Boat name: Illydan
Boat type: Trad
ILLYDAN is a well loved 54ft traditional narrowboat, built by Richard Fee of Ledgard Bridge in Yorkshire.
She is in a lovely condition. The current owners had her designed and built, and have looked after her since her launch in 1997.
The exterior enamel paintwork is the original and is in very good condition. The only parts of the exterior which have been re-painted are the roof rails.
The boat is light and airey, lined with an oak finish throughout and heated by either the Boatman’s stove or the Alde central heating.
The bow locker houses the gas bottle, and the cratch covered well deck is roomy and has another locker which doubles up as a forward bench.
Down through a single door into the saloon housing 2 armchairs opposite both the stove and a radiator.
The galley follows with the cooker and sink on the port side, with work surfaces, cupboards and fridge opposite. A very practical layout.
On into the the dinette area, which leads to a corridor on the starboard side. This gives access to the bathroom first, followed by a good sized storage cupboard, and on into the fixed double berth bedroom with wardrobe at the foot of the bed.
Steps up lead to the adequately sized engine room area and out to the helmsman’s position.
Illydan is a well appointed 54ft traditional narrowboat for either leisure cruising or living aboard.
