A rare opportunity to purchase a narrowboat with a full width king sized bed.Having cruised much of the midlands and Southern network it’s now time to pass on my much loved boat to a new owner. Extensively refurbished over the last 2 years the boat offers versatile accommodation that would suit both live aboard or general cruising.Constructed in 2002 by SW Steelcraft renowned for building robust boats Being an ex hire fleet the boat has been scrupulously maintained having benefited with the installation of a new engine and gearbox during her life. (2011)She can accommodate 5, comprising of a full width king size at the bow, a 3’ single amidships and a double dinette at the stern. The layout is as follows:-Below the cruiser stern is a Beta BV1505 coupled to a PRM150 gearbox, a new propeller and tiller seal/ bearing fitted in 2019. 4 new leisure batteries fitted September 2022, the engine and mechanical systems have been regularly maintained and serviced. There are additional gauges fitted to a bespoke brass control panel indicating water temperature, oil pressure, twin volt meters and effluent tank level.Entering from the stern to the left is a wet cruising locker, to the right a cupboard that houses the electrical isolation switches, a flat screen tv and radio. Below is a high quality heavy duty inverter. Moving forward is the dinette area, all soft furnishing covers and curtains have been replaced in 2020. Again moving forward is the kitchen comprising of a gas cooker, fridge microwave and plenty of useful storage with a variety of cupboards. Leading on from the kitchen there is a full height storage cupboard and a lounge area comprising of a fitted sofa bed with 3 large storage cupboards beneath. Opposite is a multi fuel stove installed in 2019. The lounge area moves onto the toilet hip bath shower and vanity unit and sink,(refurbished April 2023). Finally we reach the master bedroom with wardrobe, small desk area, full width king sized bed with under bed storage.Heating is supplied via an espacher diesel heater complemented by a 5kw multi fuel stove. A new calorifier was installed in 2019. The boat also benefits from high quality water resistant laminate flooring both very durable and easy to clean. The boat was painted by myself in 2021 and was blacked in 2022 with 6x large anodes giving maximum hull protection. The 2 x 150w solar panels were purchased in 2022 giving an additional power source to keep the batteries fully charged. BSS. Certified until 28/02/2026.All the decking and top of the gas locker have just been with new 18mm phenolic board.This item is advertised elsewhere so I may end the sale/ remove the ad early.
