‘Pipit’ is a unique 17ft all steel John Shotbolt boat built as a one off build in 1992.
She was taken out of the water and blacked in May 2018 in addition to having 5 new anodes. She had a hull thickness test completed also at this time which showed her hull to be in excellent condition for her age and no hull work is required. (You are welcome to have an additional survey)
She is well insulated, lovely and cool inside during the summer and warm in winter, with a new Glastonbury Gnome log burner (2kw) fitted.
I have fitted a 6x3ft wide single sofa bed across the bow end of the boat which has plenty of storage underneath but this could be easily removed for a study/studio space. Plus she has massive windows which let in a lot of natural light.
I have just fitted a small kitchen space in the stern end, which contains sink/drainer, wooden worktop, beautiful hand made Mexican tiles and a kitchen base unit.
Toilet area does have space for a shower if you wish to fit one (see photo).
She is powered by a Honda 10hp outboard motor, with 15 litre fuel tank.
I have also recently purchased: a 175w solar panel, 1 brand new Crown leisure battery, mppt controller, Numax 12v 20amp battery charger, 12v sockets for appliances or charging, however these are not yet fitted.
I lived on her for nearly 2 years while I did her up…. It’s an ideal dayboat for weekends away or a tiny livaboardfor someone who wants a cheap home while they save up some cash, which is what I did…. Would also make a good butty boat or fancy man cave/shed/storage ?
Pipit is located on the Trent & Mersey, Northwich, Cheshire.
