50ft fully restored narrowboat for sale currently near Stansted Marina. The boat has been very recently out of the water (29th August - 6th September) the hull was was blacked, new anodes fitted, a surveyed completed (contact for full report and details) and a full engine service carried out. The boat is now in the water and won´t need to be serviced again for 2-3 years.
The boat has been my home for over 6 years and I have lovingly restored and updated the boat to create a cosy, modern and functional space.
The interior has been insulated and lined in beech veneer marine ply with solid beech trims. The work was carried out by a skilled carpenter with years of boat building experience and the finished work is really beautiful. The floor has been laid in wenge wood Amtico flooring which is light, extremely durable and easy to clean.
These details are best seen in person to appreciate but they create a feeling a space and continuity whilst still leaving room for individual styling and details.
The bathroom is simple and stylishly finished with on overhead shower and even a cosy bath tub. A Thetford C200 swivel toilet with electrical flush was fitted and there is spare cassette.
The bedroom is simple with two porthole windows and gorgeous fitted wardrobes along with a pair of bespoke double doors to the engine room. There is fixed double bed with space for storage beneath.
There is a professionally installed leisure battery system which provides both 12v and 240v to the oulets pumps and lights. The batteries are charged by a 200w panel and of course when the engine is running. We recently replaced the batteries with x3 95ah Exide ER450 Marine Batteries costing £300.
To the rear of the boat is a roomy engine room with good access to the Lister SR3 diesel engine and LH50 gearbox, which has been professionally serviced. See images (airbox not attached in images)
The boat was built in 1991 by Stroud Boat Builder. There are two years left on boat safety certificate.
