The Ship Brokers team are delighted to offer this fantastic Narrowboat for sale. She”s a 56ft traditional narrowbeam called “The Colonel”, currently moored on the Paddington arm of the Grand Union Canal in Central London.As you step down into the cratch of the boat and proceed through the front doors you”re immediately in a spacious and well finished living room area with wood burner, sofa and TV.Once you”ve passed through the living room you”re into the well-fitted kitchen with worktops either side as can be seen in the pictures we have provided. Along the ceiling there are both spotlights and remote controlled colour mood lights to help add some extra flair to the white interior.The next room you come into is the bathroom complete with a bath/shower radiator and toilet. The sink and vanity unit is yet to be fitted but it is plumbed in ready to be completed.Next it”s in to the bedroom which has a single day bed that folds out into a double. This means that there is plenty of room to get around the boat during the day.As you pass by the bed there is another smaller room area that is currently used as an office. There is both desk space and wardrobe storage which helps to make this boat a great livaboard oppurtunity.Finally there is a doorway leading into the engine room where the BMC engine is housed and started from. It”s also where the batteries are kept and the rear door for the access to the tiller at the steering position.She”s a 1981 boat but has recently been subject to a complete, bare shell professional refit last year and re-launched in June 2017.The work during the refit includes:
The Colonel offers a great opportunity to own your own, comfortable, warm and cosy home in central London for under £40k. There is still a small snag list of small jobs that need completing but these are minimal but this is generally small cosmetic finishing issues.We have a full gallery of images that document the refit work as well as a large pack of receipts and paperwork.Her previous owner bought her in April 2015, completely refitted her in 2016 and relaunched her in 2017, he then lived on her whilst he worked in the City. The reason for the sale is simply a change in work circumstances and an opportunity to buy a flat came up forcing a reluctant sale.Viewing strictly by appointment only. To arrange a viewing please call 023 9298 4666 or email firstname.lastname@example.org and we”d be happy to help.Please note, the boat does not come with a mooring and is currently on a continuous cruiser license. The Ship Brokers can offer a three month warranty on the engine and we can assist where possible with the delivery of the boat.
