|General comments about the boat|
The engine room at the rear is fitted
with a 4 cylinder Nanni diesel which is original and is still in good
working condition and is very economical.
The rear cabin contains a double bed which folds to allow access into the engine room. There is also a three drawer cabinet and a wardrobe that also contains the hot water tank feed from the engine and heats the toilet area next door.
The toilet area is fitted with a wash basin, flushing toilet and overhead shower system. There is a separate pump-out system for the shower and a very large effluent tank for pumping out waste.
The centre of the boat has two fold back side hatches that allows fresh air in with a stepped cupboard allowing side exit as required.
The kitchen is fitted with a cooker, grill and 4 burner hob. An insert stainless steel sink fitted with a cold water filter system, a regulation fridge is also fitted beneath the worktop.
The dining area has a table hinged to the wall to accommodate the diners and this will drop down to make another double bed.
The lounge is light and spacious with a large full width 'L' shaped settee which converts into a double bed. A Moroso stove sits at the front which heats the area as required and also heats the two radiators towards the back end of the boat.
The front of the boat contains two seating areas with storage underneath and easy access to the cold water tank.

General Comments by vendor
Tess is a well maintained traditional narrow boat and we are seeking boaters who share our aim to keep Tess to a high standard to join our small friendly group. With only six members we can offer reasonable flexibility boating and change-over points if desired, by agreement with each other.
When the boat is handed over from one member to the next it needs to be suitably cleaned and tidied and left in good condition ready to cruise again.
(Comments re bookings and boat location)
The booking system is
usually organised by one person at the beginning of the
year. We sometimes have a member's meeting at the end of the
season when details of what we want to do with Tess in the
next year is discussed and agreed. We usually work on a
maximum of two weeks at any one time, but this can vary if
it does not cause a problem.
