Opal Mist is a full length semi-traditional narrow boat with a cabin of just over 50ft. She is perfect as a family boat.
She was purpose built by the previous owner and only had one owner before we purchased her 6 years ago. She was an amazing home for us and our growing family.
The boat features a toddler room, with a toddler size bed and a magnetic whiteboard for the little ones to enjoy.
Over the last year we made a lot of improvements to the boat and we replaced a lot of key equipment. The electrical system has been replaced and upgraded (brand new inverter / charger unit, new battery bank and alternators), most water pumps have been replaced, the solid fuel stove has been repainted and refitted. The boat also has a new central heating system and a new toilet.

Main double bedroom features a bed that unfold across the boat. The bedroom is also fitted with a small wardrobe and plenty of storage underneath the bed.
The aft bedroom is a toddler room. It features a toddler bed, very large wardrobe, plenty of shelves and chests on wheels for easy and safe access. The room also has a magnetic whiteboard.
We also connected water and electricity to one of the cabinets, with the intention of fitting in a washing machine. We never got the washing machine, but it should be relatively easy to fit one in. Alternatively, the space can be easily turned into a full size bed.
The bathroom is fitted with an acrylic hip bath 41in x 23in with shower over. It has a brand new shower pump.
Toilet is a Sealand pump-out toilet with fresh water flush (the boat has a separate 450 litre water tank for flush water).
The galley houses a combined fridge and freezer (Zanussi, 230V), microwave and a full size gas cooker with oven and grill.
The saloon features a built-in 4 seater L-shape settee which unfolds into a double bed. There is an option of a small or large table on the Desmo legs.
There is a Beckton Bunny solid fuel stove in the saloon.
