    Black Velvet, a stunning 58ft Traditional Narrowboat, presents an exceptional blend of classic design and modern upgrades, making it a standout choice for canal enthusiasts. Built in 2005 by Liverpool Boat Co and expertly fitted out by Keel Boat Services Ltd, this vessel showcases a unique reverse layout that optimises living space and functionality.

    Starting from the stern, the layout unfolds with a well-appointed galley featuring all-new appliances as of December 2023, including a ceramic hob, combination microwave, and a 12v fridge, complemented by brand new worktops and cupboards. The saloon area is spacious, designed to accommodate a 4-seater sofa and includes a solid fuel stove for warmth, alongside ample storage solutions. The new L-shaped dinette not only offers additional seating and dining space but also incorporates significant storage. The bathroom is a model of modern convenience, with an enclosed full-size shower, a washbasin with a chrome mixer tap, vanity unit, a Thetford cassette toilet, and a brand-new washing machine. The bedroom features a full-size double crossover bed with a new mattress and a variety of cupboards, providing generous storage space and wooden glazed doors that open onto the well deck, inviting natural light and scenic views.

    Black Velvet is powered by a robust Barrus Shire 40hp engine paired with a PRM 150 gearbox, showing 1,600 engine hours and having been last serviced in December 2023. The boat's electrical needs are met through the engine, shoreline hook-up, domestic batteries, and a 3Kw Victron Inverter/Charger, with new AGM batteries installed in December 2023. For heating, alongside the solid fuel stove, hot water is supplied by the engine, a calorifier, and immersion.

    The boat boasts a fresh exterior with a full repaint in 2022 and received a complete Jotun 2 Pack Epoxy treatment in February 2024, ensuring long-lasting protection and a sleek appearance. With a Boat Safety Certificate valid until July 2026, Black Velvet is not just visually appealing but also fully compliant with safety standards.

    This narrowboat is ready to embark on new adventures with its next owners, having undergone an extensive internal refit and mechanical servicing. Whether you're cruising through tranquil canals or mooring in picturesque locations, Black Velvet offers a blend of comfort, style, and reliability, making it an ideal home on the water or a luxurious recreational retreat.
