Have you ever
thought of living on water? Being close to nature, feeding ducks in the
morning, navigating through canals, built almost 200 years ago and now being
part of heritage, during the day and sleeping with nature at night?
Holly Lou is a house
on water, a 37 feet narrowboat – a cozy floating home for either you or couple
The boat is built in
1975 and renovated numerous times since then. Holly Lou has a steel bottom and
a wooden top plated with tin and coloured with green coat.
Holly Lou has a
traditional stern and an engine room in the back.
As you enter through
the stern inside the boat, you pass through a sleeping area that can be made
into two single berths or one double berth. The space is left without
furniture, so that you could fit your taste upon moving in. At the moment there
is a double mattress to sleep in.
Boat has a
comfortable standing height of 6.1 feet from bottom to ceilings inside the
boat, thus most persons could stand without problems.
As you move forward,
there is a bathroom on the left, which has a convenient portable Thetford
toilette, easy to use and empty out, and a lovely romantic bathtub. Water is
heated with a calorfier, which recovers a waste heat and transfers it into
domestic water systems. Waste heat comes from the heated coolant in the engine
cooling system. The calorifier is plumbed into the engine coolant
re-circulation system and uses a series of coils inside the tank to heat a body
of water contained in the main shell of the tank.
The galley is
located in the mid-cabin, including a Vanette cooker and gas hob as well as a
spacious work surface and a sink unit. It has a 12v fridge, though it is used
as a food storage space and is not functioning as a fridge at this moment.
Moving to the front
of the boat, you will find the saloon which holds a cosy living area with a
Clarke log burner on the left and a sitting bed and a storage space on the
At the front you
will have a gas tray, storage place and sitting area with a comfortable cover

place on the boat at this moment, but you can easily connect an inverter to
have electrics on the boat.
is blacked three years ago and hull is inspected by surveyor on 5 Oct 2018.
Results show that boat needs blacking and might need strengthening/plating in
few places – in 40 years boat lost metal thickness from 5mm to 4.2-3.6mm. It
should be good to use for another decade, but for the complete assurance it is
recommended to overplate those few places. Price includes the potential works
