Hebden Bridge West Yorkshire UK|
We are selling our beautiful boat due to relocation. This 56 foot craft has everything needed to comfortably live aboard, or would also make an excellent holiday boat. The size means this boat can go on any canal around the English and Welsh system whilst at the same time being spacious and comfortable. This boat has been lovingly fitted out in pine and oak with keen attention to detail. If you’re looking for a boat that has loads of character and feels unusually spacious, this could be for you.
Hull: A survey was carried out in 2017 confirming the thickness and soundness of the hull. This survey is available to browse during boat viewings. The boat was also blacked at this time, and the necessary anodes were replaced. The hull has never been over plated.
Paintwork: The boat was repainted in 2017
Electrics: Two solar panels provide ample charge to run lights and electrical sockets for about half of the year. During the other half, the batteries can be topped up by running the reliable Lister Petter engine. There is shore line power as well as an inverter. A number of 12V and 240V sockets can be found throughout the boat. A fridge also runs off the 12v system.
Engine: We have travelled around Cheshire, Yorkshire and beyond on this boat and the Lister Petter engine has never let us down. It has been regularly serviced and the alternator belt has been recently replaced.
Layout: The cruiser stern means that friends and family can join you at the back. Please see the photos for a plan showing the full layout. The main living space feels very spacious compared to your average narrowboat due to it being open plan with no fixed furniture. A dining table and double sofa bed can be erected then packed away.
Heating: A Morso squirrel stove creates a wonderfully cosy environment throughout the year. A radiator in the bathroom heats up when the engine is on, so you could potentially enjoy a hot bath in a warm bathroom after a long day’s cruise!
Hot water: an instant gas water heater provides hot water to the kitchen sink, and to the bath and sink in the bathroom. There is also a calorafier which provides a small tank’s worth of hot water after the engine has been running for a time.
Viewing and location: The boat is at its moorings in Hebden Bridge, West Yorkshire. Please send us a message to arrange a viewing.
