I was thrilled to recently become the owner of this lovely boat, after the previous owner had loved and carefully looked after her the past 10 years. Unfortunately life has decided to throw me a curve ball and I am forced to put the boat back on the market – which I’m very disappointed about.Here is the original listing from last month:’Murmansk is one of London’s continuously cruising boats and so does not have a mooring or any mooring fees. The 2 best things about this boat are her new engine and her hull. Ceilings are over 6ft and she is all steel, so absolutely no leaks ever. (old wood or fibreglass roofs often leak). She has a FANTASTIC survey from Nov 2018 which I’m happy to share with you.She was fully blacked 9 months ago. (Canal boats need to be blacked every 2-3 yrs). Boat safety certificate issued Aug 2019. (BSC is legal requirement and lasts 4 yrs). She was built with 5mil steel and her hull is in great shape per survey. She has had her entire water line over-plated for extra protection, so she’s 7-10mil where it counts. She’s fitted with an EXCELLENT newly re-conditioned Lister SR2 engine with all new bits: hoses, belts, filters, etc. (Listers are mechanics preference and easy to get parts for). Ive been a London boater since 2005 so know all of the boat mechanics in London. This engine was supplied and fitted by Wood Hull Heward whose reputation is outstanding. Murmansk’s interior is stunning, with a beautiful wooden floor recently installed and a spacious shower and bathroom. She’s got an easy no fuss cassette toilet (so much better than smelly pump outs!) and tons of great storage. There’s a double bed as well as sofa from Dwell which opens out to another double bed, so can she sleep up to 4. She is fully insulated and gets very warm in winter, heated via coal and wood burning stove.’She is truly a great cosy little boat and very easy to handle – so an ideal home for a new starter (happy to give a few driving lessons and pick the phone to questions for any ‘new’ buyers). I’ve dropped the asking price as I need to make a quick sale (and happy to have a tiny bit more wiggle room due to time constraints) – so for serious enquiries please just message me at: 07534286219.
