Talisman is an absolute Tardis! From the canal side, she looks extremely well proportioned with her rather "grand", centrally positioned wheelhouse and full canopy.

Her cleverly designed interior has just been redecorated throughout and the rear accommodation provides a good sized, and private, double bedroom with ample storage plus ensuite shower.

Moving forward she has a fully equipped, fitted kitchen, off which is a very useful closet with wash basin and extra storage space. Talisman's saloon is wonderfully spacious for a narrowboat of this size and features a multi fuel stove. 

Her engine runs sweetly and Talisman is ready to move on board immediately so that her new owner can start enjoying marina life and cruise the waterways whenever they wish from this great location. 

Talisman is offered for sale with a 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 half an hour to central London, Packet Boat is is perfectly located for city commuters thanks  or those needing the nearby new Elizabeth Line connection to central London, the M4 and M25 and Heathrow.

Despite it's proximity to London, 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.
