Barrel of Ale

Under offer

Price: £39,950

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

This modern and well maintained ex hire boat has just been decommissioned and is now available for sale to a new owner.

Part of a hire fleet for the past 17 years, Barrel of Ale has the advantage of having been regularly serviced and also blacked and painted every 3 years.

The layout consists of a cruiser stern leading down to a dinette area which can convert to a double bed for guests if required.

The galley is neat and clean and equipped with an attractive oven, grill and hob, plenty of cupboards and storage, under-counter fridge and space for a microwave.

A handy toilet is situated between the galley and the first of two fixed bedrooms. This has single beds on either side of the boat with storage overhead.

The main bathroom has a hip bath with shower over, wc and vanity unit. There are then pretty side hatches on both sides of the boat, more wardrobe space, and a double cross-bed at the bow.

Painted in royal blue livery and ready to cruise away, Barrel of Ale would be ideal for family and friends as a holiday home, or possible live-aboard.
