Dorothy Peace is a loveable ‘go anywhere’ 57’ trad stern narrowboat, full of charm and character. She was built in 2002 by Evans & Sons and Mike Haywood Calder Valley, and fitted with oak faced ply with sapele trim throughout.
She has just been blacked (Sep 2021) and had a hull survey at the same time.
The open well deck is an inviting social space, with room for external seating and chairs for long summer evenings. From here you can look out across the bow, past the traditional headlamp and boating regalia.
Looking aft, glazed forward doors lead in to the large saloon at 16’ 6” long. There is a Lincsfire Harmston solid fuel stove, a 2 seater sofa bed which converts to a spare double, a gateleg dining table with 4 folding chairs, and an additional smaller folding table. There is also a shelving unit along the port side, with a TV aerial connection point in the corner, and plenty of floor space for additional freestanding furniture.
The open-plan galley follows, featuring a New World oven & grill with 4 burner gas hob, LEC Inlander 240v fridge, and plenty of cupboards and shelves for storage. One of these cupboards could easily accommodate a washing machine if required. There is also a side door on the starboard side, which brings in additional light and fresh air.
Next is the off-corridor bathroom, with a Thetford cassette toilet, bath with shower over, and glass bowl sink over a tiled cupboard. The sliding door to enter this room cleverly conceals an additional cupboard, accessed from the corridor leading through in to the bedroom.
The bedroom features a 6’4” x 4’0” fixed bed, with storage under. The large double wardrobe sits at the foot end of the bed, along with a free standing triple set of drawers.
Steps lead in to the engine room, with additional storage space. The Isuzu 42 engine is housed here, which was last serviced in 2019 and only used twice since.
She is well equipped with 12v power supplied by the three 110ah domestic batteries (with separate starter), and 240v is from the 2000W Victron inverter, or landline. The lighting is LED throughout.
She has 3 radiators on board, ready for a new central heating system to be installed. Hot water is heated by the engine and an immersion heater when on landline.
Dorothy Peace is a charming boat with plenty of character. She is well equipped for liveaboard life, extended cruising or weekend trips out.
