48ft Fox narrowboat.
Manufactured in 1988 by fox narrowboats. I have lived on this boat for eight years. It was originally on the grand union canal until 2010 when I had it transported down to south coast.
it has been in the sea since then.the boat has been regularly removed from the water on a yearly basis and jet washed scraped back and repainted using bitchumen international antifoul.with 16 new zinc anodes fitted each time.the hull was plated where needed according to the survey in 2010.and has not needed any welding since.heating is provided by a wood burner which heats the boat throughout at minimal cost.
the boat has a diesel burner fitted with two radiators but i have disconnected the diesel tank, this can easily be reconnected.hot water is provided by means of an immersion heater which has been a very reliable unit and is economical to run.240 volt and 12 volt electrical systems rewired in 2010.the boat has ample room for 2 people to sleep in comfort in a double bunk with ample stowage beneath.
Fur hob oven and grill in the galley, sink drainer with hot and cold running water and cupboard space below.seating for two in the dinet which can be easily be changed by lowering the table to create an extra bunk if needed. Has been a very cozy and pleasant home for the last few years but due to personal circumstances I am now selling.
Viewings are welcome and are encouraged by appointment only as the boat at present resides on a mooring at a boat yard.
