FEATURE BOAT -ENTERPRISE NO 2 50ft 3in semi-trad narrowboat for sale with 4 berths: permanent double, double on L-shape dinette; shower, cassette wc; solid fuel stove, compact diesel central heating; gas cooking, microwave, 230V fridge, washing machine; 3kW inverter. Enterprise No. 2 features the combined efforts of an Alexander Boats built shell and an interior fitout by the vastly experienced John Lillie of Riverview Narrowboats - a long standing partnership that produced many fine quality boats. The almost immaculate state of the engine bay is always a good indicator of the high level of attention that has been paid to her up keep, and is reflected in the general internal condition of the boat. Housed within the engine bay there is a hire-operators’ favourite 42hp Isuzu engine, a battery bank of superior AGM batteries that are charged via a Sterling alternator controller. Built in 2005. Change in family circumstances force the sale.

At just over 60ft, and with a 15mm baseplate for longevity, Tapestry is a chunky well built boat that gives plenty of cabin space with up to six berths in three separate cabins, which makes her ideal to invite friends aboard for sociable cruising.

Access through the boat is made easy by double swinging doors (will open in either direction). Propulsion is by an Isuzu 42 diesel engine. Shell built in 2009, first launched 2012. Selling due to health issues.

BLACKBIRD55ft 2in semi-trad narrowboat for sale with 2 berths: permanent crossbed double; shower, composting wc; solid fuel stove, compact diesel central heating; gas cooking, 12V fridge, washing machine; 2.1kW inverter. The Lockheed SR-71 “Blackbird” is an American reconnaissance aircraft designed for stealth, so Blackbird is a very apt name for this boat. The striking black exterior features windows only on the starboard side, so if moored with this side to the canal, the interior has a very private feel. Most boats today are fitted out in a combination of hard and softwoods but Blackbird certainly breaks the mould, as painted panels and black vinyl flooring are used throughout, creating a modern, minimalist feel. A major benefit of this style must be that day to day cleaning and care will be kept to a minimum. Built and fitted out by Stillwater Narrowboats in 2010, Blackbird has a Beta B43 diesel engine. Owner moving ashore.

Unashamed luxury for two in a well presented, compact narrowboat. Fruit of the Vine (chosen to be featured in Canal Boat magazine in December 2010) is the product of Beacon Boats, who were a well respected company with a small output allowing their narrowboats to be constructed to a high standard, but don’t just take our word for it, visit their website to read testimonials from owners of other Beacon Boats. Based on a well proportioned XR&D shell with it’s ‘slipper stern’, which produces a reduced wash astern and as stated by the present owner, has the ability to turn on a sixpence. Built in 2010 with a Canaline 42 engine. Owners hanging up their windlasses.

Of special note is the impressive stainless steel exhaust guards. Handling is aided by a bow thruster, making manoeuvres in difficult situations a pleasure.

THE LADY ALICE 55ft 0in cruiser launch style narrowboat for sale with 2 berths: permanent double; shower, pump-out wc; compact diesel central heating; gas cooking, 230V fridge; 1.2kW inverter. If you think all narrow beam boats tend to look the same, The Lady Alice might just make you have to think again. If you like boats that are a little different and stand out from the crowd, then The Lady Alice could fit the bill, as there are only eight reportedly built to this design. The bow and stern profiles are reminiscent of a Thames slipper-launch, whilst when viewed from the side, she has the look of the kind of craft used by directors of canal companies surveying their watery kingdom. The internal, contemporary REVERSE LAYOUT with its aft saloon is ready for furniture of your choice, be it comfortable chairs or instead extra accommodation could be provided by a sofa bed. Over the last four years the present owner has carried out a rolling program of improvements and upgrades, creating the boat you see today. Shell by Nick Branson with fit-out by first owner in 1990. Powered by an Isuzu 3 cylinder engine. Owners have insufficient time to use the boat.

Kerf has to be described as in need of some TLC, if you are handy with a paintbrush, the exterior could once again be brought back to life. The Boatman’s cabin could have a range installed and needs cushions for the side and cross beds. The engine room has scope for addition of cupboards and other storage, but it is not all doom and gloom as this work could be carried out as time allowed. Fitted with a Lister LPWS4 diesel engine and a Nobel bow thruster. Built in 2000. Selling to move ashore.

