We’re offering for sale our beloved floating home 🙂 This 1996 70ft Traditional Stern Peter Nicholls narrowboat is ready to move into with everything you need for your canal life. It has a BRAND NEW Beta 43 engine, fitted Jan 2021.
Blacked Jan 2021 with full set of new anodes, hull in incredible condition. (Peter Nicholls used boiler steel for his boat building and this is the best apparently!) Hull thickness when built was also higher than average.
Boat Safety valid until 2025 (just passed with flying colours).
From front to back here’s a tour:

Photos: We’re currently in the process of finishing painting the gunwhales black, so they don’t look their best in the photos as they’ve been sanded – apologies! More photos on request, and I will post more when we’ve finished the paintwork. If you’d like to purchase her sooner then we can negotiate on the price with regards painting of course.
Location: Currently continuously cruising (Lockdown restrictions permitting) around the Milton Keynes area, so if you’d like to arrange a viewing we’ll let you know latest location and arrange a viewing. Buyer collects, however we can negotiate help with moving if you’re living further afield.
This boat has been a WONDERFUL home and I’m truly sad to see her go. We hope that whoever buys her will love her as much as we have. Circumstances have changed for us and it’s time to move back on to land after 8 amazing years.
We’ll include everything boat-related that you’ll need such as mooring pins, mooring chains, fire tools, chimney flue brush etc. All personal items in the photos not included, all freestanding furniture negotiable.
Please message me here or call Harriet on 07711 992506 if you’d like more information or to book a viewing. No part exchange, sorry. On other sites.
Thanks for looking!
