to the sale of my 60ft narrowboat “Emma Rose “(my granddaughters name). She was
formerly called “Snoopy” and used as a live aboard by the previous owner for 4
years. She has been partially decorated and she has 3 recent leisure batteries.
She is moored near Ashton Under Lyne, Manchester and will make a great boat for
cruising or living on. We are only selling due to the purchase of a newer,
slightly smaller boat.

Engine 1.8 BMC
Berth 6 / 8 (1x Fixed Double, 2 x fixed singles, 2 hammocks

Last Surveyed August 2018
External – She is a lovely traditional
stern craft, she has 5 opening windows on each side and portholes to the rear. There
is also a side hatch on one side. She has a cratch cover over the bow which
makes a lovely seating area. I was informed she was blacked three years ago so
would need doing again soon (Portland Marina is 10 minutes sail away). I had
her surveyed in August 2018 and her hull readings were great, the survey is
available on request.
Internal – Enter the engine bay from
the stern (underfloor engine) and this then leads you into the bedroom with 2
single beds and 2 hammocks (one requires a new pole). You will find a very
comfortable sleeping area with underbed storage areas. Going forward, along the
corridor which runs along the Port side you will come to the shower and then to
the bathroom with a sink and Thetford cassette toilet (bathroom could do with
tidying). Continuing forward you enter
the main bedroom with fixed double bed, wardrobe and underbed storage. The
kitchen is next which is in country white with an oak worktop, a gas cooker and
a 240v fridge. The lounge is in the bow, a Morso Squirrel multifuel fire keeps
the cabin lovely and warm although it could do with repair / replacement. A Pullman
sofa bed will be included in the sale along with a bracket for a wall mounted
Engine is a 1.8 BMC which are proven
for their reliability. The engine coolant runs through a calorifier which
provides hot water for the boat.
Electrics are a combination of 12v
lighting along with an electrical hook up connection in the stern providing
Gas – The locker is located in the bow and there is
room for 4 x 13kg bottles. These are used to supply the cooker.
Heating – An Alde central heating system is fitted but
is currently isolated from the gas and electrics. The previous owner told me it
needed a thermocouple but they found it expensive to run so had it isolated.
They used portable heaters whilst connected to shore and the muti-fuel heater
was sufficient when on trips away. I will also supply a portable gas heater
with 2 full bottles as part of the sale.
Safety – 3 x fire extinguishers, smoke detector, CO
detector and a new boat safety certificate covering the boat until 2023.
Mooring – The mooring is not transferable; she could
be left for a short time but the mooring is required for my new boat.
