59/60ft narrowboat for restoration or AirBnB Glamping project! 99p starting price!
Currently located on the Leeds & Liverpool canal Nr Preston.
Poor “Andrew” is in need of someone to do him proud and give him a new lease of life!
The narrowboat has had a recent survey by a 3rd party. I do not have the details, but suffice to say it would need replating/overplating to pass a survey.
Survey is available from the 3rd Party at cost if you are interested.
The boat is heavily pitted and would need overplating or over spraying with polyurea…both costly depending on the amount to be plated or sprayed. Hence idea as an out of water project.
Video shows condition of Hull when it was taken out for Survey. the video was taken a few days after survey and has begun to rust all over due to blacking degradation. So hard to see the actual pitting. Other pics of the pitting I have managed to find when it was last blacked, 4 years ago.
Built in the 90’s I believe, by a local builder named Andy (hence the name of the boat Andrew).. but not much history on it. It was brought to it current location bank in the 90’s and has remained ther ever since.
I had previously planned to transport the Narrowboat to land to work on, and have had ideas as using as a Glamping/AirBnB vessel. But could not acquire space/land to do so. So offering this opportunity for someone who might be able to take it further.
This could be a great project for someone. Creating a space for holiday makers to spend time on the water, while not being on the water!
Current & Available Mooring
Moored in a private boat yard
Directly next to slip for ease of access when booking time out of water. Potential of overplating in stages if wish to restore gradually.
Utilise boatyard services if required. Boat yard can do shot blast, welding, overplating etc.
Low mooring fee £150pm
Electric hookup for power tools lighting etc.
59/60ft in length 6ft wide
Great Headroom. Taller than usual narrowboats. Approx 2m cabin head height. After flooring and insulation fitted.
Engine runs,…brand new fuel injector recently fitted.
Needs additional work to add control/fuel lines.
I am not sure of the engine make, Its Chinese and was able to find a replacement fuel injector for it.
Engine was originally in centre of boat but has been moved to the rear, being more practical. Prop and shaft reconnected and working. Old doors have been welded closed to relocate in better position to suit new owner.
Engine power would still be useful for a self contained glamping project, able to charge up batteries, provide heating etc and used along side solar panels (not included)
Windows in the renders have been made but not complete or fitted…double glazed. These are available with the boat if so wish.
Small wood burner, needs a clean up, and restored a little.
A Model of the boat is available in sketchup…you can see visuals (renders) of the boat’s potential in the main listing photos!
Use model to plan your designs, inside and out!
Sketchup is an easy to use modelling software. Great for project planning.
I am about a 7-8 hour round trip away from the boat. So wont be able to arrange any viewings. Although if you are local I may be able to arrange something in my absence.
Otherwise this listing is sold as seen, ive tried to give as much info a possible, but feel free to ask if there is anything you want to know.
Happy bidding and good luck!
