Orlestone

A 60ft 1989 Norton Canes Boat Builders 2 berth traditional stern narrowboat. Non-residential moorings available.

Orlestone is a charmingly traditional narrow boat, in excellent exterior condition.

Looking from the back of the boat, a small engine room precedes the main bedroom where there is a fixed double bed and plenty of storage with both a set of drawers and wardrobe space.

Next is the bathroom, fitted with a full size shower, toilet and basin.

The kitchen area feels warm and homely, and is very well equipped with good storage, a full oven with four ring stove and even a microwave.

Right at the front of the boat is the saloon area, where a fold away table can create a spacious seating area, complete with comfy sofa perfect for a cosy evening in by the fire.

This boat is a golden oldie, with plenty of potential to be the perfect home. With a little love and attention, updating the interior could transform this boat into a modern beauty.

Viewing is highly recommended.
