Liberty Rose

A 55ft 1990 Sagar Marines 3 berth traditional stern narrowboat.

A rare opportunity to own a boat built by the much respected family boat builders -Sagar Marine and fitted with a Classic Armstrong Siddeley Engine.

Entering the boat from the trad stern is the boatman’s cabin. This provides plenty of storage space or potential for an additional living space. This leads to the engine room and the heart of ‘Liberty Rose’, the Armstrong Siddeley air-cooled diesel engine.

Next along is the main living space and the first cabin which has a fixed double bed with storage beneath.

This leads on to the bathroom which has a hip bath with shower over, a vanity basin and a composting toilet.

The galley is equipped with a gas cooker and 12v fridge. There are worktops with storage beneath, shelves and various hooks. A sink and drainer is set into the worktop.

The saloon is situated at the fore end of the boat. This has a built in sofa which can be converted to a single-bed. A solid fuel stove is located in the forward corner. Loose furniture is also included in the form of a dresser, dining table and four chairs.

Steps lead through doors onto the front deck.
