Dabbsy

Under offer

Price: £62,500

A 55ft 2001 Wessex Narrowboats 2 berth wide beam boat.

Offers are invited for Dabbsy which is being offered for sale as an on-going project.

The boat had a complete ‘back to metal’ repaint in June 2021, new windows were fitted all round and the boat was also blacked.

The interior has seen plenty of changes and is an ideal opportunity for someone to stamp their own individuality on the boat.

The original line-out is in place and a new floor has been laid but the internal space has been much modified to suit a live aboard lifestyle.

The planned layout illustrated is an office or small bedroom at the stern. Forward of this is a large bath / shower room and WC, a double bedroom and at the forward end of the boat a very spacious open plan salon and galley.

The solid fuel stove is installed centrally within the saloon.

A virtual tour of this boat is available.

The engine has just been serviced and the Boat Safety Certificate is valid until July 2025.

Viewing is recommended to gain an appreciation of the work needed to complete the project.12 months leisure mooring for the price of 9 at Gayton, Anderton or Alvechurch Marina when purchasing this boat.

To arrange a viewing or make an enquiry, please contact Hilperton Marina on 01225 765243.
