Ruby – 57’ Colecraft Cruiser Stern – 1985 – Private Mooring.

Ruby is a 57’ all steel cruiser stern narrowboat built in 1985 by Colecraft. Propulsion is provided by a BMC Diesel engine. This vessel has been over plated and has had recent updating to the interior.

Entering the craft from the large cruiser stern, first is a small storage area / utility room which houses the electric cupboard, storage and space where a washing machine or similar could be located. Forward of this area is a sitting room which houses the solid fuel stove. This room includes 2 x arm chairs and freestanding furniture. Forward of this is the galley with fridge, newly fitted freestanding gas cooker and plenty of storage. The next room forward is another sitting room with sofa. This could easily be converted to either a dinette or a 2nd bedroom. Next is a walkthrough bathroom with bath/shower to starboard and porta potti and handbasin to port. At the front of the boat is a bedroom with 2 single berths. This then leads out onto a standard front well deck.
