I Was on her during the “beast from the east” storm in February and the boat heated up nicely with the very efficient Eberspacher. She is insulated with polystyrene reflecting practice when she was built. No stove installed.
Hot Water SystemHas a hot water system for hot water during the colder months. Ther are three sinks installed, one in Galley and one each in each of the cabins going astern.
Cold Water SystemLarge capacity (not sure of exact capacity but lasts me (/4 weeks continuous liveaboard with Shoreflo water pump. There is a water filer fitted for drinking water.ShowerSpacious hot water shower installed, hot water and good flow drained with a pump. ToiletCurrently, I use the Thetford portable cassette toilet (there are two cassettes, one for use and one spare.) There is a pump out tank installed that is not in use but am sure would not take much to bring back online should the new owner prefer. As the boat is moored next to facilities I never got round to fixing up the pump out tank. There is a refrigerator installed. Shoreline 12v with small freezer compartment. All in all Rosemary is a fantastic spacious 54ft in a great condition ready to go to her next owner with no work needed (with the caveat that it is boat so there is always something to be done) except perhaps an external paint which I have not got round to doing. Newly decorated throughout with carpet lining installed and a fresh coat of paint. New curtains also installed giving a very modern feel. i had planned to change the layout but Change of plans and Relocation forces a reluctant sale. Perfect as a liveaboard, weekender or pied-a-terre.I am happy to arrange transport at cost should a potential buyer which to move Rosemary off the Forth and Clyde Canal. For example it would be around £2k to move Rosemary to south east / London area. (Crane out, haulage, crane in)
