Hello, my name is Stephen. Back in the 2000s my Uncle George and his son, Terry bought this houseboat as a vacation property. They were boating all around the UK and proudly supported the canal river trust. I am unfortunately selling their boat aptly named, George & Terry, a beautiful widebeam narrowboat built by Collingwood in 2001. My own son does not want it and would prefer to live in a flat. It is fitted out to a high standard and available on a secure residential mooring. The layout of George & Terry has been well thought and completed to a high specification, ensuring comfortable living space throughout, and can be a cruising home, static home or a mixture of the two depending on your preference. The main living area is a delight, with plenty of headroom and light, and extremely spacious. The kitchen area has a fantastic amount of storage and work top, and comes with built in gas oven and hob, fridge, freezer and washing machine with dryer. The spacious saloon area has a lovely multi fuel burner that can compliment, or be used instead of, the full Webasto central heating. The boat does not come furnished.
The shower room houses a toilet, hand basin and large shower cubicle, together with plenty of storage. The double cabin is again spacious, with built in bed and again plenty of storage. The covered wheel house area provides both an excellent navigation point, and plenty of seating to enjoy the surroundings wherever you may find yourself. The 70hp Barrus Shire diesel engine provides plenty of power for cruising, and the 240l fuel tank, 425l water tank and 250l blackwater tank give you the ability to travel tidal or non tidal waterways.
Externally George & Terry is in excellent condition, and has just had new anodes fitted.
