Lying: Glascote Basin, Coventry Canal
For further information or to arrange a viewing please e-mail email@example.com or call Sarah on 01827 311 317
Railay was built as a liveaboard narrowboat and this has been taken to account in every detail, with the use of space and the boat electrical systems, which mean the boat is able to function happily without mains hook up for extended periods.
A Beta Marine 7KvA Generator was fitted in 2020.
A full repaint was undertaken in May 2020.
Overall Length: 70’0”
Plating: 10 / 6 / 5
Well Deck: 5’0”
Railay has a well deck, which is covered by a cratch cover, and steps from the well deck lead down into the saloon.
The saloon is an open layout with space for freestanding furniture. The area is heated by a Morso squirrel solid fuel stove. Starboard side doors open into the saloon.
The galley has units on both the port and starboard side. The work surfaces are solid oak with ceramic wall times. The galley is equipped with a Baumatic 4-ring hob, oven and grill, a Nef combi fan assisted oven and grill, there is a Bosch integrated 240v fridge and a dishwasher. There are port side doors that provide access into the galley, a section of worktop can be removed so you can step into the galley, again maximising the use of space.
The bedroom has a fixed double bed on the starboard side of the boat and there is a utility cupboard that houses the washing machine.
The bathroom is located off a portside corridor, when both doors are opened fully the bathroom takes up the whole width of the boat. The bathroom has a 900x900 tiled quadrant shower unit with a thermostatically controller mixer. The basin is ceramic and sits on a vanity unit and the toilet is a porta potti, but previously fitted was a vacuflush ceramic toilet with a 100 gal tank, the tank is still there so this could be re-instated.
Engine Room: 5’0”
The engine room houses a Lister HRW3 coupled with a PRM260. The engine dates from 1980’s, but had never been fitted in a boat before it was fitted in Railay from new.
To the stern of the boat is a workshop with bench seating and large desk space, which is ideal for use as a craft space of office. There is also full height wardrobe unit on the starboard side.
