A really nice little boat ideal as a live aboard for a single person or very close couple or as a family adventure boat. It’s well laid out interior has everything you need for your day to day.The stove is multi fuel, coal is the most convenient in my opinion due to low storage and no processing, even the small logs you buy are a squeeze to get in an a bag doesn’t last that long. It keeps the boat perfectly warm and will last overnight if you do it right. The table is small but functional and has one fixed and one folding chair for convenience. Being under the window it makes a nice spot to eat. The shelves next to it are ideal for books etc. The kitchen side has plenty of storage, a gas oven and twin gas hob. All in good working order.The hobs will warm the boat up if you don’t have time to light a fire. The gas boiler provides hot water via the pump from the tank, it’s all automatic. The sink is a large butler type, adequate for washing as there is currently no shower on board. Personally I didn’t miss it. Everything is powered from a leisure battery that is charged from a solar panel. There are push lights throughout, can be turned on individually or all by the main switch.The bed area currently has a foam mattress suitable for a single person just over 6 feet tall. The head room in the boat is the same, you fine at 6’2 but any more and you might be stooping. There is storage to the side and under the bed.The toilet is a chemical one at the moment, you could maybe squeeze a shower in there but you’d lose the toilet I think and I know what I’d rather have. A well maintained composting toilet would be the ideal for a constant cruiser but chemical is fine if you regularly moor.Merlin Hull built 1976 by Hancock and Lane LtdLength 8.03mBreadth 2.08mEngine is air cooled 2 cylinder Lister sr2, has always run without fault for me and is fairly simple.
