We are selling a 57 foot Liverpool build narrowboat in good condition. The boat has unique artwork by James Mccarthy https://www.artstation.com/jimacc . One side has recently been restored (2019) and the other side is generally in good condition. The boat has an ISUZU 35 hp engine and recently (2019) overhauled gearbox. There are extensive fittings including a large stainless steel water tank, and an engine based calorifier (for hot water. Accommodation includes a forward double cabin with radiator and plenty of storage space. large bathroom with bath shower and toilet wash basin and storage.
Living room has single bed/sofa solid fuel stove with back boiler, double bed (converts to dining table with bench seats, oven, hob, wash basin and refrigerator. Mainly oak (solid and veneer with granite work surfaces.
Boat has been professionally surveyed (September this year). All hull readings are satisfactory. It is recommended that the hull be reblacked this year and attention paid to the steering gear and propeller possibly replaced. The boat steers and moves well but it would make sense to attend to these issues when next in dry dock. NB current safety certificate valid until September 2024
The artwork on this boat makes it quite unique and it has to be seen to be fully appreciated. Owning a boat hand painted by an artist is not for every one. The artist has indicated a willingness to retouch the original work and half of this was done last year.
The boat has been relisted because the buyer was unable to sell their accommodation. I have the structural survey and this can be seen by potential buyers. The hull has no issues but could do with reblacking in th next year.
Viewing can be arranged ring me. There is a possibility of moving the boat for the buyer.
