Selling my 1975 Springer narrow boat midway through its renovation.
Great opportunity for someone to carry on and make their own.
The boat was last out of the water in 2015 when it was surveyed blacked and overplated. The survey can be supplied if you’re interested, though work has been carried out since.
The boat is as follows:
1975 Dartline Springer 6mm steel hull Springer style with fibreglass top
48ft Cruiser stern, with a varying internal head height of 5’11” to 6ft
The base plate bow to stern was completely overplated with 6mm steel in 2015 along with any other areas of immediate concern by Uxbridge boat centre, London
Air cooled Lister 3 cylinder Diesel engine
Integral water, diesel, and gas tanks2 berth (fixed Double to bow)
Newly fitted alternator fitted Feb ’18
New solid oak doors to stern fitted May ’18
New starter battery fitted Feb ’18
4x 110amp leisure battery’s unused from new
Interior spray foam insulated bow to stern in ’17 and relined in marine ply
My partner has accepted a job in Bristol and it’s not wholly feasible for us to continue. So unfortunately I won’t get to see it finished.
This is a project boat, so if you’re sincerely interested, come and have a look. I’ll be open and honest and talk you through all the things I’ve done, all the things that need doing, and all the things I was going to do.
P.s. There is a family of coots nesting in one of the tires at the moment (hence the blue tarp in the pictures, I can’t move it without disturbing them). So it is currently stationary in Uxbridge, London.
Current Price: £15000.00
