FEATURE BOAT -JAYNAR 48ft 4in trad narrowboat for sale with 4 berths: permanent double, double on convertible bench seat; shower, cassette wc; solid fuel stove, diesel blown air heater, gas fired radiant heater; gas cooking, gas fridge; 0.8kW inverter. Jaynar is an opportunity to purchase a narrowboat based on a sought after Colecraft shell, at a price that should not break the bank. If you are keen on DIY, there is great scope for improvement as time goes by. The aft utility cabin was originally meant to be used to house the cassette toilet, but the current owners preferred the wc to be placed in the shower room. This cabin would also be ideal as a small workshop area, and with upgrades to the electrical system, such as a larger inverter or the installation of a landline, it may be possible to fit a washing machine and associated plumbing. Jaynar was built in 1990 and has a BMC 1.8 diesel engine. Selling as owners have bought another boat.

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.

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. The exterior paintwork is faded and in need of some tlc, but this is reflected in the price. Built in 2008 and fitted with a Beta JD3 engine in its own engine room. Selling due to insufficient time to use the boat.

AIRSHIP ONE 64ft 0in cruiser narrowboat for sale with 4 berths: permanent crossbed double, double on sofa bed; shower, pump-out wc; solid fuel stove, compact diesel central heating; gas cooking, microwave, 12V fridge; 3kW inverter, solar panel.

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.

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.

FORTUNA 60ft 1in (plus 5in fender stud) semi-trad narrowboat for sale with 4 berths: permanent crossbed double, double on Pullman dinette; shower, pump-out wc; solid fuel stove, compact diesel central heating; gas cooking, microwave, 12V fridge, washing machine; 2kW inverter, 3.5kW engine driven generator. Fortuna is believed to be based on a shell by R&D Fabrications, with a fit-out by Corbett Narrowboats, and features a ‘slipper stern’ design, from the towpath she looks like any other narrowboat, but the sloping uxter plate (counter plate) is said by many owners to improve handling especially when going astern. Semi-trad in design, which is said by many to be the best of all worlds, she appears to have a traditional profile but stepping aboard the large deck not only allows the steerer to be kept company with seating for the crew, but also provides some protection in inclement weather. The specification makes Fortuna ideal for long term cruising or full time residential use. Built in 2003 and having a Beta 38 diesel engine. Selling due to a lack of use.

ANGONOKA 60ft 5in 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, 12V fridge, washing machine; 1.5kW inverter, solar panels. Nigel Moore, who is NSM Narrowboats with many years’ experience fitting out hire boats, then turned his hand to the production of private craft. The steelwork is by the accomplished Steve Lambon, who previously worked for John Pinder’s yard and has been building boats for over 25 years. Angonoka was created as an ideal long term cruising/live aboard narrowboat and has provided a comfortable home for her present owners for 10 years, whilst cruising the canal network extensively. Built in 2008 and fitted with a Beta B43 diesel engine. Owners moved ashore.

SHIRAZ 57 57ft 0in trad narrowboat for sale with 2 berths: permanent double; shower, pump-out wc; solid fuel stove, compact diesel central heating; gas cooking, 12V fridge; 1.6kW inverter. From the outside, Shiraz is not immediately recognisable as an Aqualine, although the inside is with granite worktops and clever pull-out storage spaces in the galley. Easy access wide steps to the stern avoid the often tight access for a trad stern boat, and enhance the bedroom, which features additional storage cupboards above the bed. Powered by the trusted Isuzu engine with low running hours for the age. Built 2004. Selling due to lack of use.

JESSOP 54ft 4in trad narrowboat for sale with 4 berths: permanent double, double on extending settee in saloon; shower over bath, pump-out wc; solid fuel stove, compact diesel central heating; gas cooking, 12V fridge; 1.6kW inverter, solar panels. Traditional style narrowboat of convenient go-anywhere length, with the canals’ most sought after engine, based on a shell from a highly experienced and respected builder, Colecraft, who can trace their continuous output back to 1974, with the interior by the equally thought of Barry Hawkins. A glorious Gardner 2LW, producing a mellow exhaust note, was totally rebuilt before installation, and it is offset to port to allow easy passage through the aft cabin. Of special note is the impressive stainless steel exhaust guards. Handling is aided by a bow thruster, making manoeuvres in difficult situations a pleasure. Built in 1999 and being sold as owners are hanging up their windlasses.

An exceptionally well designed boat, fitted out to a similarly high standard by DB Boatfitting, more versatile accommodation would be hard to find. The berths can be arranged in a multitude of different ways, all having private access to a loo in the night! The open front well deck and semi-trad stern means that there is ample space outside for everyone when cruising with the whole family or friends. Based on a shell built in 2001 by JL Pinder & Son with a Shire 2000 diesel engine. Owners buying a bigger boat through ABNB.

