I am selling my beloved narrowboat! She’s a 1971 53′ Hancock and Lane boat that I bought in June last year as a project. Since then I’ve spent thousands of pounds and many hours work to make her a cozy and comfortable home. Most of the work has been inside, and the outside needs more work to make her pretty.In the last 11 months I have:Had the foredeck replaced, with a new 500 litre plastic water tank underneath.Fully re-plumbed her in 15mm plastic pipe, starting at that new water tank, all the way back to a new 60 litre calorifier under the bed.Almost completely rewired her, with 400W of solar panels on the roof, and associated MPPT controller. New batteries (3x130Ah). Victron charger for shore line. LED lights throughout. 240V, 12V and USB sockets in the living area and bedroom. Stripped and primed the cabin roof and sides.Fitted a new 12V fridge.Fitted a new composting toilet.And countless other little jobs.From the back door, the layout is, bedroom with fixed double bed masses of storage underneath, toilet/ shower room, kitchen, work space with two desks, living room with bench seats, Morso Squirrel multifuel stove.She is powered by a good old BMC 1.5 diesel engine, with keel / calorifier cooling… there’s plenty of hot water after a couple of hours cruising. The engine has a new alternator, and a new raw water pump for the water cooler PRM gearbox. She will come fully equipped with everything needed to live aboard.. all ropes, pins, planks, etc, including a big 3kW Honda generator, a pair of folding bikes and an electric chainsaw.There are loads of parts aboard.. spares for the engine, further bits for doing her up, I’ve spent loads so you don’t have to!She has 3 years remaining on her Boat Safety Certificate.I’m in the Bradford on Avon area, on the K&A canal… Plenty of places around where you can get her surveyed. With bit more TLC she’ll make a lovely home for the buyer.Matt07546 513730Feel free to call if you have any questions, or want to come and have a look. I’m here most days.She is advertised elsewhere so this listing might vanish with no warning!
