A 56ft 1984 Arcrite 6 berth cruiser stern narrowboat.
In the 1980's Arcrite were known as one of the best boat manufacturers in the country and Shropshire Lass is still fitted out to their original design, having been in the possession of the current owners for over 20 years.
Steps from the cruiser stern lead to the first of 2 fixed bedrooms. This cabin contains twin single berths, storage cupboards and a wc just along the corridor.
The second bedroom has a fixed double berth with wardrobes and hanging rail, and this is followed by the main bathroom which is fitted with vanity unit, dump through toilet, central heating radiator and hip bath with shower overhead.
There is a neat galley area, complete with sink and drainer, oven and hob, and freestanding fridge.
Lastly, Shropshire Lass has a Pullman style dinette which can be converted to provide a second double berth if required. A large side radiator features here to ensure warmth in the living area.
A side door opens onto the bow deck.
