General Comments About the Boat
Zenith was built in 2001 by John White Boatbuilders and is a beautiful 52 foot semi-trad boat with Josher-style bows, painted Mauritius Blue with coloured lozenges on the front.
She has a large, regularly maintained Beta Marine diesel engine (Model 1903 - 43bhp) which is serviced at 250 hr intervals.
Electrical supply - 3 x domestic batteries and 1 x engine battery. 12V and 240V supplies (via an Inverter). There is a landline connection for powering the 240V system plus a trickle charger for charging up the batteries.
Heating is provided by an Erbespacher diesel central heating system and a solid fuel stove.
The boat is fitted with fire extinguishers and blankets as well as smoke detectors and a CO detector.
The stainless steel water tank holds 150 gallons and has twin water pumps.
The interior of the cabin is lined with ash-veneered T&G and hardwood trim.
There is spray foam insulation in all areas.
Entry is from the stern via a glazed door. This leads into the cabin which has a fixed double bed with an interior spring mattress. The bed side can be pulled out to create a 5 foot wide bed. There is ample storage space beneath the bed and in a range of cupboards.
The shower/bathroom has a 'hip bath' with shower over, a wash basin with storage under, and a Sealand Traveller pump-out toilet.
The galley has vinyl flooring with a sink and drainer, electric fridge, a gas oven, grill and 4-burner hob, and a microwave oven. It is extremely well equipped for four people (there are several good cooks among the owners!).
The main saloon has a breakfast bar with two high stools, and freestanding furniture consisting of two comfortable chairs and a table and chairs set. Extra sleeping accommodation is provided by an inflatable double bed (Aerobed) with in-built pump.

General comments by vendor
The boat's mooring is re-located every few years by agreement with the shareholders, to enable exploration of the whole canal system.
Zenith was completely re-painted in January 2019 as a part of its regular maintenance.
