As she is an ex-hire boat, she is very flexible in terms of berths. The rear cabin contains 2 single beds (both with storage drawers underneath) which can also be pushed together to create a double bed. There is also an extra bunk that can be put in place above one of the singles to create a 3rd berth in the rear cabin. The centre cabin contains a fixed double bed with storage drawers under it and the front saloon contains a sofa that can be pulled out and converted into another double bed.
Access to the front of the saloon is via a pair of bi-fold doors which allows the whole of the front cabin to be opened when cruising if the weather is fine.
Standard flat bottomed narrowboat hull constructed with a 10mm baseplate and 6mm hull sides.
As well as a full 4 ring 'Stoves 500 DIT' gas cooker there is a 12v fridge and a microwave in the galley, which comes fully equipped with crockery, cutlery, utensils and glasses. There is a small TV which we have never used (we are not telly people) and a 12v radio. All bedding and towels are also included.
The 'bathroom' is equipped with a Sealand Mansfield Traveller porcelain pump out toilet and a Mira mixer shower.
There is also a further Sealand Mansfield Traveller toilet in a separate toilet between the fixed double and the galley.
The engine bay below the rear deck also contains the hot water calorifier and an AutoTerm Flow 5D diesel heater for the central heating and hot water when the engine is not running.
On the roof is a lockable roof box storing the anchor, a barbeque and a folding table and chairs.
The front well deck is self draining through tubes within the hull, emptying into a 'wet bilge' in the engine bay where it is emptied by an automatic bilge pump. When not required for seating or access, the well deck can be covered by a bespoke tonneau cover which folds away when not in use.
The gas locker at the bow holds 2x13kg Calor propane gas bottles which will remain in situ., the hose pipe to fill the water tanks is also stored in the gas locker.
On board is also a collection of maps and guidebooks for the use of the new owner.
