- 2 berth
- Location: Gayton Marina
A 70ft 1980 Cheshire Steelcraft 2 berth traditional stern narrowboat.
This imaginatively decorated and spacious narrowboat has been completely refurbished and renovated in recent years both inside and out. Riadne now offers her prospective purchaser a fully equipped floating home, suitable for extended cruising holidays or as a live-aboard.
The stern doors open into a Boatman's cabin where deckgear etc is stored. This then has further double doors into the first living space, which is currently being used as an office/storeroom. There is a chest freezer here as well as a writing desk and stool, and an alcove with hanging storage.
Walking through the boat, the next space contains a fixed double berth with padded patterned headboard and storage underneath.
The bathroom is open plan and features a shower tray with curtain, a cassette toilet, washbasin with storage cupboard below, and full height black and white tiling to the shower/toilet area.
Moving forward, the next space is the galley, which is very well equipped with sink, oven, washing machine, fridge and ample cupboards and shelves. A particularly pretty side hatch has porthole-style windows with decorative tree motif.
The saloon is a generous size and currently minimally furnished with a sold fuel stove, storage lockers and a sumptuous red and black sofa which is included in the sale.
Steps lead up to the bow deck which is protected with a cratch cover and A frame.
Riadne comes with 2 solar panels and a BSS certificate valid until September 2024. Viewing is highly recommended and can be arranged by contacting Gayton Marina on 01604 858685.
