For sale: 50ft Viking Widebeam canal boat (named ‘The Incredible Thing’) robustly built with 10mm/6mm/5mm/4mm steel plating in 2010. She was the second Viking build to join the London waterways. She has always been in my family and is much loved.
The engine is Betamarine-50 with 1251 engine hours and an excellent condition engine bay. The engine has been serviced at Springfield Marina in May 2020 and the boat safety certificate was renewed in 2020. The Incredible Thing was re-painted in a minimalist cream and cherry colourway in August 2017 and she should remain in great condition for a minimum of 8 years. The hull has been blacked twice in her life, most recently in 2018 at Bulls Bridge dry dock where she received a glowing review and a recommendation to extend the time between blacking. There is a 3 solar panel setup and 4 leisure batteries installed in 2016 with an easy to use battery protection monitor safety feature. The power saving 12v lighting circuit and USB charging points are complimented by a 2000w Victron inverter.
From the stern she has a large open plan living room (with a Morso Squirrel stove, Webasto central heating radiators, indoor bike storage and skylight) and kitchen (with solid walnut wall shelving, Waeco 12v fridge/freezer, ceramic sink and beautiful bamboo countertops with extendable bar-top feature). There is a bookshelf lined corridor and the bathroom is fitted with a corner shower, Jabsco pump-out toilet with fill gauge, shower with excellent pressure, a Skandi-style sink, wall mirror, and a twin tub washing machine. At the bow, the bedroom has been designed to maximise storage space with a built in queen size bed flanked by bedside shelves and wardrobes and plenty of under bed storage, including storage space, drawers and shoe shelves.
Complete with white marine ply walls with walnut trim and bamboo flooring throughout, she is a beautiful boat and wonderfully spacious inside.
The Incredible Thing is currently CC-ing along the River Lee. She will make a beautiful home for one person or a couple and is she ready to go. She is a perfect cruiser for London, excellent to handle, fun and easy to drive.
