Skylark is a beautiful widebeam narrowboat, built to order by Cuttwater Boats, Chesterfield, in 2013, then fitted out professionally by Forton Boat Fitters, Chorley, and owned by the same family ever since.She is a reverse layout, two-bedroom, cruiser stern ideally laid out for sociable cruising or residential use.At 10’6″, this boat feels far more spacious than a narrowboat, but is manageable when cruising canals and working locks, and avoids the largest of the proposed C&RT license increases. From next year, you would pay only 10% more than a narrowboat, for a huge increase in usable space.High-spec equipment, good insulation and two heat sources make the boat comfortable for living all year round, with the covered cratch and large open rear deck providing the perfect space to relax in summer.Professionally blacked at Trevithicks Boat Builders, Nottingham, in July 2019, with minimal cruising since. At that time, a new stern gland and stern tube were fitted, and engine alignment adjusted. Four new anodes were also fitted.The boat has been meticulously maintained and is in fantastic condition throughout. It is currently moored at Nottingham Castle Marina and available for viewings via prior arrangement.Alternatively, contact me for a link to a 360-degree virtual reality tour!AccommodationOpen plan living area with kitchen at the rear, making it very sociable whilst cruising.The kitchen has a four-burner hob, high-level separate oven and grill, space for a washing machine (inclusion negotiable), breakfast bar, and lots of storage.The living area has free-standing furniture, Cello 27″ 12V TV (inclusion negotiable) and a 5kW Morso Multifuel Stove.The bathroom has a large 900×750 shower, Thetford C200 cassette toilet (two cassettes) and a sink with storage underneath.
