60’ x 10’ G & J Reeves 2013 Widebeam, Residential Mooring with Private Garden
Built by G & J Reeves in 2013, 60’ x 10’ Semi-trad wide beam canal boat, lying on the Stort, at a private residential mooring with garden (available to rent by separate negotiation), has a bespoke interior fitted to a high standard and has a full range of high-quality services. Viewings of boat and mooring by appointment only, please.
The private mooring is a six minute drive to Bishops Stortford train station, or a 1½ mile cycle along the towpath. Parking is available and a gate gives access to the mooring for loading from the road. Pedestrian access is via a gate in a low picket fence. The garden, which is exclusive to the mooring, has ample space for a garden table and chairs. The garden is over 100ft long and 35ft wide. There is a shed, various trees and shrubs including an excellent apple. Steps and decking give access to the boat, which is situated in a secluded cut just off the river. There is a stand-pipe to refill the large water tank, and mains electricity is supplied via the shoreline connection to the rear of the vessel.
The vessel was built by Reeves in 2013 and has one owner from new. Blacked and anodes checked in 2019. The semi-trad stern is large enough for a party to gather while cruising, or to accommodate a bistro table and chairs at rest. It includes a locker for storage of gas bottles.
The engine is a Vetus Hyundai VH4.80HP, with only 174 hours on the clock. It is fitted with two alternators that charges 3 leisure batteries and a 1 starter battery. At the front of the boat there is space for two freestanding chairs, and also a built-in bench and a spacious bow locker. Vetus Bow Thrusters provide additional manoeuvrability.
The bespoke interior was fitted by a professional joiner/kitchen designer. Flooring throughout is of engineered oak, apart from the bathroom where wood-design vinyl is used.
From the stern, three steps which double as storage give access to the capacious full-width kitchen with granite worktops, butler sink, Belling Gas oven and four-ring hob. 240V Freezer and washer-dryer and Shoreline Fridge which can run on 240V or 12V. Ample cupboard space above and below. The mushroom vent above the kitchen has its own extractor fan.
The full-width lounge benefits from a Petit Godin Cast Iron Multifuel Stove. The other furniture is free-standing, allowing you to put your own stamp on the boat.
Next a corridor provides access to the first bedroom, currently fitted with a single with full-depth soft-closing under-bed drawers, but easily adapted for bunks or a double. Deep, fitted wardrobe providing lots of storage.
Bathroom has a Thetford macerator pump-out toilet. (A local service can provide a pump-out in inclement weather!), shower with extractor fan, vessel sink mounted on a granite countertop with ample storage below.
The full width master bedroom has a fitted wardrobe. There is access to both sides of the bed. Cavernous storage space under the bed is useful for large items.
Heating to radiators in each room is supplied by a Webasto diesel heater. Hot water can be provided via the Webasto, immersion heater or calorifier from the engine.
The electrical system has a changeover switch to move from shoreline power to the hefty 3000W Vetus inverter. A Vetus battery charger charges domestic and starter batteries and a separate battery for the bow thruster. The combination of systems on the boat make it equally comfortable for cruising and leisure use or to make the most of its current unique liveaboard mooring.
Boat Safety Scheme Certificate is to October 2021.
