Vital Spark

Price: £34,950

A 61ft 2006 B T S Engineering 2 berth traditional stern narrowboat.

Vital spark is a one off Steel Narrow boat with many unusual features. The boat has two distinct sections, the engine room and the living quarters.

The engine room is entered via the rear of the boat and houses the engine and a silent generator. This also houses the workings for a raisable wheelhouse which you access from the deck when raised, keeping you warm and dry when cruising in the winter. This can be lowered to accommodate the low canal bridges.

The living area can be accessed from the mid decks or side hatches to the front. Entering from the mid-deck, is the bedroom cabin. This offers a double berth and storage, in the form of shelving at the end of the bed.

Continuing through the boat is the bathroom. This is fitted with a pumpout toilet, a washbasin and a shower.

Next is the galley. This is equipped with a sink and drain unit, a 2 burner hob, a fridge, a washing machine/drier and multiple cupboards, which offer plentiful storage.

At the bow of the boat is the saloon. This space has few fittings and could therefore be arranged to your taste. This area also offers a stove.

If you would like to view this boat, please contact Blackwater Meadow Marina.
