SQ II – Electric / Gas free 57′ Semi Trad 2012 Tim Tyler
SQ II is a beautifully presented 57’ Semi trad narrowboat built in 2012 by the Audlem Boat Co on a Tim Tyler shell and she is GAS FREE & ELECTRIC!
She has been a liveaboard for the current owners since she was lauched.
The well deck sits aft of the water tank. It is deep, long and a great social space. Through french window style doors into the 13’ saloon area. She is fitted out in oak faced ply with oak flooring and feels warm and cosy. The saloon houses a Bose multi media system, a captains reclining armchair, a Beaniebed (huge bean bag with double mattress inside) and a wall mounted 32” TV / DVD. There is a desk / dining table attached to the portside with a bench seat for two, and shelves opposite.
The solid oak walk through galley follows. This offers lots of storage, a stainless steel sink with drainer, 12v fridge, combination microwave & convection grill and a two burner induction hob. There is a wine fridge as well under the hob. Handy for chef.
Through a door into the walk though bathroom. The loo is a composting one with electric fan & extractor, the basin is ceramic and the shower is a good sized quadrant style with linen shelves next to it. There is an electric oil filled towel rail in here.
Moving aft into the bedroom containing a 4’6” wide x 6’4” long cross bed (storage under), a ceiling mounted TV / DVD. A couple of shelves sit either side of the bed.
A utility / storage room is the aft cabin. There are 36 shelves in here, designed to accomodate the dimensions of IKEA storage boxes. The storage capacity in here is enormous. There is also a 6kg washing machine and a 240v freezer.
The semi trad deck (with pramhood) sits over the guts of the electric propulsion and generation for the boat. She is silently propelled (with Crowther prop) by the EVS induction motor and systems are charged from the 11kva cacooned generator.
230v is provided by the 10kw Victron inverter (or landline), lighting is all LED, there is the controller & wiring for solar (& owners will fit 100w panel), she has a galvanic isolator and hot water is sourced from the immersion or the generator.
Central heating is under floor electric and she is fully double glazed. There is also an intruder alarm system and monitoring and operation of electrical systmes / battery charge & generator start can be done remotely.
A lovely boat ready for immediate occupation.
