Moonlight is a 58’ 10” semi trad narrowboat from the well regarded John White (Liverpool) in 1994 and fitted out by Bridgewater Boat Builders. She was then lengthened from 50 feet by Stone Boatbuilding in 2004 to her present dimensions. She has wonderfully rich woodwork to the saloon - Pullman coach style, with mahogany and sycamore inlay.
The boat is entered via the rear doors, two high level wooden perch seats allow a comfortable steering position on either side above spacious storage lockers. Below is the reliable Nanni Kubota 36hp engine and battery bank.
Down into the stern cabin / bedroom; plenty of storage here in the wardrobe, cupboards and under bed drawers. The bed is 4’6” wide and is a quickly erected cross bed. Low level fin rads heat the boat along the corridor through the boat.
Next comes the bathroom, with its pump out toilet, vanity sink unit and shower. There is a large wardrobe accessible from the corridor as well.
The galley is light and airy with a side hatch and has all you need; a 12v fridge with icebox, 4 burner gas hob, oven & grill, twin tub washing machine and storage a-plenty in the dresser style wall unit.
The large saloon follows, about 20 feet altogether with a 3 seater dinette (with fourth dining seat on demo leg) to one side and plenty of storage options in the many shelves and cupboards surrounding the diesel stove with tiled surround. A pair of comfy chairbeds are in this area. The woodwork is rich and curvy, quite unique.
The good size well deck is through the glazed doors, beyond which is a storage locker. A separate diesel tank is underneath for the stove.
All the windows have flyscreens and the coach style windows have blackout blinds. Lighting on board is all LED, and hot water is via the engine or immersion.
The paintwork is in reasonable condition & the fit out is a good one. The current owners have owned her since new and have really cared for her.
Re-painted by Andy Russell in 2010, recent blacking & recent service, there is nothing to do to her but enjoy the canals.
