CROMDALE – 55ft traditional style narrowboat from the Colecraft stables built in 1988. She has had only three owners from new, and the current owners, having lived aboard for 4 years and brought up their now two year old baby on her, have decided to move ashore.
Her paintwork is in very good shape for a boat of her age, and she feels longer inside than 55 feet. She is spacious and is a very light boat with no less than 14 windows and two side doors in the galley.
She has a solid fuel stove, washing machine and central heating. There are also double glazing panels stored on the boat for the winter months.
From the bow, the large saloon is currently empty and offers a blank canvas for making your own. Plenty of room for a sofabed if berths are a requirement.
Into the kitchen, which is new, having been replaced by the current owners. There are two side hatches here (with roof openings) and one with exit steps.
After the galley comes the room which served as the nursery. This is 6’6” long and offers many options. A dinette arrangement would offer another double berth as well as a separate dining room, but it could be a study, reading room, workshop…an unusal opportunity.
The bathroom follows, which hosts the shower cubicle, basin and the Mansfield Traveler pump out loo. These are very practical systems with nothing to go wrong and they cannot get blocked.
Fixed double (6’4 x 4.0’) bedroom at the stern before moving into the aft cabin housing the Vetus 33hp engine, electrical systems, and navigation equipment and accessories. A delightful 55ft traditional style narrowboat.