TWO BOB 49ft 10in trad narrowboat for sale with 4 berths: permanent double, double on sofa bed; shower, Thetford cassette wc; solid fuel stove, compact diesel central heating; gas cooking, 12V fridge; 1.8kW inverter. Evans and Son may now not be a name familiar with many, but the principle builder was like Heywood and his family connections led to the current recognised name of Tyler Wilson boatbuilders. Originally 40ft, she was lengthened in Nuneaton to form the fine traditional lines seen today with the Evans & Son take on a Josher style bow, plus replica rivets, recessed cabin side panels and scrolled cants: this is unusual for a short boat.

On a home mooring a landline can be used (if available) and when out cruising power is supplied via the inverter, ideal for charging mobile phones or laptops etc. Built in 1995 by Stenson Boatbuilders, Elm has Lister LPWS3 diesel engine and was fitted out by Midland Canal Centre. Owners bought a bigger boat.

WIDE BEAM BOATS

Partner marinas

DUNVEGAN 48ft 7in x 10ft 6in wide beam Dutch barge for sale with 4 berths: 2 permanent doubles (1 in forward cabin, 1 in aft cabin); shower, pump-out wc; diesel stove, diesel blown air heater; gas cooking, 230V fridge, washing machine; 5kW cocooned diesel generator, 1.5kW inverter, solar panels. Few inland boat builders were better suited to creating replica Dutch barges than French & Peel, who worked as shipbuilders for the long established shipwrights Richard Dunston, before setting up in their own right. The company continued shipbuilding practices, so that craft were built on ring frames; and Dunvegan has a vee-shaped hull rather than a flat bottom, which was grit blasted in 2001, with regular blackings in Comastic since. For those low bridges, and high summer days, the iroko upper wheel house is nicely demountable. The craft has nicely balanced lines, with aft cabin, providing comfortable accommodation for two couples. The powerful 67hp Perkins/Sabre diesel engine, aided by a Vetus bow thruster, has proved ideally suited for the owners extensive cruising of continental Europe waterways, including France, Germany, Holland and Belgium.

SAPPHIRE IN STEEL 55ft 0in x 10ft 6in wide beam cruiser narrowboat for sale with 4 berths: permanent double, double on sofa bed; shower, cassette wc; solid fuel stove, compact diesel central heating; gas cooking, 230V combined fridge/freezer, washing machine; 2kW inverter, 3.5kW engine driven generator. Whilst wide beam boats are especially suitable for full time live on use, there are still many navigable miles of canals to explore and if you are used to narrow beam accommodation, the second you step aboard you will be amazed at just how much more roomy they feel. For instance, the full sized double bed with its ex-church pew foot board, is situated across the beam of the boat, allowing access from either side without interrupting passage through the cabin. Built and fitted out by M&P Steelcraft in 2006, Sapphire in Steel has a Barrus Shire 50 engine. Owners moved ashore.

BOADICEA60ft 7in x 10ft 10in (reported) wide beam Dutch barge for sale with 5 berths: permanent double, permanent single, double on sofa bed; shower over bath, cassette wc; solid fuel stove, compact diesel central heating, 230V underfloor heating; gas cooking, microwave, 12V fridge, washer/dryer; 2.1kW inverter, 3.7kW generator. Here is a rare opportunity to own a characterful replica Dutch barge. Now you may think that owning a craft like this would have a very restricted cruising range but situated in the right area, there are many miles of wide canals and rivers which can be explored, and Boadicea should even be suitable for the odd coastal trip. The powerful 90hp Perkins diesel engine provides the necessary thrust, whilst the hardwood wheelhouse (which raises and lowers hydraulically) gives all round superb visibility and at the end of a hard days cruising why not put your feet up and relax in this airy space with a glass (or mug!) of something warming. Equally Boadicea would prove ideal for static residential use with her present mooring available for a suitable applicant. The separate aft cabin would make a great office, studio or childs bedroom. Steelwork by Belpro Engineering Services and fitted out by present and previous owners. Boat built 2003. Selling to move ashore.

There is even another two berths available on the well thought out extending L-shape settee.

