This is my second account that I have just opened due to business reorganisation due to COVID, check out my business account ( smokeandnoisegarage ) with hundreds of sales and 100% feedback. This is a rare opportunity to acquire a stunning classic Victorian rowing/sailing clinker built boat, probably from the late 1800’s and restored by my Father-in-Law in 1992.
He has used this boat for travelling the canals and rivers and she is equipped for sleeping/living as there is a full canvas cover and a mattress and even a water tank, see pics. (Stainless steel with brass tap but painted to look like wood)
There are two pairs of oars in different lengths and originally the boat was going to be a sail boat and masts where made but the job was never completed as my Father-in Law then decided to make it into his camping boat for the canals. (Masts included, see photos, so you could finish the job.)
The rudder is operated by the ropes shown or if the seat back rest is removed it has two tiller handles of different lengths that can be attached.
Also a canvas tailored storage cover made out of the same canvas as the canopy shown in pics.
The attention to detail is fantastic and virtually all done by himself, even down to turning the small brass items and leather work on the oars etc.
It is far more impressive in the flesh and looks stunning when on the water and always gathers a crowd.
You just don’t see stuff like this nowadays.
Unfortunately he is in his 80’s and hasn’t been able to use the boat for the last four years so it is now time to go to someone else who can give it the love and life it deserves.
It comes on a galvanised trailer.
Very hard to value such an item and considering the work that went into restoring to the present condition, hundreds, or even thousands of hours and a labour of love, even at minimum wage per hour would put her at tens of thousands of pounds, and that isn’t even including cost of parts and materials!
I am asking what I consider to be a very good deal for such an amazing piece of history.
This will suit a particular sort of individual who understands this type of boat and appreciates history, put your blazer and hat on and it really is like sailing back through time when you are on the water!
