Broker's Comments

This beautifully fitted out and well throught-through Dutch style narrowboat is an ideal canal boat to liveaboard in style.

The open plan saloon and galley have a feeling of spaciousness and the dinnette provides a permanent eating area with seating for four. The galley comes with a split level cooker, microwave cooker, washing machine, tumble dryer, fridge and coffer maker!

The saloon is of good size and has opposing side hatches that allow additional light and ventilation. Both the dinnette and the saloon seating can be converted into double berths.

The main cabin is set at the aft of the boat and has a feeling of style and luzuary set off by the stained glass windows above the bed. The cabin has plenty of deep storage in wardrobes and draws and a useful esuite cassette toilet.

The family shower room is at the forward end. This is a good size with quadrant shower, vitreous electric toilet that empties into a holding tank and vanity unit with inset basin.

The central wheelhouse provides protection for the damp days and a good vantage point to watch the world pass by. The wheelhouse sides can be dropped and the top is of canvass sheet.

BSS - Valid until February 2023
