Eclipse No2 is a 60ft traditionally styled narrowboat, built by the renowned S. M. Hudson Boat Builders 2001 and fitted with a beautiful Gardner 2LW engine.
Crafted by experts in the industry, Eclipse No2 has been fitted with quality materials to include both solid Oak and Mahogany. The equipment used is also some of the best available, complementing and enhancing the otherwise traditional look with modern convenience and performance.
Originally fitted with a Beta JD3, this was removed in 2007 to make room for the rebuilt Gardner 2LW which stands beautifully in the engine room and can be heard soulfully running by passers-by who may even admire through the side doors should they be open.
Accommodation on board means that four can comfortably be seated for dining whilst up to 5 may sleep.
Overall Eclipse No2 is in my opinion a great example of What an S.M. Hudson boat should be with an elegant sweeping josher style bow and a traditional design which centers on a beautiful engine.
