As you can see the boat has had a lot of expensive custom
made optional extras, it is not your usual traditional style wooden panelled
narrowboat!! It may not be to everyone’s taste but if your looking for that
ultra-modern styled narrowboat this is for you! If you have done your research
you will see that its got all the extras and expensive options, for example some
of the interior finishes like the suede and stainless steel kitchen finishes cost
an me eye watering amount.
I am the second owner of the boat, I purchased the boat
locally from the guy who had it built new, I bought the boat in 2018 with just 700
hours on it.
As you can see the boat has been meticulously maintained,
cared for and loved to the point where every outing has been written down and
logged, I have a file full of receipts and manuals for the boat.
The boat has never been lived on and has only been used for
leisure purposes, it has been on the Lancaster canal since the day it was made,
the Lancaster canal is a quiet lock free canal as a result the boat has never
been bashed around in locks etc as many have.
Everywhere we go in the boat we get lovely comments
regarding its looks, it certainly stands out from the crowd!
My wife and I use the boat most weekends, this sale is a
very reluctant sale- the only reason its for sale is we are going to a wide
I have carefully studied the current narrowboat market and
looked at what is available and to be honest I’m gobsmacked at what people are
asking for old tatty unfinished unloved boats, all of the half decent boats
sell within days! I have spoken to various boat builders regarding pricing for
a new narrowboat built to this same high specification and am informed that on
average you would be close to £145k! with a long long wait time to build!
This is a finished clean, tidy modern professionally built
boat, ready to be used for leisure or comfortably lived on
The boat has just been blacked (JUNE 2021) and will go to its new owner
with a fresh engine service, a full tank of diesel and polish, it is immaculate
throughout and the closest thing you will get to a brand new boat
I have the boat insured for an agreed value of £135k
if you are interested in the boat please only contact me if
you have the funds available now and are ready to buy.
Please contact me via telephone to arrange a viewing (by
appointment only), the boat is located in Preston (Lancashire) in a marina, the
mooring may be available however it would need to be discussed with the marina
If purchasing remotely I can assist with the loading
The marina can lift/ power wash and load the boat for
transportation for around £200
the price is a £79995 firm
Looking at most adverts I feel I have been quite detailed in
my description however I may of missed a few things, rather than email its far
better to pick up the phone if you have any questions 07702509132
