Smoking Otter is a 62ft long x 6ft 10in wide narrowboat built by Marque Narrowboats in 1991. She is fitted with a Russell Newbery DM1 diesel engine, in an engine room and has 6 berths.

Smoking Otter is a traditional stern narrowboat benefiting from 6 berths comprising of a fixed double, make-up double and a Boatman's cabin.  The lovely Russell Newbery DM1 engine is in it's own engine room.  Although she is a traditional boat she enjoys some modern features including a light and airy saloon, galley with ample storage, sockets with USB charge points and a large shower. Smoking Otter is a great leisure boat or, with the addition of central heating, would make an ideal live aboard. 

The heart of this boat, the engine, is a real talking point. Russell Newbury DM1's are a traditionalist's dream engine, with the boat's owners being stopped numerous times by people wanting to see the 1 cylinder engine in action. It has been lovingly maintained and is a real feature.
