Hi, welcome to my listing for my newly fitted narrow boat, Birdie. She's been recently fitted out by myself. I've fitted out many narrow boats to a high standard. Birdie is modern, sleek but with a homely feel with her shaker kitchen, Oak floor and trims, and warm lights. She's been well very looked after and it shows in the condition of the hull. Birdie was built in 2000 by Soar Valley who are well know for producing high quality boats.
Style: Trad Stern
Original Steel Thicknesses: 10:6:4
Boat Safety: Will come with 4 years
Hull: Very good condition. She's on hardstanding near leicester so you're welcome to inspect the hull yourself before getting a survey.
Insulation: Spray Foam. I wouldn't buy a boat with any other type as spray foam is a must for Narrow Boats as its reduces the condensation the most.
Engine: Thornycroft water cooled. Please note the engine will need a service and new engine mounts, alternator bracket, some wiring. This was the last job on my list but unfortunately I've run out of time to sort. There's a mechanic on the yard that can sort it.
