Narrowboat Phaethon – 63 foot (19.40 metre) Aluminium hull and coachroof narrowboat built in 2005 by Marine Technologies Ltd in Blaenavon, South Wales.She is diesel electric – CRT offer a 25% discount on licence fee’s for craft that are powered by an electric motor. This craft qualifies for that. Dawn Class – Design category D – Inland waterways. Index number 512324.Hull specification = Official number GB-PJH-A0001K405. The advantages of Aluminium are vast. You don’t get corrosion in the way you do with steel. It is however, very expensive to build a boat in Aluminium. I have the original receipt for part of the build of this vessel and it totals £211,500. Semi-traditional with a josher style bow.HFL Mini 4 diesel generator – This is a 4 cylinder Mitsibushi engine. It is built into an acoustic box and has a hospital type exhaust silencer on it. It has a separate engine start battery and isolation switch. Diesel is fed from a plastic diesel tank. The generator drives an inverter that converts the power up to 48 volts. This in turn drives an electric motor that powers the vessel through the water. The generator also gives power (240-volt) to the entire accommodation area. There are four 200 amp-hour Sonnenschein batteries forming the house (leisure) battery bank. They were new in 2020Two inverter chargers. They are Victron Energy Phoenix MultiPlus 12 volt 2000 watt 100 amp. One works perfectly and the vessel functions fine with it. There is a second unit on board but it has a fault. I can give you the name and address of the company that service/repair them. They have been wired together to form one inverter giving 4000 watts effectively. An isolation transformer for the 240/12-volt earth control. I removed this from the vessel when I first bought her because it wasn’t working properly. It needs to go to the service agent to be re-built. An automatic electronic ‘O’ switch selects where the power source (240-volts) comes from. Currently working but not fully wired. A Vetus 55 KGF bow thruster fitted into a 150 mm tunnel. It works fine. A washing machine.An electric toilet.She has no cooking facilities. As she is all electric and has a good size generator and inverter on board it would make sense for the new owner to fit electric cooking appliances. She needs work to sort out the inside of her. She has suffered neglect in the past. See the photo’s that I have included. She moves very well and hull and deck, coachroof etc wise is good. The weed hatch in the aft end needs to be extended up in order to make it usable. Side hatch doors etc need work. This should be relatively easy and I can explain how to go about doing that to whoever buys her. The vessel is located in Saul Junction, Frampton-on-Severn, Gloucestershire. If you are genuinely interested then come and have a look at her. She has the potential to make a fantastic liveaboard! You are welcome to employ another surveyor if you wish. Contact me before booking anything.If you would like to talk to me about her then either message me through ebay or you can find me via Google, ‘Christopher Berry Marine Surveyor’ will find me. I have tried to be as honest as possible. She is also being advertised elsewhere, all the usual places, facebook etc..
