Melody is a well equipped 40’ Springer narrowboat powered by a Perkins 4108 Diesel. This boat is an unfinished project with the majority of work now being complete but requiring some finishing. A new steel cabin has recently been fitted and expertly lined in oak veneer with 25mm Celotex insulation underneath. She was blacked earlier this year with 5 coats of Bitumen. The cabin has also recently been repainted but does require some finishing. A survey from 2018 is available to view.
This vessel has a reverse layout, entering from the stern is an open plan galley / saloon. The galley is equipped with 12v fridge/freezer and freestanding gas cooker. The saloon is open allowing the use of freestanding furniture. A solid fuel stove is centrally fitted.
The bathroom requires finishing, it is currently fitted with a Thetford Swivel cassette toilet, modern quadrant shower, heated towel rail and plumbing in place for a handbasin.
A fixed double bed is at the bow athwartship with plenty of storage underneath. The bedroom also provides a good size wardrobe.
As well as the solid fuel stove, heating is provided by a Webasto diesel central heating system which, along with the engine also feeds the calorifier for hot water.
Melody has a good electrical system with 240V landline, Sterling 2500W inverter/charger, USB sockets, galvanic isolator and 3 domestic batteries.
She has a BSS to October 2022
