Bolli is a 57’6 semi trad narrowboat which has been lived aboard and cruised extensively for the last three years.
The reliable Beta engine has low hours for its age (4500) but benefited from regular use and attention over the last three years including new engine mounts earlier this year and a new drive plate in 2022, and the gearbox is a reconditioned unit fitted in 2020.
Bolli boasts Marque Narrowboats’ characteristic attractive shape with long swims and attention to detail. Signwriting and other details by Andy Russell make the boat stand out - arguably it looks better now than in 1999 when it was the outfitters’ showboat!
The semi-trad stern boasts raised tractor seats instead of uncomfortable benches, giving more space for guests and the option of sitting whilst at the helm, and there are folding canvas covers for the generous space at both ends
Inside it’s light, airy and spacious, and benefited from significant refitting in recent years. The large lounge area has room for a sofa in front of the stove at the bow, a raised dinette is offers waterside dining (and converts to a spare bed), and the practical u-shaped kitchen with Thetford Caprice oven/grill/hob and 12v fridge has a large side hatch. Bathroom is large, bed at the stern is fixed and there's plenty of storage space throughout
Heating from Clearview multifuel stove and Webasto with three radiators. Hot water from calorifier/Webasto. Fixed double bed, cassette toilet, 5 leisure batteries (replaced last year) with Victron inverter, battery charger and solar
The hull was epoxied in 2015 and 2019 for long term protection and was in excellent condition when last taken out the water in 2020.
