Aileen Kelly is a 42' cruiser stern, all steel narrowboat. She has been my lovely home for 6 years, but now with a baby on the way I must reluctantly sell on. She has a solidly built, open plan reverse layout with all the home comforts: original solid pine floor and wooden clad ceiling throughout, a large galley kitchen with lots of cupboard space, an eye-level oven and a two-burner hob, and a Waeco Combicool Cas 60 12V / Gas fridge.
In the saloon there is a fitted fold-down table, a Cello flat screen TV with built-in DVD player and usb port, a large custom-built sofa (with inside storage) that cleverly converts into a double bed and / or table seating. There is a cosy, beautiful and efficient wood / coal stove, enough shelf space for a library and a drinks cabinet.
Through wooden doors there is a double bedroom with 2 fitted wardrobes and bedside cabinets, with more storage beneath the bed.
The bathroom has an oak floor, a shower and a solar-powered airhead compost toilet with spare battery. There is instant hot water from the Paloma water heater.
Aileen Kelly has a robust Lister 2 cylinder air-cooled engine, regularly maintained and in good working order. In 2018 all the gaskets were replaced, a new exhaust was fitted and the hull was blacked. There is a starter battery and two leisure batteries, a 240V hookup and two 100W solar panels (one with cracked glass but still working) on roofboxes powering 12V led lights and pumps and sockets.
In the bow there is a generous seating area on deck, and a gas locker for two gas bottles. In the hold there is a massive water tank, along with more storage space.
There is a PIR security system and doors are secured with Enfield garage locks.
Boat safety certificate until May 2023.
Boat comes with Honda EU Generator (like new condition), spare ropes, fenders, tools, windlasses, pins etc. Everything you need to go.
