This is a nice clean looking engine which sounds good. It has been regularly maintained. It has done approximately 2500 hours. The bilge is dry and the engine compartment scrupulously clean.

The engine is hull cooled so there is no troublesome raw water system to maintain. The engine bay is well insulated to deaden the sound and make cruising a quiet pleasure.

Finish Paint finish

A very good looking boat designed by Chris Hill and built at Droitwich in 1998. The original paintwork is in good condition and the hull has been professionally blacked every two years.

A semi trad stern allows for a sociable cruising experience and a covered cratch at the front allows a choice of extra indoor space or an open foredeck.

The interior finish is superb with solid light ash panelling. The doors are panelled and the furniture crafted in darker wood.

A side hatch and Houdini hatches in addition to the large windows allow plenty of light and air into the boat. The individual covers on the Houdini hatches which ensure that there is no chance of rain leakage are typical of the attention to detail on this boat..

Broker's Comments

If you are seeking style and and luxury in a narrowboat, this is the one. The standard of interior finish is amazing.

The present owners have owned her since new and she has obviously been well cherished and beautifully kept.

She has been maintained to a very high standard and it shows in every apsect of the boat.

Details such as the extra width bed, the full set of covers and the panelled doors give this boat that little bit extra.

A great holiday cruiser which would also make a very nice little live-aboard for one person or a couple.
