This boat has been well taken care of and well loved. My partner and I loved living on this beautiful boat, but currently need something a little bigger for a growing family. Feel free to contact me with any questions or to set up a viewing/ virtual viewing. Our move-out date is set for mid to late August.

Great live aboard or starter boat, Doubloon has a light and airy newly painted interior with hardwood floors throughout and large windows. The open plan living space with modern kitchen features lots of storage, and includes a gas heater and gas hob. The living room has a brand new multi-fuel squirrel stove (Feb. 2019) which easily heats up the entire boat (i've had to open the windows). In the bow, you'll find a vintage style box bed with custom built storage compartment underneath. There are two roof hatches, one in the bow and stern, which are great in the summer months.
The living space can be closed off from the bathroom cabin by a custom made wooden harmonica door. The bathroom features a spacious shower, compost toilet and lots of shelf space. Leading to the back deck you'll find a clothing rail with shelves, room for a set of drawers ( we currently have 5 IKEA Kallex cubes) and more under storage. I even have my bicycle stored in the cabin. There is also the main electrics cupboard, inverter and solar charge controller.
One solar panel that provides ample power using USB or 12V plugs in the main cabin, we have a second which helps with the fridge and turntable.
