Gambler could be an ideal project for any purchaser wanting to buy a boat to upgrade.  More photos coming soon

Further Information

Gambler is a 45′ Cruiser Stern Narrowboat, built in approximately 1972 by Swanline. Constructed with a steel hull and fibre glass cabin, Gambler has a traditional interior layout and is set up as a permanent live aboard by the vendor, who has now relocated. From the spacious cruiser stern enter under Pram Cover in through a bedroom with fixed double berth and ample storage space.  Forward is an off-corridor bathroom with shower, cassette toilet and vanity basin.  The galley is equipped with a gas hob/oven/grill, microwave and fridge with ice box. The galley is open to the saloon, which contains fixed seating (that converts to an additional double berth), TV with satellite scanner, and a multi fuel stove.  There is wood flooring and central heating throughout.  From the saloon there are doors to the bow, which has further storage space under cratch and cover.

Narrowboats Ltd feels that Gambler would be a good project for somebody wishing to acquire a boat for upgrading.  We therefore recommend the purchaser gets a survey done by a marine surveyor.

Please call Narrowboats Ltd to arrange as viewing of Gambler, which is available for viewing at a private mooring.  More photos coming soon.
