History
Moonraker – No. 916 was built in the Stone Pier Yard in Warsash when they took over the design and build of the narrowboats after the Morgan Giles Yard in Teignmouth closed down. She was built for the Morgan Giles Narrowboat Hire Company that operated from the Ayhho Yard near Banbury, so was originally a hire boat. It is believed that she was the last one to be built. She was ordered on the 26th October 1974 and delivered in February 1975. She was originally named Twyford Mariner. It was presumed that she was A.Y.B. to the Anglo Welsh Canal Boats in 1978. A copy of the 1967 General Arrangement Plans for the 43.5 ft narrowboat is available from the Morgan Giles Archive at the Teign Heritage Centre.

Description
She has a small seating area on the bow.
The door frame has recently been replaced and a new door containing the original window is to be fitted. The majority of ceiling, wall and floor panels have been replaced and insulated.
A bespoke diesel tank is neatly placed to the left of the door which serves the diesel stove which is now connected and fully operational.
All plumbing pipes are installed and ready to connect.
The stove and the start of a large seating area which will double up as spare beds has replaced the original bunks.
The bathroom is small, however the is scope to expand to nearly doubld its size.
The lighting has been replaced with set in ceiling spotlights throughout the central ceiling strip and bathroom.
The original dinette although currently dismantled, is on board.
The original olive green galley unit is in great condition. I have replaced the galley seating area with a solid oak worktop under which is lots of storage space.
The cabin area comprises, steering wheel, a fabulous spacious and comfortable seating area, the seats and ratchet cover are in very good condition.
She has a new tunnel light and horn.
The engine is in working order.
Some of the external repairs have been successfully completed.

ENGINE: Isuzu marine diesel 70hp engine was fully serviced in 2019, starts on the button first time, every time. Cooled by saddle tanks, so very reliable. These boats usually have a 40hp engine, so this was a factory upgrade.

Does not come with a mooring, but I can keep it on the current mooring for a few weeks while you sort out a location or just go crusing!

Happy to take viewings at pretty much anytime.

Can arrange delivery by separate negotiation.

Boat is currently in Cookham Deam SL6 9RQ

Albox, Spain

Owner selling Daddy Longlegs 65ft Narrowboat just scammed me for £500. He took a goodwill gesture from me of £500 to hold her, put his mind at rest and my mind at rest that we had agreed a price, then he gave me 2 weeks, extended to 4 weeks, to finalise the transaction or lose my goodwill gesture.

I live in Spain, and he knows that… isn’t that theft?
