Parvulus is a delightful 44’ 6” cruiser stern narrowboat built in 1996 by Peter Nicholls Boats, with an extensive refit completed in 2021 by the current owners. She is fitted with oak faced ply with sapele trim to the ceiling and hull sides, oak tongue and groove to the cabin sides, and oak effect Karndean flooring throughout.
The well deck, although compact at 3’, fits in all of the necessities. There are lockers either side with plenty of storage, doubling up as external seating, and a cratch cover stored inside the boat ready to be fitted. The gas locker can also be easily accessed from here.
Steps lead down through glazed double doors into the 9’ saloon. Here there is a 3 seater sofa bed, which converts to a spare double, a wall mounted smart TV, folding table, Villager Heron solid fuel stove, and an array of storage options.
This flows into the open plan galley, with a 12v Shoreline fridge with icebox, Thetford combined oven & grill with 3 burner gas hob, and plenty more cupboards and shelves for storage. An opening skylight brings in additional light and fresh air.
The bathroom is next, with a square shower enclosure with thermostatic mixer bar, Thetford Porta Potti toilet, and a white ceramic oval basin over vanity unit. The highlight of this room is the feature ‘penny wall’, covering the upper half of the aft bulkhead in hundreds of 1p coins.
The bedroom follows, housing twin beds (6’5” x 2’3”) either side, which can easily be reconfigured in multiple ways producing either a double or kingsize bed as required. With drawers under, shelves over, and a double wardrobe at the base of the bed, this room packs in plenty of clever storage.
A detachable wooden step ladder leads out on to the stern deck, with the Beta Marine BD722 20hp engine under.
The boat is heated by the solid fuel stove in the saloon, and hot water is supplied by the Forcali instant hot water heater with a dedicated inverter.
12v power is supplied by the 3x 110ah batteries, with a separate starter, and 230v power can be obtained by the Victron 1600w inverter. The batteries are topped up by 350w of solar, and Charge Pro 15a charger when on landline.
Lighting is LED throughout, with additional under gunnel lights, and solar powered string lights in the saloon.
Parvulus has a delightfully spacious and comfortable feel, in a compact length suitable for weekends away, extended cruising or residential.
