    Welcome to the exclusive listing of this meticulously maintained 1990 50ft Semi Trad canal boat, a true gem for enthusiasts of classic watercraft and the boating lifestyle. Crafted with precision and care by the renowned boat builder David Piper, this vessel combines traditional aesthetics with modern functionality, providing a comfortable and stylish home on the water.

    This 50ft Semi Trad narrowboat is a stunning example of craftsmanship and design. Built in 1990 by David Piper, it boasts a timeless style and meticulous attention to detail. With berths for four people and a valid Boat Safety Certificate until 20/12/27, it offers both comfort and peace of mind for your waterborne adventures.

    The layout of this narrowboat is thoughtfully arranged from stern to bow, providing distinct areas for various purposes. From the utility area to the well deck, every space has been optimized for functionality and comfort. Whether you're in the bedroom, bathroom, kitchen, lounge, or enjoying the outdoors on the well deck, you'll find a cosy and inviting atmosphere.

    Powering this boat is a reliable Vetus 32HP engine paired with a well-matched gearbox. This combination ensures smooth and efficient propulsion, making your journeys enjoyable and worry-free.

    The hull of this narrowboat is a testament to quality. With a hull thickness of 8/6/4, it's sturdy and dependable. The last blacking was performed on 11/11/2022 with two coats of high build bitumastic by R W Davis, ensuring protection against the elements. Insulation with glass fibre to the gunwales and polystyrene above adds to its durability. A recent hull survey conducted on 11/3/20, as requested by the insurance company, confirms its excellent condition. External covers, including a front cratch and rear covering seating area, provide shelter and comfort.

    Enhancing maneuverability is the Aquafaz Nobel 3.2 KW bow thruster. It gives you precise control, making docking and navigating tight spots a breeze.

    The boat is equipped with a robust electrical system, including one starter and three domestic batteries. It has a 240V supply to four 13amp double sockets and solar panels to keep you powered up. Heating is provided by a Morso squirrel stove, refurbished in Dec 2022, which supplies radiators at midships and in the bedroom. The central heating system efficiently distributes warmth throughout the boat.

    The galley is a chef's delight, featuring an Engel fridge with mains and 12V auto switching, a Statesman LPG cooker (new in 2017), a sink, and ample cupboard and storage space. Bright worktops add a touch of elegance. The lounge is a cosy retreat with a fixed sofa that converts to a double bed, two armchairs, tables, and a Morso squirrel stove. The well-carpeted interior exudes warmth and comfort.

    The master bedroom offers a comfortable 4’ fixed double bed with storage underneath, an airing cupboard, a calorifier, and ample storage, including a hanging wardrobe. The bathroom is well-appointed with a showerhead, mixer, base, and curtain, a sink with a vanity unit, and a Thetford pump-out toilet.

    This narrowboat is not just a vessel; it's a work of art. The topside received meticulous attention, with a complete sanding, priming, and painting process using 2 coats of 2 pack epoxy paint in July 2021. All windows were removed, rust was addressed, and new signwriting was added, bringing the exterior to its pristine condition. This boat is a beautiful testament to the care and passion of its owners, making it an excellent choice for your next waterborne adventure.
