Otter is a 71ft long x 6ft 10in wide, narrowboat built by Yarwoods FMC Joshua in 1928. She is fitted with a Lister JP3 3 cylinder 35hp diesel inboard engine and no berths as it is a working boat.

This is a rare opportunity to purchase an original, 1928 Yarwoods FMC Joshua bow, working boat.  Otter has a beautifully maintained Lister JP3 3 cylinder, hand crank start, diesel engine with speed wheel controls.  Her hull has been refurbished with a new mild steel bottom plate; but welded on to a new mild steel footing which in turn has been butt welded onto the original iron sides.  The cargo hold has been partially converted to a steel frame with solid steel sided.  The boatman’s cabin needs some completion but is fitted with recently fitted Epping stove.
