Smooth as Silk is a stunning reverse layout semi cruiser stern gas free narrowboat in wonderful condition both inside and out. She was built in 2009 by Reeves and superbly fitted out by D& J narrowboats.
She has just (May 2021) been blacked, serviced and had a hull survey carried out.
The stern deck is huge at over 10’ long - an amazingly sociable area. It is covered by a very good condition pramhood. Under the boards sit the Beta 43 engine and the 5kw Northern Star diesel generator (both with Hospital silencers). There is a 360ah bank of 2v batteries supplying the 24v on board systems. Propulsion is aided by the bowthruster.
Steps lead into the 12’ long galley. This is very well equipped with a beautiful diesel fired Heritage Range and microwave oven for cooking, a 24v fridge (with icebox), a myriad of cupboards, a Belfast sink and a separate washing machine and tumble dryer. An extractor fan is in the ceiling. The organised electrics are housed in the cupboards by the steps.
An L shaped dinette follows (with side hatch opposite and storage under) and then you move into the good sized saloon. This has a huge double sofabed opposite the under-gunwale TV with shelves all around, and there is a Bubble solid fuel stove. There is also a DVD/CD centre, a Freesat and Freeview box. A side hatch adds light and air. Both side hatches have glazed windows to keep the elements out.
The walkthrough bathroom is next. This features a macerator pumpout loo, a ceramic basin and a quadrant shower. There is also an extractor light in the ceiling.
The bedroom is in the forward cabin. Generously proportioned at nearly 12’ long, the bed is a cross bed and there is a large double wardrobe at the aft end of the room. There are further cupboards around and over the bed along with a floor to ceiling shelving cupboard next to the glazed front door.
Steps lead up to the cratch covered well deck.
Her water tank is stainless steel and water is heated by the Range, the engine or an immersion. She is centrally heated by the Heritage range or the engine can heat the radiators. All the lighting is LED.
230v is from either landline, the 2.5kva inverter or the 5kw diesel fired generator.
She is very presentable and ready to go. She will make someone a really well equipped and comfortable home or holiday boat.
