Firefly is a beautifully presented 57’ft “go anywhere” size cruiser stern narrowboat built by Staffordshire Narrowboats in 2012 and fitted out by Peter Doyle. She is in excellent condition both internally and externally with the current owners instigating a number of improvements in the two years in which it has been their much loved floating home.
The very spacious cruiser stern (with mood lighting under the taff rail) leads into the bedroom at the stern. This has a fixed double which extends to provide a very comfortable 6ft 8in x 5ft berth. There is loads of storage including a single and double wardrobe and plenty of cupboards.
The bathroom is off corridor and fully tiled with a quadrant style shower, the electric flush pump out loo (with guage) and a stylish glass basin over a shelving unit. The walk through galley follows and is very well equipped with a 5 burner gas hob, a double oven, a microwave, seperate fridge and freezer and a compact washing machine. Again plenty of storage is provided and there are side hatches to both port and starboard.
The saloon contains the AGA solid fuel stove, a 28” LG Smart TV and space for either a sofa/sofabed or a couple of captains chairs. At the front of the boat is a lovely raised U-shaped dinette with a couple of demountable tables (neatly stored under the shelf opposite) which will provide lovely views out onto the canal whilst dining. This also converts into an additional double berth if required. There is a small well deck forward of the dinette and storage for the two 13kg gas bottles.
She is propelled by the ever popular Isuzu 42 which is easily accessible under the large cruiser deck. 230v is from either the landline or the 3kw Victron inverter. The five batteries were all new in 2019 and there are also three 100w solar panels which are also a recent addition to the boat. She is centrally heated by the Eberspacher diesel fired boiler and hot water is from either the engine, the central heating or the new immersion heater (when on landline).
Firefly NZ really is a cracking boat and will make someone a wonderful floating home or family holiday boat.
