Emily is a much loved 69ft narrow boat. She is currently moored in the beautiful Moorhen Marina in Essex, just outside of London.Emily is very spacious, wider than most narrow boats, she measures 2.1 metres in width. Her ceiling is also higher than most and measures 6ft 4 inches.The living room is large and is fitted with a Morso Squirrel stove which is fitted with a back boiler, this warms up water that travels along the pipes to heat two traditional column radiators (one fitted in the bathroom and the other in the bedroom). This system works by convection, so no electricity is needed. She stays very warm in the winter! The kitchen is also on the large side. It includes a 12-volt fridge/freezer, a gas oven, fitted cupboards. A customised breakfast bar and two fitted shelving units.The bathroom has just been re-tiled and fitted with a brand-new pioneering Swedish compost toilet (bought for £700). The bathroom is fitted with a sit-down bath and a shower. Hot water is powered by a Morco LPG water heater.The bedroom is fitted with a queen size mattress which sits on a wooden frame, this contains an ample amount of storage space. The bedroom also has a fitted triple door wardrobe on the left and a customised built-in double wardrobe on the right, with built-in shelves underneath. You will never be stuck for storage space! The bedroom doors open on to the stern, this is where we have our breakfast table in the summer. The back of the boat has an even larger deck space, which is perfect for BBQs or to just sit outside of an evening with a bottle of wine.Emily is incredibly bright with ten stunning arched windows throughout, two skylights and doors opening from both ends of the boat.Emily is also fitted with four large solar panels. The solar panels power the fridge all year round, as well as the led lights and a double USB charging port - perfect for continuous cruising. Last year Emily was re-wired with a brand-new 12-volt power supply for when she is cruising. She has also just been re-wired with a brand-new 240-volt supply which is extremely handy if you are wishing to moor in a marina. She is fitted with a large water tank holding 430 litres.The interior and exterior have just been repainted.We have been living on Emily for the past seven years, continuously cruising through London’s waterways. We have spent the past two years living in the beautiful Moorhen Marina,15 miles north of London. When we bought Emily, she was fully gutted. We re-painted her and laid new ballast (concrete blocks). A brilliant boat mechanic fitted a beta marina engine and the boat was taken out of the water and re-blacked. A carpenter laid new wooden floorboards and completed the fittings.The engine room has just been repainted, and customised buffalo deck boards have just been fitted. Emily was surveyed and re-blacked last year (2018) - please feel free to email us for a copy.We have had a magical time living on this boat and are only selling as we are moving from the water back on to land!Emily is located in the Moorhen Marina, in Harlow, Essex, just northeast of London.
