unit for work space area.
The main inside structure is original and looks fantastic in deep mahogany REAL wood planking throughout and pranapine planking on the ceiling which makes for a very snug and warm boat. The very cute (anchor theme) and effective multi fuel stove is in the middle of the boat which has kept me toasty warm through winters. Due to its clever location, it rapidly warms the boat and spreads the heat evenly. I have had blackout / thermal cream curtains made which are brilliant for keeping the heat and cooling the boat.
When updating the boat, the 12 volt electrics were re-done and new lighting put on the boat including LED bulbs which are very low on using battery power. The boat also includes a 1200 watt Victron inverter which runs the 240 volt on board, the pull out flat screen TV and the built in stereo
There is one starter battery and 3 leisure batteries,all of which are less than a year old. There is also two spare leisure batteries in case of emergency that are fully charged and less than 2 years old.
The batteries are kept in tip top form with a 100 watt solar panel system and a fitted Numark shore power charger which is less than 2 years old.
There are 2 gas bottle lockers at the front (bow) of the boat which supplies the new cooker and the Morco instant hot water boiler which gets the water to a very hot temperature and decent pressure for showering.
Boat safety was recently done and isn’t due again until 2021.
There are 2 Carbon Monoxide alarms on board, smoke alarm and also a panic alarm. Last blacked 3 years ago so possibly due at the end of this year which has been reflected in the price.
On my last service the anodes were inspected and I was told it was all looking very well. The engine is a Perkins 4108 which is regularly serviced and had a new drive plate fittedless than 2 years ago so good to go for many years. It’s a very quiet engine and a trusty old diesel that starts in the coldest weather.
A full survey was done a few years ago by the previous owner and showed simple things like no bilge pump,a leaking window, a dead leisure battery and charging systems not working, all have been rectified /replaced accordingly and are working very well.
The design of the boat PARKER NORTON CANES is very desirable as they built “floating tanks” – Solid British steel.
The Hull of the boat has very little pitting for its age and this is highlighted in the survey. She has decades of cruising to do and will suit any family /couple or lone boater.
Traditionally sign painted, she’s a smart Navy blue and grey outside with a Duck egg, cream and grey interior. I will be very sorry to sell her and I hope the new owner/s get as much enjoyment from my lovely boat as I have.
