Prince – 60′ Trad 1990 Terry Babcock
Prince is a charming 60’ trad stern narrowboat built and fitted out in 1990 by Terry Babcock. With a pine T&G ceiling, painted wallpaper cabin sides, and a mix of carpet and oak faced ply to the hull sides, she has a traditional and cosy feel throughout.
She has been well maintained having been last blacked in September 2020 (with survey), and the 4 fitted anodes were deemed satisfactory at this time.
The well deck is covered by a cratch cover in good condition (new in 2015) and features wrap around lockers and padded cushions for external seating.
Stained glass inlaid forward doors lead into the large 13’ 9” saloon. Here there is a 2 seater sofa with matching foot stool, an Evergreen multi fuel stove, Toshiba 24” TV/DVD, and an array of shelves for storage. The galley worktop overhangs the saloon, forming a breakfast bar with two high chairs.
This flows into the 13’ 2” galley, with a 12v/240v Shoreline fridge and freezer (with separate batteries & solar), Thetford Midi Prima Mk4 oven & grill, Bush 4 burner gas hob, 12 bottle wine rack and heaps of cupboards, shelves, drawers, and worktop space.
The off-corridor bathroom is next, housing the Thetford Porta Potti toilet, tiled shower tray with shower curtain, and acrylic basin over a large vanity cupboard.
The bedroom follows, with the fixed double birth (6’2” x 4’0”) with storage under, cupboard over, and large wardrobe at the aft. The Zanussi washing machine is housed here as well, with an array of shelves over.
A bi-folding door separates the living quarters from the engine room, up a set of three steps. The BMC 1.8 engine is housed here, which was last serviced in January 2021, and is operated by traditional speed wheel controls. Another small step leads out on to the stern deck.
The boat is not centrally heated (Alde is broken) and hot water is supplied by the Paloma instant hot water heater.
12v power is supplied by the 4x 115ah batteries (topped up by 480w of solar, with an Outback controller), 2x additional dedicated fridge 110ah batteries (topped up by 240w of solar, with an EP Solar MPPT controller), and separate starter battery. A Sterling Power charger and galvanic isolator are also fitted.
230v power can be obtained by the Ipower 3000w inverter, or landline.
The lighting is LED throughout.
Prince has a surprisingly large amount of space for entertaining, heaps of storage, and all of the relevant equipment for liveaboard life or extended cruising.
