to the sale of my 50ft narrowboat Tickety Boo. She was used as a live aboard by
the previous owner who then left her locked up for 2 years; as such, she needed
recommissioning. She has been decorated, her engine has undergone a rewire /
service and she has 4 new batteries. She is moored near Ashton Under Lyne,
Manchester and will make a great boat for cruising or living on.

External – She is a lovely cruiser
stern craft, she has 4 opening windows on each side and portholes in the centre.
Internal – Enter the bedroom from
the stern and you will find a very bright and comfortable sleeping area with
wardrobe and under-bed storage area. A new mattress will be bought prior to
sale. Enter a corridor and the bathroom is on your left, this has a cassette toilet
with plumbed flush, a small hand basin and a walk in shower. The kitchen is
next which is in gloss grey with a white tile work surface, a gas cooker and a
12v fridge. The lounge is in the bow, a multi-fuel fire keeps the cabin lovely
and warm and is in good condition. A sofa bed will be included in the sale
along with the television which is wall mounted.
Engine is an Isuzu which are proven for
their reliability. As mentioned, the previous owner used the boat as a
live-aboard and was connected to shoreline power, as such, the engine was not
run for a long period. As part of the recommissioning, we had the alternator and
starter motor refurbished (12 month warranty), engine rewire, 4 new batteries
(1 starter and 3 leisure) and it sounds great.
Electrics are a combination of 12v
lighting and power sockets (tele and lighting) along with an electrical hook up
connection in the stern. Solar panels are fitted but not currently generating
power, I will try and get this resolved but I think it needs a new controller
(cheap to fix).
Gas – The locker is located in the stern and there is
room for 2 x 13kg bottles. These are used to supply the cooker and the boiler
which has not been tested and appears to need replacing / repairing.
Unfortunately there is no mooring available; however, Marinas are close by
which may have availability.
Current Price: £25000.00
