The Owl and the Pussycat is an extremely well equipped 70ft semi-trad narrowboat owned by the same family since new. She was completed in 2008 and was last out of the water in 2017 for blacking, when the anodes were replaced. She has recently had new batteries and a new shower-head. She offers comfortable 4 berth accommodation with the opportunity to easily extend this to 6 berth accommodation by adding a sofa bed in the forward saloon. The exterior is looking a little tired now and would benefit from a repaint, which is reflected in the asking price. Moorings are available by separate negotiation.
