General Comments About the Boat

The front bow deck has a three plant pots which give beautiful colour throughout the year and at the very front is the gas locker (two gas bottles) and the gas testing unit.

Entering through the bow double doors and down 3 steps you enter the 'living room' with two large windows allowing light in. 

Immediately to your left there is a Morso Squirrel multifuel stove with a backboiler (overhauled professionally in 2020) with twin lined flue (replaced in 2020) which feeds two radiators toward the stern of the boat using an efficient gravity system with no pumps required. There is also a stove fan ontop of the stove to circulate air around the boat to keep all areas warm through the cooler months. To the right there is a coal cupboard that can store 8 x 20kg bags of smokeless solid fuel. 

Above the cupboard is a book shelf and just behind the book shelf is a handy set of coat hooks right by the door. Infront of the coal cupboard is a movable footstool which can seat one and also stores the firelighting and kindling. 

A double sofa which folds out into a slim double bed at night. Moving past the sofa there is the dining area with a fold out free standing IKEA table and 4 stacked chairs on oneside with a former church pew bench on the otherside - meaning the table when fulled extended can seat 6 people. The fold out table has 6 draws with in it. 

Moving through into the galley space there are work counters on boths sides with a pull out draw, storage unit and workcounter. Three cupboards, with blue and white mess tin sets of side plates, bowls and pie dishes (for mains) for 6 people. 3 draws including a cutlery set. A stainless sink and draining board with a cupboard underneath, semi-automatic twin tub washing machine, and a 12v shoreline fridge with freezer compartment. There is a spinflo gas oven with grill and a 4 ring gas hob, with pots, pans, and other cooking utensils hanging above it. 

Moving down the corridor to your right is a spacious shower-room, with a pressurised shower in the centre allowing 6ft 6in of standing room, a Thetford cassette toilet, IKEA square sink and mirrored vanity unit, plus undersink cupboard storage. Next to the shower there is a washing basket. 

Moving through the door in to the bedroom, there is a double bed with overhead and underbed storage (4 deep drawers) and a double full length wardrobe at the end of the room, next to the door through to the engine room. Just infront of the door inside the main cabin is a step for shoe storage. 

The engine room is enclosed as it is a traditional stern narrowboat. It houses the Issuzu Marine 35 engine. Four domestic batteries, one starter battery, powered by 4 110W solar panels and two alternators connected to an alternator to battery inverter charger; and a separate 2kw inverter for running the 240v plugs in the living and kitchen areas of the cabin. The stern tube is an automatic water sealed system so no having to grease up after each cruise.

The boat is fully insured with Circle Marine

We have Retainer Cover with River Canal Rescue

We offer two gurantees to people buying shares in Jamaica Farewell.

1. Buy your share today and if at any point upuntil the end of your first day of training on your first week you change your mind, we give you a full refund on your share purchase. That means if something changes for you or at the end of your first day aboard you have decided it's not for you you walk away and get 100% of your share purchase price back.

2. Anytime after the end of your first day of training and up to the end of your first week you decide it's not for you after all or you wish to withdraw, we refund you 75% of your share purchase. This means that if you get to the end of your first week and decide that you don't wish to continue we give you back the share price, minus £1125 - which is similar to the cost of hiring a similar specification narrowboat for a week in summer.

We hope that these guarantees help people feel confident that they are making the right choices for them and by the end of their first week, feel committed and happy with their decision - either way.
