Furness Railway

A 55ft 2002 SW Durham Steelcraft 6 berth cruiser stern narrowboat.

This boat has a well presented interior and is to a good standard and would make a comfortable live-aboard.

The interior gives a light and spacious impression with a modern but welcoming feel.

Entering through the stern doors, the saloon is appointed with a comfortable seating area with the solid fuel stove as a focal point. Two cupboards also provide good storage space. The open plan galley is well appointed with cooker, fridge, sink drainer inset into a solid wood worktop.

The midship is home to two single beds a full height wardrobe and cupboard. Moving forward the bathroom is fitted out with a hip bath and shower, drop through toilet and a compact sink vanity unit. Adjacent to the bathrooom are the steps to a side hatch lending character to the double bedroom also appointed with a full height wardrobe.

Overall a welcoming, homely feel is created throughout the boat.
