ORMELITE 25 – GREAT CONDITION*25ft GRP NARROWBOAT – BSC TO AUGUST 2022*GREAT VALUE & READY TO GO*IDEAL CRUISING LIVEABOARD WITH MOORING
Hi, and thanks for looking at my ad for this 25ft GRP narrowboat for sale on behalf of the owner. This is a great opportunity to get hold of one of these
well-regarded Ormelites that were built in Leicester and are
designed for inland waterway cruising. This is a narrow beam and would
make a great compact liveaboard as well as a pied-a-terre or holiday
boat. If you look around you can see that the asking price of £5,950 is very reasonable for a boat of this size with a mooring in this location and the owner will also consider all reasonable offers: she is advertised for sale elsewhere.
Powered by a Kubota 2
cylinder diesel engine on a shaft drive, this is an ideal for this boat
and pushes her through the water very well with power in reserve – very
economical and with cheap spares availability.
These are a very
clever boat, built very well in GRP (fibreglass) and is narrowbeam so
can cruise the entire inland waterway network of connected rivers and
canals – some 2,500+ miles. Designed with a sliding roof so you can
choose whether to cruise in the open air or under cover depending on the
weather, there is an attractive wheelhouse area with well set-up
There is a really clever layout which is surprisingly
spacious, with the galley set longways and an aft saloon that can
convert from a sofa / bed to a dinette. Forward is a V-berth that is
large and spacious with privacy door, fitted chest of drwaers and
wardrobe. There is a shower room with space for a porta-potti. Fitted
with a starter battery and a leisure battery, solar panel and battery
charger, instant hot water heater, wall mounted gas fire, lots of
storage space and a good galley with gas hob, grill and oven and sink,
taps and drainer.
The paperwork shows that Bruin was built by
Orme & Sons of Leicester in 1974 and there is a current Boat Safety
Certificate that runs until August 2022.
Comes with a guaranteed
mooring that is fully transferable to the new owner and is in an ideal
location in Egham / Old Windsor on the River Thames. The boatyard is
small and friendly and everyone is welcome and the boat can be viewed
there so come along, look around and make an offer.
Overall, this is a really good opportunity to get hold of a very good value GRP narrowboat with all the advantages that a 25ft boat gives you including cheaper maintenance and moorings and a practical and usable layout at a very attractive price that is suitable for use as a holiday or weekend cruising boat, a pied-a-terre or as a compact liveaboard. Both the interior and exterior are in good condition and the whole boat is light, bright and airy and perfect to make a good living space. She is a great boat and comes with moorings so please come and view her so you can see for yourself.
