J C Forbes - Trawler
Premier Houseboats are pleased to present this classic wooden trawler, nicely converted to a charming houseboat with a fully working engine to cruise.
Smiling Morn has been tastefully sympathetically converted by its current owner, with much thought given to ease of living whilst not losing the character of the boat.
Internally, the wheelhouse has been part converted to shower room and toilet, whilst still retaining its original use as the main navigation point.
Below decks is the main living area, consisting of galley in the forward cabin, separate cabin currently used for storage , and the main saloon which doubles as a sleeping area, whilst not overly impacting on the living area.
The main living area houses the multi fuel burning stove that heats the whole boat with ease, and there is an electric hot water heater. Again, internally there is comfort without any loss of character, and gives a traditional and homely feel.
Externally, Smiling Morn offers good deck space to enjoy your surroundings. The boat was slipped in 2012, and has been well maintained by its current owner.
A charming floating home for the enthusiast, Smiling Morn offers character, space and affordability.
