  1. Hello there! I'm retired and am looking to do something better with my savings than have them earning a meagre interest rate in an account. I had been looking at static caravans, as a holiday home and to rent out, but the fees seem ridiculously high. I then thought about the canal holiday I had years ago and how peaceful it was, so I'm now thinking about getting a narrowboat in Northwest England to use and to rent out. I'm aware of the certificates it'll need and the annual cost of running a narrowboat, but as I'm completely new to this, I'm aware that there's LOADS that I don't know. So...... 1. Is it a viable idea? 2. If I had someone (Hoeseasons?) managing the rentals, cleaning etc, what would they charge and are there any rules about the boat's age, size etc? 3. I'm not looking for a large boat and have a budget of £30K. Would it be better to buy a project boat cheaply and pay for refitting it or get a better boat that needs less work? 4. I'll pay for full hull and engine surveys. Can you recommend a decent surveyor? Thanks in advance for your replies. Chris
  2. hi looking for some advice been looking at buying or been told it’s a mid 1970 canal boat fibre glass top and steal bottom not sure what the make or model it’s got 5 digit number starting with 7 it has no hull report or no history needs a little TLC it has a log burner hot water cooker toilet shower all ready to go would be grateful if anyone can advice on if it’s worth the buy and if so or how much it would be worth it’s got a Isuzu engine and 3years safety certificate been told there’s a long waiting list to get the boats out the water in my area any info would be grate thanks
  3. Hello again So the situation from here changed for the better ? I let the buyer who wanted the ridiculously large contract go a few weeks ago (a contract from a template which he also altered!!) and now I have two cash buyers interested in the boat. I do not require a deposit and neither of them require a survey, so what would be the best and easiest way to conclude this deal? Both buyers would require the boat to be delivered a long way away from where it is now, which I am very happy to oblige as it will be a sort of farewell to my beloved vessel, but I do not wish to have that on the contract, and I am only willing to take off after the money is in my account. I will leave naturally all the paperwork from when I originally purchase the boat with them, but as I may leave the country next year I want to make sure they will have a solid contract should they wish to sell the boat on later. I also obviously want to make sure that I don't have any problems. So I'm thinking: 1. I fill the simple bill of sale similar to the one from a friend of mine I'm posting here (but without the "and delivers to" bit) and post it to the buyer. 2. He fills his bit. 3. He wires the money to my account. 4. From the moment I check the money is in my account the boat is his, and I notify the Canal and River Trust and the insurance company. Am I supposed to have a copy of the bill of sale or do we both fill and sign one copy for each? Am I missing stuff? This bill of sale does not say anything like "upon receipt of funds". Please let me know what you think. Thanks
  4. Hi all, I'm new to narrow boats and currently looking for my first purchase to live on! I have a budget of £35K, and with that amount I do expect to buy something that I'm prepared to do some work on to either update things, or just modernise the interior. I've seen a boat advertised online (link below) that size wise and fit out wise really meet my specifications, and from the look of the interior there'd be no work that I would have to do. My question to you all is, why is it so cheap for what you seem to get? I'm still learning what factors make a difference to the price, but for this boat the only disadvantages seem to be a boat builder (Conmac) that I can't find anything on, its an owner fit out, and the paintwork seems very scruffy. No info on hull condition (no recent survey), and the blacking hasn't been done since 2017. https://www.greathaywoodboatsales.co.uk/shop/hydra-3/ If you wouldn't mind taking a look for me and offering some advice for a newbie, I would really appreciate it. Thanks!
  5. Hello everyone, Hope you don't mind but I'd like to ask your advice again as I'm still hunting for the right boat. I'm interested in this boat on apollo duck http://www.apolloduck.com/feature.phtml?id=490723 She's just been reduced from £41,000 to £38,000 after being on a few weeks. In April 2016 she was washed,scraped and hammered the hull and had two coats of Intertuf 16 applied and 4 new anodes fitted as the old ones were at 40%. She had a hull report performed in April 2016 which showed "There was rust around the water line and rust scale and lime scale present. There was pitting below the water line on the sides to a depth of 0.5mm, these were in irregular sizes ranging from 5-30mm. There was evidence of zinc phosphate primer. The base plate sacrificial edge dld not appear to be damaged. Recommendations:Boats with bitumen hull coatings should be blacked every two years". Your advice is greatly appreciated on what you think of her as you helped me massively last time and avoided me making a fairly big boo boo. I'm new to this, so your experience is invaluable. Thanks so much for your input, Melissa
