ECLIPSE IS A tra­di­tional un­der­cloth con­ver­sion, built by the highly re­garded Barry Hawkins with the in­ter­nal fit-out by Barry Hawkins and Nor­ton Canes. The cur­rent own­ers have blacked her an­nu­ally and the Gard­ner en­gine had a bot­tom end re­build last Novem­ber 2016.

The sa­loon, with 6ft 6 in head­room, has two wardrobes, a large sofa – which serves as dou­ble bed – and lots of cup­board and shelf space. There is a work sta­tion and two side hatches, both with ac­cess steps. There are prism lights along the ceil­ing. The gal­ley has a cooker and a12v fridge/freezer (sub­ject to ne­go­ti­a­tion). The walk­through bath­room has a tiled quad­rant shower, cas­sette loo, and a ce­ramic basin over van­ity unit.

The clean en­gine room housers the Gard­ner 2LW en­gine, the calori­fier, in­verter and so­lar panel man­age­ment sys­tem. The boat­man’s cabin is com­plete with scum­ble, roses & castles.
