General Comments About the Boat

Shropshire Blue is a comfortable 57 foot narrowboat launched originally in 2002.

The boat has always been a private syndicate.

Repainted in 2017, items are replaced as and when necessary.

Recent work has included blacking, replacement major electrical cabling, stern tube, internal soft furnishings and curtains and mattress.

She is fitted out internally mostly of pine tongue and groove.

The bedroom is at the stern. Additional storage is provided by over bed cupboard and a single wardrobe. The wet cupboard and electrics/non domestic storage cupboards are at the side of the steps.

The bathroom has a WC, shower and wash basin with vanity unit. In the galley, a pleasant L-shape, there is a full range of base units both sides providing ample storage. There is a gas eye level grill and oven with electric fridge under, there is a gas hob is set into worktop and of course a sink. The galley is very well equipped with Microwave, toaster, crockery, cutlery and cooking equipment for a crew of six.

The very full domestic inventory also includes a Henry Vac.

An additional make up double berth is provided by the raised dinette, which also provides storage for bedding with cupboards along with a full tool kit.

The saloon has two comfy armchairs, which convert, into single berths, an LCD TV with DVD and a radio.

A boiler supplies the central heating with a solid fuel stove providing additional heating in the colder months. The saloon is fully carpeted; storage steps lead to the bow deck where the gas locker is located.

Shropshire Blue is fully equipped for canal cruising.

The engine is serviced regularly and we are also members of a breakdown association.
