Narrow boat for sale

We spent a couple of days relaxedly drifting up to Foxton and back for what could be the final voyage of our ownership of Patience. Yes, John and Duncan are putting dear Patience up for sale after ten years of delightful trips and good companionship. We took our wives with us to enjoy the boating and  relax into the dappled shade and warm sun between Welford and Foxton. Surprisingly few boats out on the water and lots of room to moor. Foxton Locks looked attractive in the summer evening sun.
And so ten happy years, first at Stretham, then Oundle and finally Welford - all convenient and comfortable moorings - comes to an end. Patience is in good shape, comfortable and sound, having been maintained to the highest standard throughout. We'll be sad to leave her, but she deserves someone who will use her more frequently and perhaps take her on new adventures.

If you are interested, add a comment below and we'll get back to you and arrange a viewing. There is interest at Welford already!
For the record she is 45 feet long, (as long as the cabin of the new Gulfstream G600 jet but compact enough to fit into every part of the canal system), built in 1994 and in very good shape. She is currently comfortably moored at Welford off the Leicester branch of the Grand Union and though we cannot guarantee that our mooring will be available in future, the marina owners would be open to discussion.
She has four berths, a new stove, a pump-through toilet, gas hob and oven, 12volt fridge and we'll include cutlery and cooking kit plus boating spares and paint. Anything else, just ask!
