Jensen is a 42’ traditional stern narrowboat built here at Stowe Hill in 1989. She has been in the care of the same owner for the whole of her life.
She is a typical Stowe Hill boat...full of charm and personality, oozing a cosy feel throughout with the sapele and oak fit out and carpeted floors.
The steps from the well deck lead into the saloon. A nicely proportioned room housing an L shaped sofa (which converts into a spare bed), a solid fuel stove and a drop leaf dining table. There is also a TV aerial point over the cupboard by the door.
A good sized storage cupboard sits in between the sofa and the galley. The galley itself is very light and airey with a side hatch opposite the sink and a houdini hatch in the roof. Utilities comprise of a three way fridge (with icebox), a 4 burner gas hob, oven and grill, and a sink with separate draining unit. There is plenty of storage in here.
The bathroom follows, with it’s Traveler pump out loo, curtained shower cubicle and counter sunk basin. There is also a floor to ceiling wardrobe concealed behind the door.
The bedroom contains a fixed 6’2” x 4’ bed (storage under), there are cupboards and reading lights over the pillow end, and a good sized shelving cupboard at the foot of the bed. There is a second floor to ceiling wardrobe at the end of the bed accessed from the corridor.
The engine room is at the stern. The easily accessible Vetus is housed under the floor boards along with the batteries.
On board 230v is generated from either the 1800w inverter or the landline, and hot water is provided by the Rinnai gas instant hot water boiler.
With the storage and sleeping options that she offers, Jensen feels longer than 42 feet. She would make for a very comfortable floating home, or a simply charming holiday boat.
