70 foot cruiser stern narrowboat ideal as either a family cruiser or a liveaboard home fully refurbished
having spent over £16000 on the last three months.
Originally purchased to be used as a part time home but
circumstances have changed and so having had everything completed its ready to have
a new home.
This boat has been out of the water since the 6th
of May this year it has undergone a complete overhaul
When the boat was removed from the water for a survey and
blacking it was suggested by the surveyor that a number of things needed
addressing. Since then it has had everything and more done, followed by another
survey last week. The same surveyor returned and was very surprised to see both
the amount of work that has been professionally carried out and the quality.
The following work has just been completed:
The front deck had an open locker which held water that has
been removed and been reformed including the deck rubbing rails and new water filler and vent
fitted The cabin outside was sandblasted to remove the old paint, the roof was
awful the paint and badly done, once taken back to metal the cabin has had three
coats of primer and three of red oxide.
It is now ready to have a top coat of whatever colour the new owner would like.
The cruiser stern deck a large area was completely removed
all the drain channels were of poor quality, every bit of the old deck was cut
out and removed and a complete deck with new substantial drainage channels
replaced, a complete new weed hatch was made and fitted, the gas locker was re
jigged, the battery tray was re-made
The fuel tank was redone to include a huge inspection
hatch making very easy access to the tank to clean at any time, all the fuel
pipes have been rerouted and properly fitted, including the heating.
The tiler shaft was cleaned out and blacked and a new
warstock bearing. (Never have water coming back up the shaft again !!)
A new rear hatch has been made and fitted.
There is a huge new alternator fitted new wiring to
the batteries (all new)
The prop has been re-packed and all the wiring re-done in the engine room
The engine area cleaned and painted.
The engine is a 3-cylinder air cooled Lister absolutely
super engine starts first time every time.
The engine has just been checked over with new filters (oil
and fuel) the mechanic is going to do the same to the gearbox this week.
On the rear deck under the tiller is a key start 3500 kw
diesel generator starts every time first time has had almost no use but a new
battery has just been fitted.
The engine has had a new air outlet made with proper louvers
fitted and substantial s/s air outlet tubes fitted. So, with a superb Hull and engine it means
this boat will not require further work for many years to come.
The interior has also had a complete makeover entering from
the bow a large open plan lounge area this has a kabola old English fire this
heats the lounge and also radiators throughout the boat including the bathroom
towel rail (NEW) One advantage is it can be lit quickly but also switched off
instantly when you want to, very economical and still giving a nice warm fire
glow to make you feel snug and warm. No more coal being collected and getting
wet on the roof and no more mess.
The calorifier is situated next to the fire so very fast
heating of hot water. It is also fitted with a 1kw immersion heater.
(For those who have never one of these stoves, once the sale
has been completed, we will pay for Kabola to come to the boat to fully service
it but also to show the new buyer exactly how to operate the system.
From the lounge into the galley kitchen which houses a
fridge, washer dryer, double oven, many kitchen cupboards and draws a s/s sink
Through to the bathroom this has a bath with shower over a
pump out toilet and large basin and heated towel rail.
Next is the double bedroom, loads of space under the bed for

Round the corner to the rear of the boat it is fitted with
three single beds all with great storage under there is a small wardrobe area
and a further toilet with small basin ( no rush for the loo if you have guests)
as with the rest of the boat it has been made fresh and neutral throughout.
Everywhere the boat has new wood trim.
There are steps up and out to the rear deck passing the
controls housing the fuses and switches all have been checked and it’s all tidy, there is a battery isolation switch, volt digital output display, Victron
switch panel and ignition.
