For sale is this unique narrowboat built by Liverpool boats in 2007, fitted out in Oak (solid and wood veneer) and having unique artwork by artists James McCarthy and Ruta.This boat attracts attention wherever it goes and I have had people recognise it from as far away as Bristol. The work was done on commission for a previous owner, who came into an inheritance. Not everybody wants to have a boat that has passers by asking questions and if a plain boat is your preference – there are plenty out there at a similar price.The boat is generally in good order inside and out but is 13 years old and will require some maintenance. Safety inspection brought up no major issues and the minor ones (gas cylinder pipes & secure fixing of one battery) have been attended to and the certificate now runs to September 2024. The survey came with a recommendation for reblacking and some attention to the propellor and steering in the next six months to a year. The boat starts runs and steers well but it would probably make sense to have these attended to when next in dry dock. The engine is sound as is the gearbox, which has recently been overhauled (all new internals – so effectively a new and updated box). People who have visited are generally pleased with the interior. The bed is luxurious. The bathroom has a proper bath. In the galley area both the hob and the grill/oven have recently been replaced.The boat is set up for using mains electricity from a hook up but i have been using 12 volt (runs the refrigerator) and usb ports (for phones etcetera) The bank of leisure batteries combined with the inverter provide 240v to all the sockets and high energy appliances such as hoovers and power tools can be run from battery power.Accommodation is: one master bedroom with double bedbathroomLong living area with multifuel stove (also heats radiator in bedroom), sofa-bed, four seater dining area (can be converted to double bed), galley area with cooker,hob,sink and refrigerator.Come and have a look if possible after lockdown. I can also send more photos if required.The boat safety inspector though the boat was worth £50,000. I am letting it go for £47000
