Zu Zu is a cruiser style narrowboat, based on a shell from a respected boatbuilding dynasty. The overall length fits comfortably within the canals notional go anywhere limit with propulsion by a Beta B38 diesel engine. The fitout has been carried out by her owner and there are a few finishing touches required. Heating is provided by a solid fuel stove, with the shower room towel rail heated from the engine, but it would be possible to fit a central heating system to give all round warmth. There are two separate seating areas, one forward with a sofa bed and the aft with bench seating doubling up as a second dining area, which of course forms another double. The galley features hygienic stainless steel worktop and the usual fridge and cooking facilities. So to sum up here is an opportunity to purchase a boat on which you can stamp your own identity, carrying out improvements at your own pace whilst enjoying what the canals have to offer.
