Desert Rose – 2004 65ft Semi-Traditional narrowboat is a beautifully presented Semi-Traditional style narrowboat. Her shell was built by Keith Woods & she was originally fitted out by Pinder. She has subsequently been re-fitted out by her owners and Gayton Marina. She is a gas free boat, with the oven and hob being diesel fuelled, and she was re-painted just a year ago in July 2016.
Boat name: Desert Rose
Boat type: Semi trad
The well deck is a huge 6’ 6” long, allowing four people to comfortably dine alfresco.
From here one enters the 10’ long saloon. A lovely light room, with oak floors, and an L shaped sofa which also serves as an additional double berth. One of the six webasto diesel fired radiators is in here.
On into the walk through galley with the diesel fired oven & hob, a well placed side hatch over the sink and 12v fridge, with plenty of work surfaces and storage.
There are then two further areas which follow. The first could be a breakfast bar, an office, or a dinette with the additional of another side hatch. The options for this space are plentiful! Then into the second area that I would describe as currently being used as the utility area, which houses a large wardrobe and some good shelf space over the washing machine.
On into the spacious walkthrough bathroom. This houses the pump out electric flush loo, a stylish counter top ceramic basin and a good sized shower cubicle.
The bedroom follows. The bed is 6’2” x 4’, with limited storage under, and there is a large wardrobe at the foot of the bed with another cupboard housing the electrics opposite.
The semi trad stern has two bench seats / lockers either side, with the popular Barrus Shire engine under.
Desert Rose – 2004 65ft Semi-Traditional narrowboat is ready for immediate gas-less living or cruising!
