Recently renovated and ready to go.Originally registered in 1989, she began life as a Belgian inland lifeboat. She has some very unique curves and commands a lot of attention. She’s a real stand out beauty and it’s your chance to own her, beat the traffic and enjoy the waterways in style. We’ve owned her and lived aboard for the last 6 months. During that time we’ve done a huge amount of work renovating and restoring her. Now it’s time for us to move on to our next project, and Esmaralda to find her new owner. She’s slightly wider than a narrowboat. With straight up walls that make it much roomier inside. We’ve lived aboard during renovations no problem. But for 2, we need a bit more space. She’d be perfect as a holiday boat or a live aboard for someone with less stuff. She’s got a solid hull. As an ex lifeboat we can assume high quality steel. We purchased her as Corona kicked off so weren’t able to get her surveyed. We had a boat builder relative give it a once over, who agreed she appears solid. I also traced down previous owners to find history and information on the hull. Putting the bits of info together gathered that she was last out, checked and blacked in 2017 and her hull was 8mm all over. She’s got a wooden top which has been stripped back, repaired where needed, painted sealed etc… Should be good for a long time but would require a yearly varnish. She has a Peugeot Indenor 4.9 engine that runs fine. She glides through the water beautifully. – Boat safety certificate until 2022 (will find the exact date) – Boat License until 04/21 – however I pay it monthly which means the buyer would start a fresh.
