Name: Duckling 1
30 foot long (9 meters) narrowboat with a 6ft 5in foot beam (2 meters).
V shaped hull with shallow draft, is very light and manoeuvrable fitted with an outboard motor.
YDSA Full out of water Hull Thickness Survey done in September 28th 2023.
Epoxy resin coated hull that is still in great condition.
Built by Tysol Ltd some time before 1988 but have yet to find a definite build date.
These boats were originally built as Diesel inboard stern drive narrow boats with a v bottom and shallow draft but at some point has been converted to take an outboard.
There is a lot of great advantages to having an outboard and it’s worth having a chat with me to go through all these reasons.
Head room inside is 5ft 11in or 180cm.
Located at a locked and private mooring in Hazlemere Marina, in Waltham Abbey on the Lee Navigation.
Full out of water survey just done on the 28th September, the hull past with flying colours, there is a few changes I might have to do for extra ventilation but that should be all. I’m just awaiting these changes that I will do before sale.
