Karoo is a lovely, bright, easy to manage and reliable boat. She has been my home for the past 2 years, in which time I’ve taken good care of her and made her ever more comfortable and efficient. She is painted a neutral off-white over tongue-and-groove cladding to make her light and airy even in winter. Cruiser-stern 70’s Springer.She has beautiful handmade hardwood windows which open up like side hatches, (makes such a difference!) allowing a lot of light and air, with handmade safety grates which detach from insideWide gunnelsStrong Key clamp® roof railingsWooden roof deckThornycroft Mitsubishi 3 cylinder engine. Safety (BSS) until 06/2022. 2 BRAND NEW deep cycle leisure batteries and good starter battery220w Solar system with 12v plug and Sterling Inverter for 240 powerLarge solar roof box for storageCratch window and cover – ready to be fittedShe was craned out of the water on April 2017 at Stanstead Abbots and had a hull survey done, welding/plating and was blacked. All the work which was suggested to be done by the hull surveyor was completed in full. All survey info and proof of completed work is available. She is about to have a full engine service and new Rule Mate 500 bilge pump fitted, so will run like a dream. She’s incredibly easy to drive as one person, even in and out of locks, and her size means that you can turn anywhere and find a mooring spot wherever you go! She has also housed myself and my partner for the last 6 months, and is deceptively roomy!
