Presque Là is a delightful 57’ traditional stern narrowboat, built and fitted out in 1991 by Stoke on Trent Boat Builders. Fitted out in cream painted ply and T& G and with three good size houdini hatches over the saloon, galley and bedroom, she has a lovely light and airy feel to her.
The stern feels more spacious than the usual traditional stern deck. The doors lead into the engine room with the Perkins Prima M50 engine sitting under the decks. The bedroom follows with a fixed double (6ft 2in x 4ft), a large double wardrobe and lots of additional storage in nine draws under the bed.
Next comes the bathroom which is a fully tiled off corridor arrangement on the port side. The shower sits over a good size hip bath with a shower curtain, the loo is a Mansfield Traveler pump out and the basin is ceramic. In the corridor outside the bathroom there is a large floor to celing cupboard containing the Hotpoint top loading washing machine.
The pullman style dinette (with coolbox & storage under) converts into a second double berth and this is followed by the walk through galley which contains all the necessary utilities. These include a Thetford oven and grill, a 4 burner gas hob (new in 2016), a 24v shoreline fridge with ice box (new in 2018) and plenty of draws and cupboards. Finally there is the very comfortable saloon, with a large L-shaped sofa (converting into a third 5ft wide double berth), the Mazona cedar multi-fuel stove and a 16” TV. The well deck contains a couple of storage lockers plus the gas locker (new in 2018) and under the fore deck there is additional storage space.
The six domestic batteries were all new in 2019, the starter was new in 2018 and there are also two batteries for the Vetus 45kgf bowthruster. On board 230v is from either landline hook up or the 1600w Victron Inverter. Additional equipment includes a Travelpower generator and solar panels providing 450w. Heating is from the Mazona Cedar mutli-fuel stove or the diesel fired Eberspacher central heating system (new in August 2019). The engine also heats two radiators at the stern.
Overall she is a lovely boat with everything you need - she won’t be around for long!