INKWENKWEZI 58ft 0in semi-trad narrow beam Dutch barge for sale with 4 berths: permanent double, double on sofa bed; shower over bath, pump-out wc; diesel range; diesel cooking, washer/dryer; 3kW inverter, 3.5kW engine driven generator, solar panels. Year round the cabin is kept warm and dry by a range cooker which is run on kerosene (cheaper than diesel) in this GAS FREE boat. The REVERSE LAYOUT conveniently puts the galley at the stern, not only ideal when on the move by keeping the cook in contact with the steerer, but also provides plenty of ventilation when meals are being prepared. Narrowboats with portholes can sometimes have rather gloomy interiors but this certainly is not the case here, painted surfaces complimented by light oak and two sets of side doors complete with internal clear removable panels, create a bright cabin with a spacious feel. The midships bathroom is ideally situated between the forward master bedroom and the saloon with its comfortable sofa bed providing private access at night when guests come aboard. Built in 2009 by Legard Bridge Boats and fitted with a Barrus diesel engine and bow thruster. Owners moved ashore.

SIRIUS 50ft 5in trad narrowboat for sale with 4 berths: permanent double, double on sofa bed; shower over bath, cassette wc; solid fuel stove; gas cooking, 12V fridge; landline. Sirius, at 50ft 5in in length, is capable of exploring the entire connected canal and river network with ample motive power provided by her Thornycroft 33hp engine. The accommodation, although primarily for two, has scope for two guests to accompany you on your travels. Based on a sailaway from well thought of Stoke-on-Trent Boatbuilders, the fit-out was completed by the first owner. There is scope to improve Sirius (and this is reflected in the price) as time allows, although serviceable, her outside looks could benefit from a lick of paint and if you are handy with a paintbrush then the cost should not be prohibitive. The electrical system could be upgraded with the addition of an inverter/charger and a larger battery bank, to allow use of all the modern mains voltage equipment that many boaters require when away from a landline connection. Built in 1990, the owners are hanging up their windlasses.

Hard wearing bamboo timber (a renewable resource that has become one of the most important alternatives to tropical hardwoods in recent years, and not to be confused with garden canes) is used throughout the fitout, which provides an attractive and durable finish.

SHIRAZ 61 61ft 5in trad narrowboat for sale with 4 berths: permanent double, double on Pullman dinette; shower over bath, cassette wc; compact diesel central heating; gas cooking, microwave, 12V fridge, washing machine; 2kW inverter, solar panel. Shiraz was designed as a liveaboard for the original owner, with lots of storage, but has been used as a holiday boat by the last two owners.

The fit out uses oak facings and oak trim throughout in typical NT Boats style and quality, with recent modernisation of the bathroom. Propulsion is delivered by possibly the most popular diesel engine ever installed in narrowboats, the Beta BV1903 (now labelled the B43), with a low number of running hours for the age of craft. Shell built by Colecraft Engineering in 2002. Owners selling due to ill health.

They then went on to have the engine removed and painted, before re-installing back into the newly painted engine compartment, even the well and cruiser deck lockers have benefited from the same treatment. The interior has also been cherished and is in an almost immaculate condition. Sagramor was built in 1995 by Liverpool Boats and has a Lister LPWS4 engine.

TAPESTRY 60ft 5in trad narrowboat for sale with Boatman's cabin and 6 berths: permanent double, double on L-shape seating, cross double in BMC bed box; shower, pump-out wc; compact diesel central heating, solid fuel range; gas cooking, 12V fridge; 1.5kW inverter.

The engine room has scope for addition of cupboards and other storage, but it is not all doom and gloom as this work could be carried out as time allowed. Fitted with a Lister LPWS4 diesel engine and a Nobel bow thruster. Built in 2000. Selling to move ashore.

As a residential boat, Against All Odds has copious amounts of storage throughout including four wardrobes.

POLLYANNA 29ft 8in cruiser narrowboat for sale with 2 berths: double on convertible bench seating; shower, cassette wc; solid fuel stove; gas cooking, 12V fridge; 2kW stand alone inverter. They say good things come in small packages and this is certainly the case with Pollyanna. Just think of all the pluses - being able to turn the boat without having to find a winding hole and ease of finding mooring spots in popular places, to name just two, and then there’s the economical ownership costs. The present owners have enjoyed a couple of years of leisure cruising aboard Pollyanna, but a house move forces a reluctant sale, so it is now time for someone to carry on where they left off. In a boat of this length, careful planning has to go into the cabin layout, making the most of the available space as is proven here. Built in 2010 by Cheshire Boats, Pollyanna has a Vetus M3.28 diesel engine. House move forces sale.
