General Comments About the Boat

Starting at the rear is the Semi Trad stern with equipment lockers and seats with storage.  Stairs then lead down to the bedroom, which has king size (pullout) bed and plenty of wardrobes and cupboard space – all in solid oak.

Walking through the corridor, next there is separate bathroom with full size shower, basin and pump out wc.

The kitchen is next, recently re-done in solid oak and has full size cooker, fridge (with freezer compartment) and microwave.  Here you can open side hatch. 

Forward of kitchen, everything is open which gives illusion of space and a view out over the well deck through glazed doors. 

The dining area, re-upholstered recently, along with all other soft furnishings, converts to double bed – with storage beneath. Plenty of room for 4, 6 if 2 are kids.

In front of the dining area is a large lounge with sofa and blow up bed for additional guests.  This area can be separated with full length curtain.  Again lots of solid oak storage.  Here is TV/DVD and wood burning stove and double doors on to the deck.

Fresh water tank is mounted below the front deck and holds approximately 150 gallons.  Gas locker for 2 x 13kg gas bottles and couple of seat lockers.

The boat is regularly maintained which includes refurbishment during winter months while not in use. 

The heating system was replaced in 2015.

The boat carries the CE mark and complies with the Recreational Craft Directive which includes the Boat Safety Certificate.

Insulation spray polystyrene all external areas. 

Lining : Ash T & G and /or oak faced panelling and hardwood trim.

Heating: Diesel central heating with radiators and solid fuel stove.

Power: 12 volt system and/or 240 volt through an inverter.

General comments by vendor

We would consider splitting the weeks if you only want one week

We have held a share in this boat since 2014 and have enjoyed many holidays on the canal network including a Christmas on the Llangollen.

The boat is maintained to a high standard and has undergone substantial and continued improvements, most recently a full repaint at Aqueduct over this last winter (2022/23).

Internally; oak kitchen, wardrobes, cupboards, upgraded shower/bathroom, flooring, upholstery and painting throughout living areas.

Others - new engine (2017), diesel heating (2015), new radiators (2022), calorifier and leisure batteries.

If any member is unable to use their week, it is offered to others within the group for the weekly maintenance charge.

It is also possible to approach others for one off swaps.

An AGM is held in December where owners get together to review previous cruising season and agree works to be carried out during that winter.

Lovely, smart, comfortable boat in a great location, 20 minutes from junction 18 of M6.
