Mark joined our team in May 2019. His Great Great Grandfather was a boat builder, his Great Grandfather was a Master Mariner (who captained masted merchant ships across the world in the late Victorian era), and his father was a blacksmith at Liverpool Docks in the 1950s, maintaining the dredging fleet for the Mersey and Docks Harbour Board. When not working at Wincham Wharf, he is occupied by his energetic 7-year-old son – Freddie – who keeps him young at heart!

My Thoughts

At 62ft long this boat has plenty of space as a permanent liveaboard. I particularly like the separate space on entering. This was used by the current owner as a workshop but it could easily be converted into a second fixed double bedroom, an office/library or a substantial wardrobe.

Further Information

‘Freedom’ is a 62′ Traditional Stern Narrowboat Built in 1981 by David Piper Narrowboats. She is a traditional layout with a engine room at the stern.

Entering the vessel from the stern the BMC Diesel engine is enclosed within the Trad stern and boasts plenty of useful storage for cruising equipment, tools etc. As you enter the main cabin she has a useful workspace that could be converted into an office or second bedroom but more importantly allows flexibility if required. Forward to a corridor WC benefitting solely with a pump out WC. Entering the master cabin she consists of a large fixed double and mass amount of storage. Forward to the corridor bathroom with a hip bath, overhead shower and vanity basin. As you enter the galley the living quarters benefit from an open plan feel and consist of a walkthrough galley, L Shape sofa bed and diesel stove.

‘Freedom’ has been used for many years as a liveabaord and has been regularly adapted to accommodate the essential liveaboard needs. She is available for viewing on hardstanding here at Wincham Wharf, please call for a viewing or to book your test cruise today.
