If you can t quite make up your mind which style of narrowboat shell, trad or semi-trad, would suit you best, well this boat could provide the perfect answer. Nina has a large sliding rear hatch which covers the semi-trad deck, allowing seating for the crew to accompany the steerer on sunny days, but when the weather is not at its best it can be closed leaving a small hatch for the helmsman. A cratchboard and cover has been removed as they were showing signs of age, but are available if required. Nina is based on a shell by R&D Fabrications and features their slipper stern design. From the towpath she looks like any other narrowboat, but the sloping uxter plate (counter plate) is said by many R&D owners to improve handling especially when going astern. Cabin heating is provided by a cosy solid fuel stove in the saloon and gas blown air heating to the aft of the cabin. Two 125Ah maintenance free batteries are trickle charged by the 80w solar panel on the roof. Presently the boat is only fitted with a landline, but it should not prove too difficult to add an inverter/charger and extra 230V sockets. A nicely presented vessel, ideal for extended vacations.