Originating from the same area of the country as R&D Fabrications, Polar Narrowboats look very similar in design and execution of steelwork is very much on par with R&D. Steelwork on Nauti-Lass is highlighted by the excellent paintwork which has been meticulously maintained. Inside the layout is traditional with bedroom aft of the shower room and saloon situated at the forward end of the accommodation. The ergonomic galley is large and fitted with ample amounts of storage; perfect for liveaboard or long term cruising. To the forward end of the saloon the steps provide in-built storage for cruising essentials. Fitted out in 2009 by Grantham Bridge Boat Services, Nauti-Lass has a Beta 43 engine.

KERF 61ft 10in trad with BMC narrowboat for sale with 4 berths: permanent double, cross spacious single in BMC bed box, child's single in BMC; shower, cassette wc; solid fuel stove, gas central heating; gas cooking, 230V combined fridge/freezer; 1kW inverter. Norton Canes Boatbuilders is a direct descendant of M E Braine, who were involved in restoring and repairing working boats and were regarded as the aristocrat of narrowboat builders in the `70s and `80s with the tradition then carried on by Graham Edgson. 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.

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.

Looking for a liveaboard?
Consider a 70ft for more space.
You can cruise the majority of the system and live in comfort!

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. Sadly, the paintwork on Shiraz is in need of a bit of attention and the price reflects this fact. 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.

ESMERALDA 62ft 4in tug style narrowboat for sale with Boatman's cabin and 4 berths: permanent double, cross double in BMC; bath with shower over, pump-out wc; solid fuel range; diesel range, ceramic 2 burner hob, washer; 3kW inverter, 6kW diesel generator. Esmeralda has the makings of a lovely boat, the owner chose Colecraft to build him a shell to his own design for him to fit-out during his retirement but unfortunately due to other commitments, his plans never quite came to fruition. The majority of the difficult work has been carried out, the desirable vintage Lister JP3 engine is fully installed and running and there is much of the equipment on board this GAS FREE boat ready to complete the fit-out. If you are looking for a project, handy with basic tools and a paintbrush but still wanting to cruise whilst carrying out the work, then Esmeralda could become the boat of your dreams. Built in 2002 and fitted with a bow thruster. Owner unable to complete fit-out due to illness.

Propulsion is by the Vetus diesel engine, which has low running hours on the clock for a boat of this age.

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.

If you are wondering where the name Just Troshin comes from, it is a term local to Norfolk, believed to have its roots in agriculture and means to move about. Another thought is that it seems to mean similar to an Australian aboriginal ‘walkabout’. Built in 2004 by HT Fabrications and fitted out by Nimbus Narrowboats. Selling due to a change in circumstances.

The popular Barrus Shire diesel engine is well matched for a boat of this length. Built in 2007. Owners retiring from cruising.

This REVERSE LAYOUT boat has a separate cabin at the rear which lends itself to many uses, possibly a second sleeping area with the addition of a sofa bed, or equally suitable as an office. Built and fitted out by Northwich Boat Co in 2007. Motive power by Beta B50 diesel engine. Selling to move ashore.

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.

BOADICEA 60ft 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.

LEONARD 57ft 1in trad narrowboat for sale with 6 berths: permanent double, double on Pullman dinette, double on convertible bench seat; shower over bath, pump-out wc; solid fuel stove, compact diesel central heating; gas cooking, 12V fridge; landline. Stenson Boatbuilders, based at Midland Canal Centre, have been involved in the sphere of constructing narrowboats for the canal leisure sector longer than most, they began in 1986. The owners from new have maintained Leonard to a high standard, with the exterior paintwork glistening in the sunlight and the crisp interior that certainly does not look its age. With all the onboard electrical equipment modern boaters enjoy, Leonard could benefit from the installation of an inverter/charger, which should not prove too much of a challenge to fit. Leonard has a Barrus diesel engine and was built in 1998. Selling due to insufficient time to enjoy the boat.

Her accommodation is spacious, with the combined saloon and dining area leaving space for the free-standing sofa and dining compendium. Built in 2008. Ill health forces a reluctant sale.

TENACIOUS 59ft 1in motor butty narrowboat for sale with Boatman's cabin and 4 berths: 2 singles, cross double in Boatman's cabin bed box; shower over bath, cassette wc; blown air diesel heater, solid fuel range; gas cooking, microwave, gas/12V/230V fridge; 7kW diesel generator. Norton Canes Boatbuilders are known to have built some of the finest shells afloat, and Tenacious was designed and commissioned by a vintage marine engine specialist, to enable him to travel the canal system supplying engine parts. Tenacious is truly a traditional boat suitable for anyone who dreams of becoming a canal trader, having a central cabin, with roll-up curtain sides and space to display your wares. Self-propelled by a single cylinder Russell Newbery engine with the pleasing, mellow exhaust note, she is fitted with a hydraulic drive system providing good headroom throughout the boat. However, the engine size is such that she is really designed to be a butty to a motor. Built in 1997. Selling due to bereavement. Tenacious could be the butty boat to Titan.

