Hobbit is a 25ft Aintree Beetle, completed in October 2015 and kept very well by the owners. Hobbit has had a small following on social media so you may have already seen this boat?

No14 Hobbit is an earlier incarnation of the Beetle range of narrowboats offered for sale here at Aqueduct Marina; this example is a very good one featuring the 4 berth layout and compact 25ft length.

Fully equipped for weekends and short holidays these boats make an ideal starter boat with added extras such as a solar panel and combi-inverter for 230v power on board as standard.

Fitted with a reliable Beta Marine engine Hobbit has only accrued 680 hrs of run time in an otherwise active life.

Also quipped with a cruising kit, TV and spare Thetford cassette this little boat is ready for an adventure…. although maybe not to Middle Earth along with the Shireling’s
