An opportunity to purchase a much loved and maintained narrowboat, Monty is a 57ft semi-traditional boat fitted with a rebuilt John Dorman 3AL she is offered for sale at £69,950.
A brief history of her
The shell was built by Equinox and then fitted out by a professional boat fitter/carpenter, a boat survey was conducted on the completion of the build by the current owner in 2008 prior to purchase.
She was originally a traditional boat and was converted in 2016 to a semi-traditional boat when she was also taken back to bare steel and repainted, had a bow thruster fitted, and was two-packed on the bottom along with new anodes.
She has been re-blacked with two pack in 2022 with a weed cutter being fitted to the propeller shaft at the same time.
The John Dorman 3LA was subject to a rebuild in 2016 and has completed just 385 hours since.
