Narrow Escape is a 53ft Trad, built by Peter Nicholls the hull with its long swim which can be seen from within the cabin provides long strikingly elegant lines in the water.
Fitted by Witham Narrowboats the interior has a traditional feel that remains light and airy throughout thanks to the great use of natural light and simple paintwork in the off-set bathroom.
The woodwork features predominantly solid oak which really catches your eyes and draws you through the boat providing the cabin with a larger than life feel.
Equipment is also good; there is a 3.0Kw inverter, solar panel, Sterling battery charger, Candy washing machine and diesel stove just to name the larger items. Ideal for extended cruising with the on board equipment Narrow Escape is a great prospect.
Powered by a Perkins MC42 Narrow Escape has a generous amount of thrust available for exploring the waterways whilst being both manageable and practical on a day-to-day basis.
Narrow Escape could be my favourite boat this year and I hope that others are just as interested in the wonderful example.
