Barrow upon Soar Leicestershire UK|
A fantastic opportunity to purchase Penny, a 35ft traditional narrowboat situated in Barrow-upon-Soar.
Penny is a beautiful little boat that offers an ideal introduction to life afloat.
She is perfect for a single person or couple to live aboard or for a leisure boat to enjoy peaceful holidays or weekend adventures. I have been living on her for the last 2 1/2 years and have loved every minute but I feel now it’s time for a new adventure.
The interior has been fitted to a high standard so you can move straight on. The exterior needs a little freshen up but nothing the average person can’t do.
LAYOUT: SALOON : Entering the saloon from the bow it is approx 6ft with a compact solid fuel stove fitted to port (this heats the whole boat and its very cozy on a winters night). Opposite the stove is a comfy bench seat that simply converts into a double bed and also has good storage underneath. There is a single but spacious wardrobe and curtains with curtain rods. There are 2 240V sockets with 2 USB ports.
GALLEY : The galley is approx 8ft. This is fitted to starboard opposite the shower room and comprises of an attractive grey Formica worktop with a large stainless steel sink/drainer with great cupboard space underneath, LEC 240V fridge freezer, a ‘Statesman’ free standing cooker with 4 burner gas hob, grill and oven. 2 240V sockets and fitted curtains with curtain rods.
SHOWER ROOM : is approx 8ft and fitted to port with an attractive shower and compact but well designed wash basin with vanity unit underneath. There is also a Thetford Porta Potti.
BEDROOM: is approx 6ft with a 6ft by 4ft double bed with ample storage underneath. Under the bed is a clarifier hot water tank which runs either from running the engine or Emerson heater. There are 2 240V sockets, a HD TV on the wall and fitted curtains and curtain rods. All lights are LED.
ENGINE ROOM: contains a BMC 1.5 inboard Diesel engine, 2 electric batteries: 1 engine start 110ah and 1 domestic 220ah. There is a Victron energy multi compact inverter charger 12/1600/70 which I had fitted from new. There is also a bilge pump which I had fitted from new.
Penny was last blacked February 2018 and had a full survey in August 2017.She has a BSC until 2022.
When I purchased her she had had a complete refit starting with the insulation, new steel doors, new wiring, plumbing and pumps, new batteries, new clarifier hot water tank, new cold water tank (drinking water tank 70 gallons), gas locker and gas pipe, new kitchen, oven and log burner, new skin tank and water pipes.
Since I’ve owned her I’ve had fitted a new Victron energy multi compact inverter charger, new water pump, new bilge pump and a new chimney pot.
This boat is definitely a great buy! She has a great vibe and good living space. I have photos off the fit out which can be seen when viewing the boat.
