30x10ft Dutch steel river cruiser

Hakuna Matata is an extraordinary boat; she looks like a meerkat but has the heart of a lion. Made from Dutch steel, the hull has been very well looked after and thicknesses have been maintained throughout. The superstructure is in similar shape and there is a driving position on the flybridge as well as the wheelhouse.
The boat is well equipped and there is an opportunity to convert the twin berths in the rear cabin to a spacious double. There is a Eberspacher hot air heating system installed (my recommendation would be to replace this with a modern parking heater, all the ducting and pipework could be reused making it a very cost effective conversion).
There is a sea toilet which we will be happy to close off as part of the sale. The galley is served by a large stainless steel water tank and there is a hob and fridge.
The whole vessel has been well made and with very little effort, she could be modernised as a lovely liveaboard. The real surprise is in the engine room however; there’s a gorgeous six cylinder DAF engine which starts on the key (no need for glows). Pushing over 100hp, this beast of an engine will propel the vessel to eye watering speeds. She’ll also tick over at 3 knots all day long for moving serenely through the canal system. I’d happily take her over the channel to the continent, a very capable vessel.
This lovely boat will be snapped up very quickly so don’t hang about. You can view her at Hemel Marina HP1 2RZ, Tuesday-Saturday 9-5. Please let me know when you’d like to come.
