Lechwe

Price: £60,000

A 59ft 2010 Tyler/Wilson 3 berth traditional stern josher tug.

A unique opportunity to own a replica 'Josher' tug style narrowboat. This characterful boat has been lovingly fitted out by the current owner to a high standard, and has all the charm of a traditional boat, but with the mod cons needed to make boating life a pleasure.

Entering the boat from the stern, the first cabin holds a single berth and a wall of fitted wooden wardrobes and storage cupboards. A central door leads into the engine room where the engine takes pride of place opposite ample hooks where ropes can be kept.

A walk-through bathroom makes maximum use of the space available and is fitted with cassette toilet, vanity unit and spacious shower cubicle.

The galley is well ventilated with a skylight and side hatch. Here are smart wooden units with tiled working surfaces, oven, hob, sink unit and under counter fridge. A kettle and toaster are included in the sale.

The saloon is decorated in warm red tones and has a corner diesel bubble stove. During the day, this cabin contains easy chairs and a dining table, which folds down at night to make space for the ingenious sliding double bed which spends its days cleverly concealed behind a curtain! The bed fits underneath the tug deck when not in use.

Must be seen to fully appreciate all her features. We are also told that Lechwe is a joy to handle!
