Pipistrelle 2. 50ft 2 / 4 berth all steel narrowboat. 1989
£32,500, may take Motorhome or WHY
We have owned Pipistrelle for 5 years and she has been a
great holiday home and she cruises all day without any issues, she has recently
been painted and had a full engine out overhall, she is ready for the season or
will make a great liveaboard. The only
reason we have decided to sell is that we are not getting any younger and finding
cruising, locking and bridges is no longer the fun it used to be.
So what are you getting, the boat is powered by a 4 cylinder
Mitsubishi M4 engine, marinized by Vetus. This engine was overhauled by Park
Engineering in Malton and has done less than a 100 cruising hours since, the engine
is linked to a PRM gearbox and the keel cooling system means there are no weed traps
needed and the engine and gearbox run quietly and cleanly.
The Boat has one start battery and 2 leisure batteries, there
is space to increase the battery bank and install an inverter to give 240v if
required. The batteries are charged via the engine and 4 x 100w solar panels. Even
in winter the batteries are always fully charged.
Shore Power and hook up lead are installed on the helm deck
giving 240v to power the electrical items such as TV/DVD player microwave and
The Galley (Kitchen) has a full size 4 ring gas cooker with
grill and oven, Microwave oven, Sink with hot and cold running water, the water
heater, the control panel for the boats systems, shelving cupboards and a
Victron Isolator and heavy duty charger, never been needed but the isolator
prevents electrolysis to preserve the hull, there is also a 3 way fridge which
does work but is time it was replaced.

with a TV mounted on the wall and overhead light and porthole window, to the
right are sliding doors that allow plenty of air even on the hottest of
Moving forward again is the head (Bathroom) holding tank
underneath the electric toilet, wardrobe / storage, shower and a handbasin with
Moving forward again into the Salon (lounge) is a storage
cupboard and a cocktail type cabinet above and a built in sofa that converts to
another double bed, I will say here that whilst this boat can sleep 4 you would
need to be “good friends” there is also a easy chair with footstool and a wood
burning stove, on the opposite side there is a Oak built in wall unit with
cupboards and a modern TV/DVD player and lamp.
The boat has a country cottage feel to it will a few pieces of
canalia to decorate it. Forward again are the double doors leading to the foredeck,
with lockers for gas, coal, tools, storage etc, All warps (ropes) and fenders
are included in the sale.
