An excellent example of a much sought after SM Hudson narrowboat, Ecky Thump has all the bells and whistles that one expects from this pedigree. From the distinctive Hudson bow, low deck, replica rivets, pigeon boxes, signature bulkhead rings and 15mm baseplate, to the substantial oak fit-out, this boat was certainly built to last. There is a magnificent vintage (1936) Lister JP2M engine, rebuilt in 2011 by Marine Power Services, situated in its own engine room forward of the Boatman's cabin, both of which are traditionally scumbled and painted. Forward of the engine room, is a walk-through, modern shower room, leading to the master bedroom with permanent double. There is a fully equipped galley with the usual gas cooking, along with a microwave, fridge and washing machine. The saloon at the fore has a comfy sofa and a drop table for dining at. Central heating is via a Mikuni diesel boiler to radiators and a towel rail, with additional warmth from a solid fuel stove in the saloon and an Epping range in the back cabin. 230V power when not connected to the shore is provided by a 2.5kW Sterling inverter/charger, with two 370W solar panels keeping the batteries topped up.
