A full length six berth semi-traditional narrowboat from an award winning builder. The cocooned and therefore relatively silent running Beta engine provides plenty of power from the stern whilst the bow thruster (needs attention) provides ample sideways motion where needed from the bow. The deeper than usual windows provide plenty of light to appreciate the fit-out of Novae Vitae; the use of crown cut oak panelling with contrasting walnut trim; the cupboards and bulkheads are expertly executed with attractive rounded corners and the galley boasts Corian worktops throughout. Cruising on board is comfortable on the large semi-trad deck with steerer seats set at roof height on the rear bulkhead and if that wasn t enough there is tea making facilities at hand just inside the aft doors opposite the second toilet. Priced to reflect the current condition.
