62′ Trad Stern Narrowboat ‘Rose Al’


‘Rose Al’ is a 62′ narrow boat with a traditional stern and layout. Purchased by the current owner in 2017 as a liveaboard, the flooring, galley and bathroom have all been updated, but the exterior is now in need of attention to prevent further deterioration. This is a vessel that can be used straight away, and if looked after it should provide many years of happy boating to a new owner. Viewings are available 7 days a week by prior appointment please.

10mm welded steel base plate, 6mm hull sides and gunwale, 4mm cabin sides and 4mm roof. LPG storage locker in the bow, stainless steel water tank beneath the well deck, hardwood glazed cabin doors, a steel side hatch, alloy framed port hole and hopper style windows, pigeon box, steel aft doors and sliding hatch. Internal fit-out is in painted plywood and wood laminate flooring. Insulation, where accessible, appears to be polystyrene sheets and some form of foil. External paintwork in royal blue panels, red framing and white coach lines. The topsides paintwork is in below average condition, the hull is overdue for blacking and the interior would benefit from some updating in places. The overall condition is reflected in the asking price and a 2017 survey indicated some localised pitting in the base plate and hull sides that was within insurance tolerances.
