- 4 berth
- Location: Gayton Marina
A 57ft 2008 Widdowson/Witham 4 berth traditional stern narrowboat.
This modern and smart-looking boat has undergone several improvements and maintenance work during the autumn of 2019, most notably having been taken out of the water for blacking, the fitting of 8 new anodes and a full hull survey. At the same time a new BSS certificate was obtained which is valid until November 2023. All related paperwork is available for prospective purchasers to see.
A traditional stern is fitted with a pram hood which helps to protect the large rear slide hatch. Entering the boat from here leads into the engine room; the engine itself was serviced in July 2019 and has only 1167 hours on its clock. This is followed by a fixed double berth with a recently replaced mattress. There is also some useful cupboard and overhead storage space.
The bathroom has attractive tile-effect and wood panelling and is fitted with a shower, vanity unit and Thetford cassette toilet.
Before reaching the galley there is a bright and colourful Pullman-style dinette, which can be converted to a second double berth. A side hatch features here. The galley itself is well equipped - the oven has been recently replaced and the fridge was fitted in 2017. There are also ample work surfaces, a microwave and sink/drainer.
At the bow of the boat is the saloon, which currently contains a comfortable sofa, tv unit and corner solid fuel stove. In addition, central heating radiators are situated throughout the boat to make sure there is warmth in every room! Steps lead out to the bow which is covered by a handsome cratch cover.
In 2018 Echo was treated to new solar panels and had her windows removed and resealed. We highly recommend viewing to appreciate all that this boat has to offer.
