Oakums is a stunning brand new reverse layout 57’ Semi trad narrowboat built in 2020 by Oakums Boatbuilders on a Jackson & Son’s shell. She is a real head turner from outside with her metallic paint and classic lines, and from inside with her first class fit out in solid oak, Carrara marble and deep pile carpets. She is truly a luxurious floating country cottage.
No expense has been spared in the build of this boat. The semi trad deck houses the Canaline 42 deluxe engine under in an engine room which houses the 500ah AGM battery bank and the calorifier. Steps lead down into the ‘vestibule’, a practical room to divest of wet clothes and wellies before entering the heart of the boat. The washing machine, along with cupboards & electrics, is in here also.
A frosted glass door leads into the galley. This is well equipped with a 3 burner gas hob, gas oven with electric grill, a 230v integrated fridge (with icebox) and a slimline dishwasher. The sink is stainless steel and the worktops are Carrara marble. There is oodles of storage space and a large electrically (remote controlled) opening skylight which adds lights and air. (There is also one of these in both the saloon & bedroom). They have solar film on to reduce sun heat. A breakfast bar ledge leads into the saloon.
The sitting room is very cottagy. There is a breakfast bar for dining and a super comfy armchair sits forward of the solid fuel stove (Carrara surround & hearth) and the second skylight is over. A chaise lounge style sofa sits opposite the fire and the TV station is aft if the fireplace (a wireless solar TV with built in satellite tuner & NowTV HDMI). The carpet (as in the bedroom) is deep pile with thermal underlay).
The luxurious walkthrough bathroom follows. The sink is ceramic, the units are solid oak (as with the rest of the boat) and the tiles and counter top are carrara marble. The bath has the shower over (including a rain shower head) and the loo is a composting one.
The bedroom is in the forward cabin. The fixed double is 6’4” x 4’ and has lots of storage under. There is a large double wardobe at the head (along with another large floor to ceiling cupboard) and storage at the foot if the bed. There is another sky light in here. Steps lead out on to the well deck through glazed front doors.
Where are the radiators?? She is centrally heated by a Webasto under floor (zone controlled) diesel fired system. This heats the hot water (as does the engine) and the water tank is stainless steel (750 litres). 230v is from the 3kva (9kva peak) inverter/charger or landline hook up, and all the lighting is LED mood lighting. All the windows on board are double glazed, and all the mirrors on board are of bronzed glass. This boat is simply beautiful.
