After selling my original boat from 6 years on the water, I decided
that open plan narrowboats look great in photos, but I bought this
second boat for the unbeatable fitted storage solutions whist
maintaining a good layout. The effectiveness of the heating system and
the unusually thick hull side plate (8.5mm) which should mean this boat
is unlikely to ever need re-plating from any corrosion are other reasons
I chose this boat. I planned to live here for many years but the only
reason to leave now is a growing family.This boat is too gorgeous to
refit again for my changing needs. I hope she goes to the right person
Original build year 1988, seems to be putting some people off
despite steel quality being better then than the 2000s. One long
ownership plus myself and another for 2 years prior. Sitting quietly in
Birmingham for many years. No overplating on the hull. Side plate spec
is unusually thick at 8.5mm and no internal rusting at all thanks to
trad stern engine room.
?Heating system –
Danish Refleks 61MS diesel stove – much cleaner and more convenient
than any wood/coal burner. You will never be cold on this vessel!
Professionally installed with radiators throughout and hot water
calorifier. Just light with a tiny block of fire lighter, turn the tap
on and thats it until you turn it off again. I will miss this and am
tempted to take it with me 😉 – No electricity or pumps required, plus
you get the stove flue heat like any other stove rather than Webasto
diesel heaters that just heat radiators.
Heat directly from stove flue and eco fan for living room
3 x radiators throughout boat inc bedroom
Refleks stove heats hot water in winter via a calorifier instead of the Paloma instant gas water heater, so two options there.

?6 x 2v forklift traction batteries wired in series as one large
560amp ah 12v. Extreme deep cycle, heavy thick lead plates, can be
topped up with water. Likely to never need replacing for 10 years with
the current set up/power audit. Fully accessible and protected from the
elements in the engine room.
1 x starter battery. Only needs a second or two to start this engine so will likely never need replacing
1000w pure sine wave inverter. Cheaper but much quieter and fault free compared to my rip off broken loud Sterling one!
Textured fibreglass solar panel, 250W semi-flexible solar panel (made in Austria)
MPPT regulator for the above
240v throughout, RCD box, fuse trip system etc all fitted professionally at time of build.
Sterling Pro Reg BW smart regulator for fast boost charging to

on boats since 2011. Very efficient! Charges battery bank several times
faster than without this device if using alternator alone.

The photos are true to the boat, but you’ll see much clutter when
viewing due to my family living situation. Use the photos to imagine
what it would be like without us!
I am near a couple of yards if you require a survey, but they are
quite booked up so will need to enquire once there is a serious
enquiry/offer. This boat has had major renovations since the last survey and thus no survey is valid as people keep asking.SURVEYS ARE NOT TRANSFERABLE, YOU NEED TO BOOK YOUR OWN IF YOU WANT ONE!
