|General comments about the boat|
Beginning at the semi traditional stern, (equipment locker situated here) go down into rear cabin where there is a fixed extendable double bed and vanity unit. Plenty of storage under bed. Radio installed above bed. Also a wardrobe which houses an Alde gas fired boiler. Ideal for drying wet clothing.
Moving forward, toilet and shower room to the left with shallow wardrobe in corridor.
Forward again into galley where there is a gas fuelled oven and grill and four burner hob. An electric fridge and microwave oven are standard equipment. Storage cupboards under sink unit. The side door is in the galley.
Forward of the galley is the dining area which converts to a double bed.
Forward of the dining area is the lounge with an 'L' shaped settee which also converts to a double bed by using a second table that can be utilised in this area. An additional small square table can also be used here. A Squirrel stove is mounted at the front of this cabin as well as a flat screen TV with DVD player. A radio is fitted here. The cabin contains a small wardrobe opposite the stove.
Continue forward through double doors into the cockpit which is fitted with a covered cratch.
A hydraulic bow thruster makes for easy handling.

General Comments by vendor
Verity is a very reliable, well looked after boat. Owners are welcome to carry out any DIY work which they are capable of doing in order to keep maintenance cost down.
The internal appearance is enhanced by wall coverings, carpet below the gunwales and wall covering above. The ceiling is finished in timber panels and the floor is carpeted throughout except the galley area and rear cabin aft of the bed.
We usually stay at a mooring location for two years and then move on. This enables a much greater opportunity to explore more of the canal system. This year we have moved to Ventnor Farm Marina in Warwickshire following several years moored in Staffordshire.
Verity is a former Challenger boat which is now self-managed. Any surplus from the annual running costs is ring-fenced to cover major expenditure. The syndicate appoints Chair, Secretary and Treasurer at the AGM, whilst other syndicate members take responsibility to find new mooring venues. The syndicate members are friendly and get on well with each other
