Falcon

New

Price: £79,500

A 69ft 2008 ABC Boat Builders 6 berth traditional stern narrowboat

A feature of Falcon is the mid-mounted engine driving a remote hydraulic gearbox. Not only does this make it quieter at the helm but the sometimes difficult access normally associated with a traditional Stern boat is completely eliminated.

The engine is located in a dedicated room and is fully covered with acoustic panels. These can be removed allowing excellent access for maintenance. Contained within the engine room are the electrical controls and all batteries. It also makes for an excellent wet locker and drying space.

The interior of the boat is in a light Ash giving a bright interior. Entering from the rear deck is a sleeping cabin with a fixed double bed. Overhead cupboards and a full height wardrobe provide storage.

A corridor leads forward to the bathroom. This is well equipped with a ceramic hand basin, electric macerator toilet and a built-in shower cubicle. There is an extractor fan and ample shelves for storage of towels etc.

Forward of this is a 6 seat dinette which converts to a double bed. The ALDE central heating and hot water boiler is located under the dinette.

The galley is well appointed and spacious. Once again the units are finished in the same light Ash. There is a stainless 1 ½ bowl sink set below solid surface worktops. An extra wide worktop provides a two place breakfast bar.

The open plan saloon is large and spacious. It has shelves down one side and a built- in LCD TV. The boat comes with cream leather recliner and a convertible settee and there is a solid fuel stove in one corner of the saloon.

Steps lead through glazed doors onto the front deck which also has a removable cratch cover.

The boat has been regularly blacked and serviced. The roof, cockpits and cabin sides have all recently been painted.

Falcon comes with everything you need to sail away and enjoy exploring the waterways.

A leisure mooring is available by separate agreement at Hilperton Marina.
