New Dawn is a 37.5ft Narrowboat recently refitted and powered by a well maintained Lister ST2 that has been recently re-built. This boat will get you there and is happy against rivers and has done many tidal cossings. She is a perfect boat for two people and is ready to go. This boat has had a cabin refit and complete new shower room fitted. A Torgem multi fuel burner provides a beautiful cosy heat.
To maintain the hull, a narrowboat should be taken out of the water for hull inspection and blacking every two years. New Dawn has been dry docked every two years where the hull is inspected and three coats of blacking applied. During the docking the anodes are inspected and replaced if needed. We will be docking her once again next week.

Our final job on New Dawn will be varnishing the floor, sensible to be done last. We are currently re-blacking the hull and whilst she is out of the water would be a good time to view this workhorse of a boat.
Lister ST2 in fantastic condition. Recently rebuilt, see details.
