“55ft live-aboard Narrowboat £38,000
The Old Water Rat has been my home here in the U.K. But it is now time to return to Australia.
With a generous Cruiser Stern you can take your friends for a Sunday trip down the river in comfort. The galley is at the rear of the boat and fitted with glass topped 4 burner hob and under counter oven. A stainless steel sink with extra half sink plus a 12volt compressor fridge complete the facility with multiple high and low level oak cupboards.
A two seater breakfast bar comes next followed by the saloon area with dual fuel stove for winter comfort.
Within the lounge is a functional spare bed that neatly folds away into the gunwales and next to which is a fold away oak desk for your laptop or just for writing letters. Bathroom is next with a glass fronted shower, ceramic wash basin and Thetford cassette W.C. Hot water comes from a large well insulated tank that is heated by the engine during cruising or by immersion when on shore power.
The bedroom is in the bow with a double bed plus storage under, a wardrobe and eight separate drawers for clothing. There is a double glazed door leading onto the foredeck. The fresh water tank in the bow is of unknown capacity but lasts me several weeks.
The boat is well insulated and was last surveyed in 2015. Powered by a Mitsubishi/Thorneycroft diesel with three 110a/h house batteries that were replaced last year. Alternator and fuel pump were also replaced at that time. There is a small inverter for running t.v’s and other appliances. I have fitted a Victron intelligent Battery Monitor with blue-tooth to the cellphone, a smart battery charge by Ctek and a Victron solar regulator to take care of the four solar panels.
I will be leaving crockery etc, Freesat box and Dish, and many other items that will facilitate instant occupation.
For your privacy the windows are all tinted with reflective film and all have blinds for night time. This boat has been fun for me and I have navigated both the Thames and several canals single handed. Boat safety certificate is not due until July 2019. Handy to M4 and A40 I am on a marina berth. Transfer of mooring would be subject to management approval.
