See more photos on Apolloduck https://www.apolloduck.com/boat/springer-47-cruiser-stern/608252Panama is a much loved 47ft narrow boat. She is currently moored in Bath on the Kennet and Avon. The kitchen includes a 12-volt chest fridge and a new gas oven, fitted cupboards and an extendable counter, perfect for when you need the extra preparation space. Panama is incredibly bright with natural light as it is fitted with large windows throughout.The bathroom has just been re-painted, it has a cassette toilet and fitted cupboards, mirror and shelf. The shower is heated by a gas boiler. The water pump connected to the tank was replaced at the beginning of this year. The living room has a log burner, which is fitted with a back boiler, this warms up water that travels along pipes in the bathroom to heat a radiator in the bedroom. This system works by convection, so no electricity is needed. She stays very warm in the winter! Unfortunately, the log burner needs some attention as the boiler currently has a small hole and the flue has a leak. The bedroom is fitted with a foam mattress which sits on a wooden frame divided into easily accessible cupboards along the front and a huge storage area at the back, accessible through panels on the top. The bedroom is fitted with custom wardrobe and cupboards, there is ample storage space. The bedroom doors open on to the large back deck, or stern. This space is perfect for BBQ’s in the summer or to just sit outside of an evening with a bottle of wine. The stern has recently been fitted with a bespoke fiberglass roof to keep rainwater out of the engine bay, and to provide a bit of shade! It is the perfect frame to attach a catch cover to. The front of the boat has also recently been fitted with custom high-quality marine plywood, buffalo boards, these from a large bench seat as well as outdoor storage. The back deck was also custom fitted with buffalo boards last year, and a hatch was created to give easy access to the engine bay. We had a diesel engineer out to work on the Lister engine at the beginning of this year, it runs very well and starts ever time! There is plenty of power, with 1 starter battery and 4 leisure batteries! All under two years old. The batteries are charged by a new 560w solar panel system installed at the beginning of this year, and power is supplied to the boat through an inverter. All this ensures that the boat will never run out of power to run the fridge, and all your devises, even in the depths of winter!The solar panels were professionally installed by a narrow boat electrician and are ‘new A grade’ and MCS approved. The run though a DC DIN Mount Breaker to a fantastic MPPT charge Controller (EPever XTRA 4215N, 150VOC PV) that lets you see exactly how much charge you are getting from the sun and the status of your batteries. The batteries are also fitted with a separate charge indicator. Panama has a full boat safety licence until 2020, and it is expected to pass without issue. We have been living on Panama for the past two years, continuously cruising along the Kennet and Avon. We have had a magical time living on this boat and are only selling as we have found a wide beam in the area. The boat is priced very reasonably because since we have moved onto our new boat an issue has occurred with the shower that means there is a small leak within the boat. Patching the leak and retiling the shower will require a bit of an investment of time and money that we no longer have. The new solar panels and batteries mean that the boat is perfect for a continuous cruiser, however we if you are planning to move onto a marina we would be able to remove the panels and sell the boat for a reduced price. Panama is located in Bath. Please message if you would like any more info.Thanks.
