Florence

Under offer

Price: £69,950

A 57ft 2006 4-6 berth S M Hudson traditional stern narrowboat.

Florence is a beautifully presented traditional stern narrowboat. The boat was built by the highly respected S M Hudson Boatbuilders. It would be equally suitable for leisure or as a live aboard craft.

Entering the boat from the rear deck is the engine room/wet locker. In this space are all the electrical system controls and there is also room for storage of tools and other items.

Through a door is the sleeping berth which has a fixed double bed. Under the bed are large drawers and there is also a full height wardrobe and a cupboard over the bed.

A corridor leads to the shower room. This has a large shower enclosure with glass doors, built in cupboard, ceramic corner hand basin and a cassette toilet.

The fore end of the boat is open plan giving plenty of light.

The galley is a good size with ample worktop space and is well equipped with a gas cooker, 12V fridge and stainless sink and drainer.

Beneath the worktops are storage cupboards and a 240V washing machine. The galley is completed with overhead cupboards. There is also a side opening hatch which provides additional light and ventilation.

The Pullman style dinette and table is raised so that you sit at window level. The dinette converts to a temporary double bed.

The saloon is large enough for loose furniture and is currently fitted with a corner settee which can also be used an extra double bed when required.

At the fore end of the boat, in one corner is the Kabola diesel fired stove and opposite this a shelf and wall mounted TV.

Steps lead through double doors to the front deck which has a cratch cover. There is also bench style seating on each side, perfect for enjoying the views as you cruise along the waterways.

Viewing is highly recommended.

Florence has a Boat Safety Certificate until 09/02/2025.

12 months leisure mooring for the price of 9 at Gayton, Anderton or Alvechurch Marina when purchasing this boat.
