Engine(s)

"Assumption Is" is a character and spacious 68' (20.7m) narrow boat. Built in 1998 to 10:6:5 specs it has a good sized cruiser deck and josher style bows. She was totally refitted and completed in 2008. The completely rebuilt Perkins 4108 diesel engine has a TMP 2:1 gearbox (rebuilt by TMP), twin 75 amp alternators, a centraflex coupling and a large heavy duty starting battery.

The boat is supplied with both 12v and 240v throughout, with plenty of sockets. These are powered by 4x110amp leisure batteries and a 4kw inverter. The marine charger is the 3 stage 40 amp Newmar model.

Accommodation

The walk through bathroom has a modern themostatic shower, with a pigeon box located above to allow steam and condensation out, as well as allowing even 6'+ folk to stand underneath it. The basin is of a round modern design with tower tap, set below a wall mounted 2 foot square oak framed mirror. The swivel toilet comes with two cassettes and has a book shelf above for essential reading. There is a Candy 3/4 size washing machine, and, as throughout the boat, a choice of either bright ceiling recessed spots, or dimmer wall lights, switchable at either door. The large water tank provides water for 1-3 weeks, depending on usage.

The front cabin has a metal bed. There is a fitted wardrobe with large drawer and additional shelving.

The kitchen has hardwood surfaces and a modern stainless steel sink and drainer, a full size gas oven and 1/2 size freezer. The unique bespoke arts and craft style cupboards offer plenty of storage.

The living area has over 15 foot of open plan area to play with, at present occupied by a dining table/desk and sofa bed. The multi fuel stove is a Villager Heron and sits opposite the hifi/tv shelving and a superb large double hatch for those essential views. An Alde gas central heating boiler runs the boats radiators, with the thermostat located in the bedroom. The gas locker has space for two gas bottles, up to 19kg in size.

All the windows have handsome and unobtrusive removable security grilles, which can be stored with more in the large forward chain locker when not in use. Both the front and back doors into the boat are steel for added security.

Equipment

The hot water is provided either by the engine, the Alde boiler (independently or with the central heating) or an immersion heater.

Plumbing is also in place for the installation of a back-boiler on the stove, which easily heats the whole boat.
