Rosie is a 62ft Reeves hull narrowboat built in 1997 and fitted out by Milburn Boats.She has been in my family since 2007.She has a beautiful rare solid wood fit out, new bathroom fitted 2020, Clarice Cliff castle and roses on the side and back doors (in need of restoration), one solar panel, three new batteries (April 2023), new 240v fridge, multi fuel stove, disconnected gas central heating (may be possible to reconnect all radiators remain), gas four burner hob, Thetford gas oven with separate grill, a fold down double bed, a static single bed, and a futon frame (cushion required) so has the capability to sleep five.Selling as a project. These items need attention: New inverter required. Side doors are sealed shut and have damage at the bottom due to leak so they will need restoring. Stove needs repainting and ceiling brass ring reattaching. Bed doesn’t bolt shut anymore when folded up. There is some white paint on a panel in the living area that was a trial and error. New cratch and back covers needed. A survey was also done May 2023 which had very good results, all of the maintenance is due but the shell is in excellent condition and of high quality. Advisories are: new anodes required, some puddle welding required, shot blasting (sides now, bottom in 5 years) and blacking needed, coach repaint, engine bay repaint, and a water tank repaint. I will happily send a copy of this report.The Matador engine serviced May 2023.Boat Safety Certificate until 6th July 2024.Sold as a project that will be suitable to live on while working on once a new inverter has been installed.I have lived on her between 2021-2023 and on other occasions since I was 14.Selling due to relocating to the north west for work.Any questions please ask and I will answer to the best of my knowledge. Viewings welcome.Depending on destination/distance I may be able to deliver for an additional fee. Buyer would be responsible for diesel costs, waterway licensing, and insurance.
