Sloley is a 57ft Trad style narrowboat built by Mike Christian Boat Builders & Dream Narrowboats 2012.

Designed to be a long term cruiser this Dream Narrowboat was equipped with 3.5Kw Travel Power, a large inverter / charger, washing machine and a Vetus 42Hp engine as well as solar panals fitted on the roof of the boat. Originally equipped with gas central heating this has been updated with a Webasto diesel central heating system 2017.

The interior has a conventional layout with a living area, pullman style dinette, galley, shower room, bedroom and aft storage area to the Trad stern.

Throughout Sloley is fitted in a mix of solid Oak, Ash and Sapele hard woods with the minimal use of Oak veneered panelling for bulkheads and below the gunwales.

Bought by the current and only owners at the Crick Boat Show 2012 Sloley has been well cared for these past 6 years; re-painted, serviced and updated sympathetically.

Overall Sloley is a great example of the boats which Dream narrowboats produced and furthermore it’s a testament to the owners care and attention.

Sloley is a quality boat; if you’re not sure just come and see for yourself…
