Life’s 2 Short is a 62ft Cruiser style narrowboat built by Piper Boats and fitted by the owner Stephen Burrows 2011.

A well assembled boat Life’s 2 Short has been a live aboard to the thoughtful, caring owner who has years of experience on the canals and building his own boats.

The interior is light throughout with adjoining cooking, eating and living spaces. The bathroom is a spacious walkthrough design and the forward cabin offers a simple sleeping space with ample storage.

Equipped for long term cruising with a 3.5Kw Victron Combi, 130Amp Mastervolt Pro-V alternator and a Hoover 6Kg washing machine; Life’s 2 Short doesn’t need to visit town except for vital supplies, diesel and water.

Based on a Piper hull Life’s 2 Short has a nice shape, quality look and eye catching paint work.

Painted in calming blue red and cream colours with excellent effect.

Overall a boat that offers great potential for living aboard or cruising with a full 6 person crew of friends and family.
