Welcome aboard “Shakespeare,” a remarkable 69ft 6′ Trad style narrowboat, crafted by Les Allen. As you journey beyond the charming Boatman’s Cabin and delve into the engine room, the heart of this vessel reveals itself through a Russell Newbery DM2 18hp engine, combining classic engineering with reliable performance.

Ensuring your comfort on the water, Shakespeare offers a variety of heating options. Stay cosy with hot water provided by both a Calorifier and a Webasto system. Central heating is also courtesy of Webasto, ensuring warmth throughout. For those crisp evenings, the saloon’s Morso Squirrel Oil Stove and the Boatman’s Cabin’s Epping Stove add a touch of traditional warmth and ambiance.

Electrical needs are covered with a 12v and 240v system, a Durite 1500w/3000w Inverter. Sustainability is key with 3 solar panels generating 1200w, keeping you powered up with 1 starter and 4 leisure batteries for extended cruising.

The galley is equipped with a Thetford Caprice MK3 cooker and a 12v Fridgemaster fridge, perfect for preparing delicious meals as you float by scenic views.

Step into the bathroom and you’ll find a cassette toilet, vanity basin, and a hip bath with shower.

Sleeping arrangements are offered over 4 berths across a fixed double and a convertible double in the Boatman’s Cabin.

With 4 side hatches opening up to the world outside, you’re invited to enjoy fresh air and picturesque landscapes from the comfort of your floating home.

Safety and maintenance are up to date, with a Boat Safety Scheme Certificate valid until July 2025 and the hull blacked in March 2021, as well a recent 2020 survey ensuring peace of mind as you embark on your waterway adventures.
