Edith May 57’ Semi Traditional, 2015 is a beautiful boat in every way. She is only two years old, and in those two years has been so well looked after she still gleams, both inside & out.
She is a 57’ Semi Trad, built by Cauldon Boats and fitted out by Knights narrowboats in June 2015.
The external paintwork is excellent. She has a cratch cover and tonneau, both in excellent condition. She feels lovely inside, fitted out in oak faced ply (ceilings & cabin sides painted) and has engineered oak floorboards.
She is somewhat of a reverse layout. From the stern, under which the Beta 43 resides in a spotless engine room, one enters the saloon. This has a 4 seater L shaped couch, good sized wardrobe and cupboard, and the Morso Swift solid fuel stove. The TV / well equipped media centre sits opposite the couch.
A Pullman style dinette with side hatch opposite follows, which makes up into a second double berth (with memory foam topper), and on into the galley. This has the 12v fridge, 4 burner gas hob, oven & grill, and a good sized larder cupboard. The cupboard next to the sink has space, power and plumbing for a washing machine.
The stylish walk through bathroom follows. This houses a spacious quadrant shower cubicle, the Thetford cassette loo (with 3 cassettes), a ceramic countertop basin with pillar mixer tap and a heated towel rail.
The fixed double bedroom is in the bow cabin. Plenty of storage both under and over the bed, and there is a huge double wardrobe at the foot of the bed.
The well deck is spacious at 4’ 6” and has two comfortable bench seats / lockers, a fold down table and a couple of rails for drying clothes.
The central heating is fired by a webasto, but also, and unusually, a heat exchanger off the engine heats the radiators whilst motoring. Not sure why more boats don’t have this system!
