  • Sold
  • 62FT
  • Traditional
  • 1996

Shrewsbury is a 62ft trad style narrowboat build by Steve Hudson 1996 and fitted by Blue haven Marine to a very good standard.

Equipped to be used as a multi user boat Shrewsbury has a total of 8 berths, 4 fixed and 4 converting from dinettes.

Ideally suited to family use and with plenty of room for guests too.

Equipment includes a 43Hp Beta Marine engine, Victron 2Kw inverter and Victron 60Amp battery charger.

Internally the boat has been cared for and maintained very well with new carpet being a recent addition.

Externally the boat looks excellent; the black cream and red paintwork captures the traditional style and design of the hull which includes a josher style bow, recessed rear panels and faux rivets.

A genuinely attractive boat you can also rest assured that this boat will handle well on the water thanks to the beautifully crafted S. M. Hudson design.

They really don’t make them like they used to and unfortunately a new S. M Hudson boat isn’t possible so why not invest in a second hand example of these beautiful boats.
