Trad canal boatDRIFTER 50

FEATURE BOAT -DRIFTER 5050ft 4in Cowroast & Kate Boats /Colecraft Engineering trad. Lister LPW3 Canalstar diesel. In a world of spiralling prices, you might think it impossible to find a 50ft narrowboat based on a Colecraft shell on which to start your time afloat. Drifter features a well thought out but unusual lay-out (on a trad), with a rear galley enabling the cook to remain in contact with the steerer whilst cruising. The spacious, forward open plan saloon/dining area benefits from very large (72in by 30in) windows and a glazed front bulkhead, creating a room which is not only extremely bright and airy, but gives superb views out on three sides. 2 berths: permanent double; shower, portable cassette wc; solid fuel stove; gas cooking 12V fridge; 1.8kW modified sine wave inverter. 1995.
