Number of berths


A Traditional narrowboat with a cosy country cottage feel.

Enter the boat through the cratch covered bow where there are steel lockers with wooden tops and cushions on either side of the boat for storage and seating with a table between for alfresco dining. Through the half-glazed bow doors and down the steps into the Saloon, on your right is a corner cupboard and then on your left is a corner cupboard with a freestanding TV on top, followed by a selection of glazed and unglazed cupboards for all your bits and pieces. Following on from the cupboards on the starboard side is the Morso Squirrel Stove set on a raised tiled hearth.

Moving into the Galley, on your left is a worktop with cupboards and drawers under with a large wooden display plate and mug holder above a shelf. Following on from this is a side hatch. To your right are cupboards and drawers interspersed with the freestanding Stoves cooker, and the undercounter fridge with a worktop above with inset sink and drainer. Then on the back of the portside half bulkhead you have a full-height vertical selection of cupboards and drawers and next to them is the Morco Instant Gas Water Heater.

Continue down the starboard side corridor and to your right you will find the Bathroom with a Mansfield Traveller pump-out toilet, a washbasin set into a vanity unit with cupboard under and mirror above, and a shower cubicle with door.

Next you come to the bedroom with a double bed with storage under and a large cupboard with shelves over the foot of the bed with display shelves on the outside, handy for your cup of tea in the mornings. Following on from the bedroom is a second saloon/dinette/bedroom with a L-Shaped fixed dinette that turns into a double bed for your visitors.  There is also a Candy washing machine at the end of the dinette as well as a wardrobe with hanging rail.

Lastly is the back cabin, with a boxed in engine, a double cupboard for storage, your control panel and steps leading out to the Trad Stern, which has two wooden topped seats for when you are out on the cut.

A mooring is available with this boat.
