(Please read the following points first as the answer some of the most frequently asked questions - I received so far. Happy to answer any more you might have, of course. Thanks so much! Antonis)

- Little Kiwi is a lovely 30 ft narrow boat that I purchased in February 2019. The previous owner was a long-term resident who lived on board, in Nottingham, where LK still resides (at Nottingham Castle Marina), and she took great care of it.I have used the boat very little, due to Covid and heavy travelling before that. The only reason I am selling is because I am moving countries. I have kept the boat in great shape, replacing the fridge, mattress and shelves with high quality material and I will be very sad to let her go.

- No, there are no additional photos of the inside of the boat at this point. We can arrange for an in-person viewing, but I will need to know you are serious about purchasing Little Kiwi as I currently live around 500 miles further north!

- Little Kiwi’s front cover was professionally restitched, cleaned and reproofed early in 2020 – it’s really ready to see its new owner through many winters!

- When was the hull last blacked? I believe it was in the summer of 2018, a few months before I bought her. They did extra layers, so they had claimed she can stay in the water for at least 5-6 years, instead of the standard (which I believe is 2-3?)

- What engine does it have and is it running etc? It’s a 3 cylinder Lister, which I believe is rare (and great!) for a canal boat. The engine is running fine. There is only a small amount of smoke coming in the cabin when it runs, but I have been told this is only a matter of realigning the exhaust pipe. Obviously any potential buyers are most welcome to test it out and take her for a ride, as long as you know what you are doing!

- Has it had a hull survey recently? Yes, the boat was surveyed in January 2018 with excellent results. I have a copy of the survey report and it's attached to this ad.

- Does it have current boat safety certificate? Yes! Certificate Number – BSSER-342474/18 Certificate Expiry Date – 12/01/2022

- Does it have gas on board? Yes and it works fine. However the gas boiler needs to be maintained, it works on and off (see below).

- Are electrics 12, 240v or both? Both.

- Does it have hot water and shower? There is a hot water boiler and usually works fine, but sometimes there’s trouble with the ignition. I have tried to fix it but being located abroad doesn’t make this easy. It should be an easy fix.
