Beautifully fitted out and very well equipped, two bedroom, 57' Warble built narrow boat. Now Or Never is in very good condition despite being very much overdue for a clean! Her asking price makes her amazing value and a huge history and provenance file demonstrates that no expense has been spared in her maintenance. Following a thorough clean, one could move aboard straight away and enjoy extended cruising or simply living aboard and enjoying her super spacious interior and wonderful quality.

From the stern one passes through the master double cabin which is beautifully finished and has spacious built in storage. Her bathroom benefits from a pump out toilet and small bath with shower and moving further forward, there is a second bedroom currently with a single bed but which could easily be reconfigured as double bunks or a further double bed. Now or Never's kitchen is particularly well equipped with Bosch washing machine, fridge and separate freezer plus four burner hob and excellent built in storage. Her fabulously spacious saloon with wood burning stove and TV is a wonderful space to relax and enjoy life onboard and her double bow doors give access to the foredeck and wonderful marina views.   

Now or Never is offered for sale with a Leisure mooring at Aquavista's beautiful Packet Boat Marina in West London on the Grand Union.
