We are delighted to offer another Sea Otter for sale, this time a delightful and completely original 41’. Aficionado’s will recognise the Sea Otter brand immediately for their innovative design, unrivalled standards of engineering and for taking the build quality of inland waterways boats to a new level.

Built in 2005, from offshore grade aluminium, “Eau de Vie” (French slang for brandy) was commissioned to a high specification including bow thruster and pump out toilet.

Her proud second owner, now based in mainland Europe hence deciding to sell, has maintained her systems meticulously including annual engine servicing and, having cruised her extensively, she still has fewer than 950 engine hours recorded. Her particularly smooth Nanni diesel starts on the button and, as part of her maintenance regime, was fitted with new engine mounts in 2023.

Those familiar with Sea Otter boats will appreciate the quality of fit out, more akin to coastal sea going vessels than narrowboats. Her open plan saloon and fully fitted and equipped galley are in typical Sea Otter format, thereby providing great storage, space utilisation and a lovely light space thanks to her large windows which give wonderful waterways view. Her built-in sofa converts easily into a second double berth.

Her bathroom features the convenience of a pump out toilet and walk in shower and the bedroom has an extending double berth. Headroom is excellent throughout (6’ 7”).

Available to view at Packet Boat marina, near Uxbridge, and a permanent mooring at this location may be possible.

With Sea Otter’s increasingly recognised as modern classics, viewing is strongly recommended and serious enquiries only please to our London broker.
