Price: £54,000

A 55ft 2014 J L Pinder & Son 4 berth semi-traditional stern narrowboat.

A unique opportunity to purchase a stylish 5 year old narrowboat that was built for the current owner but has never been used. The engine has only 20 hours on it!

A spacious and comfortable semi-traditional stern leads down into the fixed double bedroom with a full sized wardrobe at its foot. There is also a radiator in this room.

The bathroom is sleek and modern with a shower cubicle, wc, vanity unit and further radiator.

The galley is fitted with smart cream shaker-style storage units, freestanding cooker and LEC fridge.

Finally, the front cabin has a dinette with removable table that can be converted to a further double berth if required. The room is finished off with a lovely solid fuel stove.

With a BSS certificate valid until 2023, this boat is just waiting for the right owner to take her out cruising!
