Minnow is a classic and beautiful Peter Nicholls hand built narrowboat.She is a very reliable Livaboard that I have owned for three years now with no issues. It has been well looked after over the years and comes with all the paperwork of her history, including all the manuals for the onboard systems.She is set up for constant cruising and so long trips down the river are peaceful and stress free.All systems are 12V, and with three leisure batteries and a 100W solar panel I haven’t had a problem with power.She has an 1800W Sterling inverter to provide 240V for additional needs, as well as USB chargers for laptops/phones.A 300 gallon water tank and 150 gallon diesel tank ensures a decent range.She has a 1.5L Bowman Diesel engine that has been serviced regularly & still has its original paint! The battery and alternator are all in good working order.Hot water is provided by a Paloma gas heater with space for two 13kg bottles in the bow gas locker.A flavel hotplate/grill/oven is used for cooking, with an option to instal a gas fridge/12v/240V fridge. However there is a 12v cooler box to assist with keeping you beer cold in the meantime.There is ample space in the back for tools/life jackets & a drum kit!The toilet is an Elsan cassette with three spare tanks, with storage in the stern for when they are full. There is room to fit a pump out should you require it.A good quality and efficient solid fuel burner provides plenty of heat keeping her warm dry and cozy over the winter.She is light and spacious for a vessel of this size, and a skylight over the shower provides excellent ventilation.She comes with all the necessary tools/ropes/fenders/spares that you will need, and with clever storage solutions, an extra small double bed and two sized dining tables guests have not been a problem. There are also two big storage lockers under the sofas and under the master bed.I will be sad to see her go but am looking for a quick sale as I am buying another boat so offers will be considered. She is currently moored in a private marina in Bishops Stortford where I will be taking viewings.It takes 2 days from here to get to little Venice which is her spiritual home :)Full video walkthrough available on request. Blacked, BSS and new anodes installed July 2016.Smoke alarm, Carbon monoxide alarm & fire extinguishers/blankets/woodworking & fire tools included.Clean and dry bilge.
