Been with the current owner for over 10 years and the boat has had a large amount of money spent renovating over the years. The boat had been single handed CC around the system by a female.
Lister SR3 (large engine great for the rivers especially Tidal Thames or getting out of tricky situations) and LH150 gear box which has been completely overhauled. The engine was taken out and cleaned when this was done. the starter motor has been replaced. New Exhaust. Engine has had a full service (been serviced on a regular basis). The engine has only been used to move the boat and a large 2Kw generator with Sterling Pro Charge Ultra (award wining!) and 4 x solar has been used to charge the batteries. 2 large diesel tanks and always top up in the winter (over £400 of diesel comes with the boat) and I have put Marine 16 Diesel Bug Treatment in the diesel every year to prevent diesel bugs. Am willing to put a 12 months warranty of the engine and gear box.
5 x 120ah batteries (new still under warranty), 500 w of solar panels. charging house batteries and engine batteries. the boat has 240v (inverter and generator
The gas locker has a gas bubble so you can test of gas leaks. The gas pipe supplies the cooker and boiler the other side of the bulk head so no long gas pipes running through the boat.
The instant hot water, water is heated through a Morco gas water heater (no running the engine for an hour for hot water! I find that boats that don't have gas water heaters a night mare if you want to shower before or after 8 am or 8pm)
From the large front deck enter the kitchen, (great for cups of tea in the lock) full size gas cooker 4 hobs, gill (great gill for toast and beacon), oven. round sink with black mirror flex granite worktop. Black Hi gloss kitchen with soft close draws, 12V fridge, with storage cupboards.
From the Kitchen is the lounge (open plan with the kitchen to make an airy feeling) I had a 3 seat sofa made to measure for the boat that fit under the gunnels and upgrade on the faux leather (easy wipe clear) sofabed with large storage this cost over £500.
Morso squirrel fire to keep warm in the winter. (the boat has Celotex insulation so is very, very warm)
Through a door is a bathroom with a full sized shower chrome thermo,mmkr5mstatic shower with black and white metro tiles.
Thetford posh c200 cassette toilet (looks like a really toilet) Free to empty along station on the canal. (unlike pump-out costing over £17)
Black glass hand basin with mirror.
Bedroom has a full length Wardrobe with room for changing.
Sliding door from bathroom to bedroom. 2 single beds that can be made into a double bed ( tempus) this was king size and has been cut and re-covered to give it extra length small storage unit at front, storage also under bed.
Then I bought the boat it was a empty shell and was stripped back inside to bare metal, grinded, rush killed, red oxide and the a layer of paint to protect the hull.
Flooring karndean flooring hard wearing, easy to mop cost over £45 per meter.
The outside has been over plated and I have the last 3 hull surveys, over the last 10 year showing the hull is in great condition been on a regular basis with blacking.
The inside of the boat has been professional rewired with 240v 12v, LED lights and has all plastic water piping to prevent any winter leaks.
The outside of the boat has just been fully painted using Marine paint Jotun 2 pack epoxy in grey and black which would cost over £4000 at the boat yard.
The boat will be already to go in a few weeks time view available on the kennet and Avon canal. Come with everything you need to start boating, ropes, pins, plates, glasses etc. New BSS so 4 years left. Head height just under 6ft.
Comes with all manuals, and I how to use the boat book, written by myself.
If you are new to boating I can give you a boat lesson. I can get the boat delivered to you chosen location as well. Local train station close by with access to London etc
Please ensure you have done your research! Boat size, layout, toilet, CCing or Marina, etc am not a boat directory for information.
Please ensure you have the money in your account! Thinking of selling the house does not count......or getting a loan etc.
