DUNNIT (Index #101418)
Dunnit is a unique 33 ft 8 inch GRP home-built cruiser stern style narrowboat. She was carefully planned to make maximum use of her space, crafted of quality materials and affords all the essentials one would need to make their cruising experience enjoyable. Completion was in 1993. Current owner (second) purchased in April 2012. Since that time the engine has undergone a complete re-build, an immersion pump fitted, and a 2000 watt Waeco inverter installed.
As stated, Dunnit is a unique boat. She was designed as a prototype for a company that intended marketing boats, size determined by the number of sections purchased. She consisted of five molded sections. For whatever reason this concept was never marketed and the sections sat in a warehouse for years before being offered for sale. The original owner purchased these five sections and actually built and assembled Dunnit outside his residence. The molds had since been destroyed so she truly is one-of-a-kind!
Dunnit has all the “kit” for providing the comforts one might expect living on their little floating home. Her small size makes it easy to navigate and manoeuvre single-handedly while her open floorplan and abudance of windows makes her seem so much larger! She has proved to be perfect for her current owner and it is with regrets that she is now being offered for sale.
The Particulars from one end to the other:
Stern (covered) is a nice size (7 foot) with lift-up cover for easy access to engine bay. Built-in seat easily converts to a fair size bed to enjoy in nice weather. Morse control panel and fold-down wind screen. Separate storage lockers for gas and batteries.
Step down and enter the rear cabin (6-1/2 foot) which contains built-in bunk beds, two windows, two-section wardrobe storage (electrical control panel and inverter inside one) and cabinet containing water pump.
Next enter the galley kitchen (6-1/2 foot) which contains one window with ample cabinets, gas cooker/hob/grill, sink and fridge. A full-size glass door enclosed shower is off to port side as well as a separate room containing toilet and sink.
Following is the saloon, a nice size room (6-1/2 foot) with three windows, containing a built-in cabinet (hiding the calorifier) housing the TV and opposite wall consisting of built-in shelves.
Finally, you find the dining section (4-1/2 foot) containing a table with built-in seating either side comfortably accommodating four and affording fantastic views with its window surround. Table easily lets down to make into a double bed.
