L’Experience is a narrowboat like no other, built with no expense spared to look like a carriage in the Orient Express, the result is absolutely stunning.
Throughout the vessel, the finest materials have been used to recreate the iconic train, marble, inlaid wood and fine leather and a beautiful tiled floor.
The boat is 57ft which makes her the perfect size; able to cruise the entire canal network without sacrificing space.
Sleeping wise, there are four bunks aft with the front sofa area converting into a double bed. We have spoken to a specialist carpenter who tells us that he could convert the rear cabin into a large double (removing the bunks and one sink, and making good to the same high standard). We have an estimate for this.
There is a BSS until December and a recent survey available to view (on-site only). Power comes from a Beta marine engine in good working order. Hot water from a calorifier and heat courtesy of a lovely wood burner.
This would make a lovely, luxurious home for someone and there’s plenty more to discover about this vessel if you’d like to come and view.
There may be either a residential or leisure mooring available with the boat (subject to a discussion with the marina owner). Alternatively, she could be cruised away today.
