Price: £32,500

A 70ft 1978 Terry Babcock 3 berth cruiser stern narrowboat.

This historic Terry Babcock boat was fully stripped and spray foam insulated in 2018, together with hull blacking and an engine rebuild. A unique boat with some quirky features, she has not yet been fitted with a bathroom - but there is ample room for one to be added to the new owner's taste.

A traditional stern has doors into the engine room, followed by a classic galley design with attractive wooden units to either side of the boat. There is a full sized oven and hob, sink and drainer, plentiful storage cupboards and under counter fridge.

Next to the galley is an open plan space, currently occupied by a solid fuel stove and an opposite work surface/table. A dinette has been fitted with the seating on either side of the boat, and you then reach another spacious area which at present is home to two side hatches with large steps leading from each one into the boat.

A further unoccupied section follows, and then a fitted high level bunk bed in catching green and orange colours, complete with climbing holds for the adventurous!

Between the 2 bedroom areas is a large walk in wardrobe containing shelving to either side.

Finally, the bow of the boat is fitted with a fixed double berth with triple aspect windows making it light and airy.

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