Leprechaun is a 40ft cruiser style narrowboat built by Mike Heywood circa 1980. Re-plated 2009 with a 6mm base and 5mm side plating. The hull has been surveyed and shot blasted before being blacked with a 2 pack epoxy in 2015. Generally speaking the boat has been well maintained by the current owner.
The interior of the boat is painted in white and currently offers accommodation for up to two. Unconventional in layout the rooms are as follows; fore living area fitted with a stove, bedroom with fixed bed, galley and corridor with offset bathroom compartment.
Externally the boat has a striking Leprechaun themed livery including both signwriting and pictorial transfers.
Leprechaun is a basic boat ideal for starting out or possibly to be considered as a cheap live aboard?
