‘Lorna Doone” is a beautiful 55′ traditional stern narrowboat, built in 2009 by M &P Steelcraft, currently moored in Hilperton, Wilshire. She has been my dream boat but sadly it is time to move on. She makes a great live aboard, comfortable with plenty of storage or would make a great no fuss holiday boat. She is well equipped for off grid living. The boat is light and airy and has a great sense of space. You enter the boat into the lounge, with skylight and Morso burner, shelves and wooden flooring throughout. The galley kitchen has plenty of worktop space and storage and a 4 ring gas hob and oven, a new LEC 12v fridge with freezer drawer as well as a Belfast sink and two hatches so you can cook and enjoy being on the canal. The bathroom has a full height shower, sink and a Thetford toilet, with spare cassette. The bedroom has a fitted double bed with storage and hanging space with another fully opening hatch.If you have any further questions or would like to see more photos or arrange a viewing, please don’t hesitate to get in touch.Further details: The engine is a Shanks 04-40 4 cylinder c40hp.The hull was last blacked in 2016 and ideally needs doing in the short/mid term. I have her booked in for July and can negotiate if she sells before and the location isn’t convenient. I had the boat surveyed in summer of 2017 when she was last out of the water. On the bow there is a gas locker with space for two gas cylinders and a very large water tank. There are fitted shelves and if wanted I will leave a two seater sofa. The Morso burner has a back boiler to feed a radiator near the bedroom for extra warmth. There is a skylight and portholes for light, 12v ceiling lights and plugs with USB ports. The spacious and galley fitted galley/kitchen is fitted with a 4 gas hob and oven. There is a good amount of worktop space and butchers block which is great extra storage. There is a Belfast sink and two fully opening hatches so you can enjoy the canal whilst washing up. The LEC 12v fridge is around 8 months old and has a freezer drawer. Hot water is provided by a gas heater, so you can enjoy instant hot water. A corridor leads through to the bathroom with sliding door and porthole. There are two solar panels mounted on the roof and a Victron 240v convertor. The batteries have been replaced recently to 4 new Crown 6v batteries.Three 8A powder fire extinguishers and a fire blanket. Fire alarm and two carbon-monoxide alarms.Current BSS valid until 30/04/2022.***This is being advertised elsewhere so this listing may be closed at anytime.***
