*OFFERS ACCEPTED*Cotswold is a one of a kind, trad stern narrowboat. Powered by a Sabb 2H engine which sits in an engine room towards the stern of the boat. These engines were traditionally used for Norwegian life boats and are referred to in the boating community as ‘bullet proof’. Regular oil and filter changes have been carried out the fuel filter was replaced a few months ago, with a spare on board. Since owning Cotswold, lovingly referred to as ‘the funky water bus’, we refitted the bathroom and relocated the bed to the rear of the boat. This opened up valuable space for a bespoke shelving unit which doubled up as a mini DJ booth and space to chill /practice yoga. In the process of refitting, upgraded insulation was fitted, as well as fresh flooring and tongue and groove walls to separate the engine room from the rest of the boat. At the stern is the boatman’s cabin. This area has a certain charm and now serves as the main berth. A small double bed has been fitted so as not to diminish the traditional nature of the cabin. However, it is easily removable should the new owners want to restore the area to its original status. The cabin has plenty of under bed storage and cupboard space. Extra storage was also added in the form of a decking style roof box. This provides a great space to comfortably sit and enjoy the long summer nights, but valuably stores coal and wood to power the Morso squirrel stove in the winter months. A Kabola old English diesel stove lies on board, but is yet to be installed. This will come with the boat should the new owners prefer the hassle-free nature of a diesel stove. Having continuously cruised the London network for the past 2.5years, we have a strong bond with Cotswold and are pleased to have seen it come to life with our own personal touches. It’s been a great way to live in & explore London, she will keep a special place in our hearts and has provided a great adventure for us. We hope this can be passed on to you.