TITAN 57ft 10in trad narrowboat for sale with Boatman's cabin and 5 berths: permanent double, double on L-shape dinette, single on Boatman's cabin seat; shower over bath, cassette wc; solid fuel stove, solid fuel range; gas cooking, gas/12V/230V fridge; 5.2kW diesel generator. Titan’s shell was produced by Canal Transport Services at their Norton Canes yard in 2006. Her fit-out was completed over the next six years to a very high standard by MG Boatfitting. Note the flowing lines and quality of her steelwork (beauty is not just skin deep however, the underwater section with its long swims should guarantee good handling capabilities). The main talking point has to be the magnificent Gardner 3LW marine diesel engine that sits majestically in its own cabin and produces the kind of mellow exhaust note that many boat owners can only dream of. Selling due to bereavement. Titan could be the motor boat to Tenacious.

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.

JAYNAR 48ft 4in trad narrowboat for sale with 4 berths: permanent double, double on convertible bench seat; shower, cassette wc; solid fuel stove, diesel blown air heater, gas fired radiant heater; gas cooking, gas fridge; 0.8kW inverter. Jaynar is an opportunity to purchase a narrowboat based on a sought after Colecraft shell, at a price that should not break the bank. If you are keen on DIY, there is great scope for improvement as time goes by. The aft utility cabin was originally meant to be used to house the cassette toilet, but the current owners preferred the wc to be placed in the shower room. This cabin would also be ideal as a small workshop area, and with upgrades to the electrical system, such as a larger inverter or the installation of a landline, it may be possible to fit a washing machine and associated plumbing. Jaynar was built in 1990 and has a BMC 1.8 diesel engine. Selling as owners have bought another boat.

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.

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. The exterior paintwork is faded and in need of some tlc, but this is reflected in the price. Built in 2008 and fitted with a Beta JD3 engine in its own engine room. Selling due to insufficient time to use the boat.

ESMERALDA 62ft 4in tug style narrowboat with Boatman's cabin for sale with 4 berths: permanent double, cross double in BMC; bath with shower over, pump-out wc; solid fuel range; diesel range, ceramic 2 burner hob, washer, 3kW inverter, 6kW diesel generator. Esmeralda has the makings of a lovely boat, the owner chose Colecraft to build him a shell to his own design for him to fit-out during his retirement but unfortunately due to other commitments, his plans never quite came to fruition. The majority of the difficult work has been carried out, the desirable vintage Lister JP3 engine is fully installed and running and there is much of the equipment on board this GAS FREE boat ready to complete the fit-out. If you are looking for a project, handy with basic tools and a paintbrush but still wanting to cruise whilst carrying out the work, then Esmeralda could become the boat of your dreams. Built in 2002 and fitted with a bow thruster. Owner unable to complete fit-out due to illness.

KERF 61ft 10in trad with BMC narrowboat for sale with 4 berths: permanent double, cross spacious single in BMC bed box, child's single in BMC; shower, cassette wc; solid fuel stove, gas central heating; gas cooking, 230V combined fridge/freezer; 1kW inverter. Norton Canes Boatbuilders is a direct descendant of M E Braine, who were involved in restoring and repairing working boats and were regarded as the aristocrat of narrowboat builders in the `70s and `80s with the tradition then carried on by Graham Edgson. 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.

TREKERRA 62ft 3in semi-trad narrowboat for sale with 6 berths: permanent double, 2 permanent singles, double on sofa bed; shower, pump-out wc; solid fuel stove, compact diesel central heating; gas cooking, 12V fridge; 1.6kW inverter. The shell, built by one of the canals’ most popular builders of the nineties, Evans and Son, has been fitted out to a high standard by Stephen Pearce, with emphasis on comfort and function rather than flamboyant detail. The fit out is in sapele with contrasting trim and ceiling finished in cream vinyl, which breaks up the darker wood and allows for natural light to diffuse throughout the cabin, all from a craftsman who came to narrowboats from yacht-building. There is admittedly a downside, the exterior paintwork is past its prime and would benefit from some attention. Built in 2000 and fitted with a Barrus Shire 2002 diesel engine. Selling due to a lack of use.

With a bespoke shell from the highly reputable Tyler/Wilson stable, Dottie M upon her completion was chosen to represent Warble as their 2002 Crick show boat and has to date lost none of her splendour. Her present owners have had the hull and bottom plate zinc coated before being epoxy blacked, whilst the superstructure was re-painted in 2017. Both her sets of owners have maintained her to a high standard, evidence of which is clear throughout the boat. A smooth running 43hp Beta engine provides motive power, which combined with a hydraulic bow thruster should make cruising and handling a pleasure. Built in 2001.
