Canal Boat - - This Month - GE­OR­GIAN STAR

A se­lec­tion of used beau­ties

Ge­or­gian Star is a very tra­di­tion­ally styled 55ft nar­row­boat with a mid-en­gine room and clas­sic Rus­sell New­bery DM2 and a Newage PRM gear­box. Built and fit­ted out by Stowe Hill Marine the boat has rus­tic yet com­fort­able feel and in­cor­po­rates both oak hard­wood and cream pan­elling

The in­te­rior is laid out from stern to bow with the fol­low­ing rooms; boat­man’s cabin, en­gine room, walk-through bath­room, dinette / liv­ing area and gal­ley. In ad­di­tion to this there is also a very large stor­age com­part­ment be­neath the tug style fore­deck.

Keep­ing warm is not a prob­lem as the four-berth Ge­or­gian Star has two solid fuel stoves – a Godin solid fuel stove in the liv­ing area and a Premier stove in the boat­man’s cabin – plus an Eberspacher diesel cen­tral heat­ing, a Vic­tron 3.0Kw combi in­verter-charger and a Tecma pump-out WC sys­tem.

The boat is fit­ted with a fixed four-seat Pull­man style dinette as well as an up­hol­stered bench type seat­ing in the boat­man’s cabin.
