Drum Solo

Under offer

Price: £18,000

A 52ft 1980 Coles Moreton 6 berth cruiser stern narrowboat.

Drum Solo is a well fitted and attractive boat.

It is being sold as a project, requiring work to bring it up to standard. Once done it will give years of service.

The known work required is ‘re-making’ of some existing welds on the hull sides, two small areas of over plate on the upper hull sides, the base plate is showing signs of wear and the survey recommends that this should be over-plated in the course of the next 12 months.

Various other areas of steel require cleaning and painting.

Corrosion is evident in the gas lockers on the rear deck and some welding work to these will also be required.

There are also some other items of a lesser nature.

A copy of a survey carried out in September 2018 can be made available when viewing the boat.

Other than the survey remarks Drum Solo is a well-cared for and well-presented boat.

In the rear cabin is a fixed double bed and forward of this the shower room with shower tray, cassette toilet and corner hand basin.

A corridor leads to another cabin with two bunk beds opposite which is storage and a worktop with inset hand basin.

The open plan galley/saloon is well equipped with a sink and drainer, separate gas hob and oven and a fridge. In the saloon is fixed seating which can also be used as additional sleeping space and a solid fuel stove.
