April Rose

A 41ft 1983 Colecraft single berth cruiser stern narrowboat.

April Rose is offered for sale as a fully fitted live-aboard single berth boat, but there is potential to give her extra berths either in the existing bedroom or the saloon.

Entering from the generous cruiser stern, the wet locker is followed by the bedroom, currently fitted with a fixed single berth, drawer unit and hanging rail.

Next is the bathroom which spans the width of the boat and contains the wc, shower, vanity unit and a washing machine.

The galley has a traditional feel with its decorative brasses and is well equipped with sink, fridge, microwave, oven and separate hob.

Lastly you come to the cosy saloon complete with easy chairs, television and solid fuel stove. Doors lead out onto the bow which is fitted with a cratch cover/canopy.

At 41ft this boat is big enough to house everything you need, yet small enough to be easy to handle and find mooring spots for!
