Midnight Diamond is a delightful narrowboat which has been sensitively and comprehensively updated by her current owners ensuring that her charm and character have been retained whilst her systems and fit out for full time life on board have been brought up to contemporary standards.

From the stern, through her recently renewed cockpit canopy, one enters her traditionally laid out accommodation through the double bedroom which offers super storage under the lifting bed and in a separate wardrobe.

Her bathroom is a very good size for a narrowboat of this length and benefits from a pump out toilet with holding tank, basin and walk in shower. Moving further forward one enters the open plan galley and saloon. Her extremely attractive galley is fully equipped for full time life on board and features new worktops and more than ample storage.

Midnight Diamond's saloon is truly spacious and wonderfully light with very good headroom. Decorated and finished with great taste, this is an inviting space in which to dine, entertain or work from home . The saloon also features an easily converted sofa/bed plus a very smart and powerful wood burning stove which was reinstalled by her owners to ensure full safety compliance and is beautifully tiled around. The saloon also benefits from doors leading directly onto the bow deck area giving wonderful views of the marina with the protection of a cratch cover.

In addition to the stove, further heating is provided by a gas fuelled radiator system and solar panels ensure the boat is operational the majority of the time without the need for the marina provided shore power system, reducing costs considerably.

As mentioned, Midnight Diamond's current owners, who are reluctantly having to sell due to work relocation (to a non canal area). have carried out numerous updates during their three years living on board including:

  • Professionally installed, reconditioned Barrus Lister diesel engine, previously in a ship's lifeboat (hence correctly maintained to commercial standards and with minimal use).
  • Surveyed three years ago (available to interested parties) with recommendations addressed as well as being freshly re-blacked.
  • Extremely smart and well fitted, laminate flooring.
  • New timber work tops in the galley.
  • Sockets updated to incorporate USB ports.
  • New stern canopy.

Midnight Diamond is offered for sale with a Leisure mooring which may be upgraded to a Residential mooring at Aquavista's beautiful Packet Boat Marina in West London on the Grand Union.

Just a stroll along the tow path from West Drayton station (Zone 6) and then just 24 minutes to central London on the new Elizabeth Line, Packet Boat is is perfectly located for city commuters or those needing the nearby M4, M25 and Heathrow.

Despite it's unrivalled transport links, Packet Boat Marina is a safe, tranquil haven in the countryside, surrounded by nature and with a wonderful community of boat owners. A sociable club house and excellent on shore facilities are also provided.
