52 ft Trad Style G&J Reeves/Kingsground Narrowboat – with private residential mooring near Oxford.
The boat is moored at Enslow Marina, 10 miles north of Oxford on the Oxford Canal.
The marina offer:
On-site parking, postal address with mail delivery to your boat, the facility to register with the local doctor’s surgery in Islip/register car insurance, mains electric hook up, water tap and toilet pump-out facility – all available on a secure, private site with 24/7 residential access.
Once agreeing the sale with me, a mooring contract must be separately agreed and signed with the marina owner – this is a private rental agreement – I am currently paying £330 per calendar month for mooring on its current linear mooring with storage shed. Electricity is metered and paid monthly. Coal, gas, diesel etc. are available either on-site or from the local passing ‘coal boat’. Engineer and carpenter on site.
Built in 1999 by G&J Reeves, originally fitted out by Kingsground and registered as ‘Pied Piper’.
Bought back by Kingsground in 2016 and re-fitted to an ‘as new’ standard throughout 2016-2017 including:
Stripped and shot blasted in dry dock, hull blacked with two pack epoxy, newly painted with sign writing and name changed to ‘La Petite Querelle’ by Kingsground.
Please see photos of this process (or ask for more).
The interior was extensively re-fitted over this period as follows:
Solid oak flooring.
Oak wall panelling and cherry detailing.
Folding cabin desk/office space (this could be changed to space for a washing machine).
New toilet sink with American oak worktop and shower unit.
New galley sink, American oak worktops, and cupboard doors.
New eye level cooker/grill, 12v fridge (new 2018), microwave, extending clothes rail in cupboard, new curtains throughout.
The boat is fitted with a Beta diesel inboard with low mileage
Mikuni diesel central heating.
Jabsco pump-out toilet (porcelain unit).
3.5KW mains inverter.
Solid fuel stove.
Cabin TV. Hi-Fi system with ceiling speakers.
These were all serviced and tested in 2017.
I bought the boat privately in 2017 and moved onboard in November 2017.
Boat Safety Certificate 02/11/2017 (lasts 4 years).
I have added a Hampton Sofa Bed with blanket box (Sofabed Barn) making it a 2+2 berth and a practical folding table and 2 chairs.
I have kept the original bench seat with storage lockers, cushions and fixed table if the new owner wants to re-fit them.
Other personal items onboard by negotiation please (including: Sony Bravia TV in saloon / pine table galley / de-humidifier / cordless Dyson and charging point / EE 50GB Dongle monthly contract).
