Starting from the rear, there are 2 storage lockers with seating and the control / instrument panel before dropping down the steps to enter the saloon which has built in seating that converts to beds, storage cupboards, under-step storage and a solid fuel stove.  There is a built-in flat screen TV, a DVD player and Radio / CD player. The bathroom has a full-size shower, vanity unit with inset basin, storage below and a cupboard above, together with a macerating pump out toilet.
In the front bedroom there is a full sized fixed double bed with a luxury mattress and storage cupboards above the bed. There is a wardrobe and a hidden washing machine/ tumble dryer with storage cupboard above. The steps out to the front Well Deck have storage within them.  The bedroom is well equipped with storage.

The bow locker contains two gas cylinders.
The boat is equipped with bow thruster for easy manoeuvring, and with diesel fuelled central heating to skirting radiators plus radiator in the bathroom.

General comments by vendor

Happy Days is the third share boat we have owned and we have had some wonderful holidays afloat.

We shall now be looking for a suitable narrowboat with school holiday shares available.

The boat is due for a bare metal repaint during the winter of 23/24 and this will be fully funded from reserves.

In addition, there will still be sufficient contingency within the boat's bank account to cover any unexpected major expense.
