Serendipity

Reduced

Price: £59,950

A 55ft 2009 ABC Leisure 4 berth semi-traditional stern narrowboat.

This modern and thoughtfully designed narrowboat has been in the care of the current owner since new and has a BSS certificate valid until September 2021.

The popular and sociable semi-traditional stern leads through to wide steps into the engine room, which boasts a Russell Newbery DM2 engine, fitted in 2014. This is followed by a cross-bed double berth in the permanent bedroom. A double wardrobe has been provided as built-in furniture, and there are attractive porthole style windows here.

To maximise space the boat has then been designed with a walk-through bathroom, equipped with vanity unit, toilet, and bath with shower.

More storage cupboards are placed as you enter the galley, which has pleasing curved contours to the work surfaces and is equipped with fridge, sink with double drainers, oven, hob, and Panasonic combination microwave which is included in the sale.

At the bow of the boat is a comfortable saloon with sofa bed, dining table and chairs, and solid fuel stove which comes complete with its classic 'Roses' design coal scuttle.

Serendipity is painted in a cheerful blue livery and would be equally suitable as a live-aboard or holiday home. Please contact Alvechurch Marina on 0121 445 1133 to arrange to view.
