Myrmica is a striking vessel which ever way you look at her. The eye catching shell was produced by Canal Transport Services at their Norton Canes yard, where Dennis Cooper along with his son Matthew have built a tremendous reputation for their solid workmanship and have recently celebrated their 57th year in the boat building industry.
The interior is by no means the poor relation, the Boatmans cabin was built by CTS, with the remaining fit-out by the previous owner, which puts many so called professional boat fitters to shame.
All traditional decorations are by well regarded Phil Speight.
Heating is by the tried and tested reliable Old English diesel stove with water coil to heat the domestic water and radiators, fed from its own dedicated tank situated in the well deck, plus of course the solid fuel range in the Boatmans cabin.
Motive power is provided by a gutsy 3 cylinder, 46hp Perkins engine, swinging a 22in by 18in propeller, which coupled with long swims fore and aft, should guarantee good handling capabilities.
