Princess Lily is a Dutch motor barge dating from the 1940s, and completely refitted in 2011 including a new engine. Like many Dutch vessels, the lines and the steelwork are superbly built. This boat apparently started life as a bunkering barge, delivering oil and fuel to ports from the Netherlands to Belgium and Northern France. The current layout makes a very comfortable home, with the wheelhouse proving the living room space, with steps down at either end leading to an office/utility room aft, and forward to the galley, then the wet room and finally in the bow a good sized bedroom.

SOLD Firefly is a high spec cruiser stern narrowboat, built in 2010 by Kingsground Narrowboats and using a shell from the Bristol based fabricator, RLL Projects. Firefly was constructed, without regard to cost, as a prototype for a fleet of ultra high standard narrowboats, to be built by a company under the ownership of the present boat owner. Sadly, ill health, which is also the reason for the sale, prevented the owner from pursuing this project, and Firefly remains a one-off pinnacle of excellence in narrowboat construction. Features such as hydraulic wheel steering, underfloor central heating which is zoned to provide temperature control in each area of the cabin, and warm air blown heating are just a few of the luxury additions. The absence of a bow well deck, which is unnecessary in a reverse lay out craft, maximises cabin space.
