Have you ever thought of living on water? Being close to nature, feeding ducks in the morning, navigating through canals, built almost 200 years ago and now being part of heritage, during the day and sleeping with nature at night? Mallard is a house on water in London, a 40 feet narrowboat, with environmentally sustainable solar system - a cozy floating home for you or few other persons (comfortably suitable to live for up to three persons). It is ready to move in home - fully functional, furnished with all kitchen appliances. The boat is built in 1975 and renovated numerous times since then. Mallard has a steel bottom and a fiberglass top. Mallard has a comfortable design allowing boating under the roof - it is built with the cabin in the middle of the boat, enabling a protection from rain and coldness. Boat is built with 8 solar panels (total 800W) and is one of the kind to be self-sustainable and environmentally friendly to produce sufficient electricity even during winter. There is no need to run the engine to charge the batteries. The boat is very quite to live in, since engine is used only for navigation purposes. In terms of accommodation, as you enter through the middle of the boat (can get in from both sides of the boat), you get straight to the NAVIGATION space, where the boat is controlled. This space has a comfortable steering wheel, placed dry and isolated under the floor engine and batteries, finally a solar power controller. This space also contains a convenient portable Thetford toilette (there is also a second to replace the first one), easy to use and empty out. Here you can take off the shoes, hang clothes, and store tools or equipment. At the BACK cabin of the boat there is a separate sleeping and resting room, where one or two persons can have a single or double bed (single at the moment). There is abundance of storage. Here also you can reach a weed hatch at the very back of the boat. Moving FRONT of the boat, on the right side there is a SHOWER room, washing basin, washing sink and washing/drying machine under the sink. Further there is a GALLEY space, with appliances to prepare food. The kitchen has a sink, fridge & freezer (powered by gas or electricity), a Spinflo Cara gas oven and a Morco gas boiler to provide instantly hot water to the shower and sink. It has a table to dine, few chairs, and lots of drawers to store kitchen equipment. Immediately after the kitchen there is a COZY ZONE, a space to work, rest, meet friends or to sleep - it has a single berth that can be transformed into double berth. Space has drawers and storage space under the bed. In the front you can find a Boatman wood and coal stove/log burner to heat the space during the winter time. Boat has a standing height of 5.9 feet from bottom to ceilings inside the boat. At the very front you will have an empty space for things to store or tea to drink during summer. There is a comfortable cover above. Speaking from technical perspective, Mallard has 3 Leisure and 1 Started batteries, wired throughout the boat with 12v and 240v system, with sockets all around the boat. You can use a normal home plug to charge your devices everywhere in the boat. Batteries are isolated with a switch, so that to have always a reserve charge for the engine to start. Batteries are connected to solar charger and engine, thus you can produce electricity from sun and engine. Solar controller is an advanced MPPT solar charger, a technique used to maximize power extraction under all conditions. Due to substantial amount of solar panels on the roof, even during the winter time or cloudy days you will not need to run the engine to charge batteries at day time. There is a powerful 1500w inverter with monitor to transform electricity from 12 to 240v. The hull (bottom) of the boat was visually inspected by surveyor (available to see the report upon viewing) and renovated 3 years ago. It has been overplated at the back of the boat and along the middle of the boat. New anodes were fitted and the boat was blacked in accordance to recommendations. The boat was painted and renovated from inside. An annual license with Canal & River Trust expires November 2019 and is extendable on an annual basis for £720. Boat has a valid BSSC Examination (Boat Safety Certificate) check (BSSER-296759/15), expiring October 2019 and extendable every four years. She is insured with a Craftinsure Limited, third party, valid up to November 2019 and extendable on annual basis for £75. She has taken approximately 100 miles over the last year (and 500 miles in 4 years) in different parts of London and England and has proved to work excellently.
