Five Sisters – 36′ Cruiser 1979 Springer
Five Sisters is a charming 36’ cruiser stern narrowboat built in 1979 by Springer, and is in lovely condition benefiting from a full repaint and blacking in 2020. She was also had a new base plate, with over-plating 6” up the side, 17 years ago when the current owner purchased her.
The large stern deck (7’7”) is a good social space with plenty of room for crew members, and is covered by a pram hood (in good condition) for all-weather cruising.
Steps lead down, through the starboard side stable door, into the galley. Here there is a Campingaz 3 way fridge (currently on 12v), Vanette 500WL oven, grill & 4 burner gas hob, and plenty of shelves and cupboards, and a cutlery draw.
The bathroom follows, with cross corridor opening doors to maximise all of the useable space. Cupboards and shelves sit on the corridor side, with a rectangular shower tray, vinyl lined cubicle with shower curtain, and Thetford cassette toilet in the main bathroom area.
The saloon is next, with two leather captains chairs (and matching foot stool in the bedroom), folding table, and more storage options. There is also room for a TV on the corner unit, above the built in MP3 CD/radio player.
A clever sliding door leads through to the bedroom, which features the fixed double cross bed, with drawers either side and storage under, and an array of shelves around the bed.
Glazed forward doors lead out on to the cratch covered well deck, with wrap around storage lockers.
The BMC1800 engine is housed under the stern deck, recently serviced in summer 2020, with twin fuel tanks either side.
230v power is supplied by 2 different inverters (1kw and 2kw respectively) depending on usage, with the option of a plug in battery charger, and 12v is from the 2x 115ah domestic batteries (new in 2020) and 1x starter (new in 2019).
All of the lighting is LED, and hot water is supplied by the Paloma gas instant hot water heater, housed in the saloon.
For a cruiser stern boat of just 36’, she packs in plenty of storage, homely touches and clever space saving tricks. She is a charming holiday boat or, with a few additions, would make for a really comfy liveaboard.
