A 68ft 1998 Gary Gorton 2/4 berth cruiser stern narrowboat

With a popular reverse layout and a fresh contemporary fitout, only completed 4 years ago, Drummond has all you need to enjoy cruising in both comfort and style.

The stern has an handy cratch cover to keep the helmsman dry on those more inclement days, and seating to allow for company.

From here you are led straight into the galley. This has been fitted with smart white Ikea kitchen units providing plenty of storage underneath contrasting wood worktops. It is functional and fully equipped with a gas hob and oven, stainless steel sink and drainer and a new under the counter fridge. Having been recently decorated in 2020, stylish oak flooring leads all the way through the boat with fresh lightly painted walls.

The galley leads on to the saloon in an spacious open plan style. This currently has free standing storage by way of pine drawers and storage shelves. A television is mounted on the wall opposite an Ikea 3 seater sofa bed, and a multi fuel stove at the bow end of the saloon provides cosy heating.

From the saloon, you enter an luxurious and roomy bathroom. Being a walk through area, this has the benefit of being the full width of the boat. There is a full sized corner shower enclosure with a washbasin and vanity unit together with a useful shoe storage unit.

Although there is no bed in there at present, the bow cabin could be used as a bedroom area. The top half of the walls are papered and brightly contrast with the light interior. There is currently a free standing wardrobe for storage.

This cabin leads onto the bow area which again has seating and comes with pram cover which is only 3 years old.

Drummond would be a super boat for both leisure use or liveaboard. If you would like more information or to arrange a viewing, please contact Grove Lock Marina.
