At 58 feet length, TQ (as we call her) is a steel hull narrow boat built by Colecraft and fitted out by Elton Moss Boatbuilders. Currently based at Aqueduct Marina in Cheshire we're able to cruise some of the most popular waterways in Britain. The Shropshire Union, The Trent and Mersey, The Llangollen Canal, The Four Counties Ring and Cheshire Ring and more.

Our friendly Syndicate decided to go down the Self Management route on 1st March 2012 and so far it has been very successful. Please visit the other pages in this blog to see the new Web Site and if shares are available for sale. (There'll not be many).

I am having to place a watermark on the blog content as someone on Facebook is stealing photos and claiming them as their own. I wouldn't mind if they asked first and attributed it to my blog. If it continues I will name and shame them. I hope it doesn't spoil your enjoyment.

This is Tranquility...

Tranquility is a 58' semi-trad steel hull narrowboat built by Colecraft, fitted out by Elton Moss Boatbuilders. She is powered by a Beta Marine Greenline 43 four cylinder diesel engine, and has a contemporary style interior.

Starting at the bow we have the Tipcat followed by the gas locker with enough room for two 13Kg bottles. Under the front well floor is the bow thruster and the stainless steel fresh water tank. Two locker/seats are on both port and starboard sides of the front well.

Through the steel glazed front doors, we enter the Saloon. On the portside is the Bubble multi fuel stove, with the TV/DVD/Radio on the starboard. Moving further aft there is a built in settee/double bed and then an 'L' shaped dinette/double bed.

Next is the Galley consisting of a Spinflo four burner gas hob and fridge/(small)freezer under. Moving round there is worktop space and stainless sink and separate drainer with cutlery drawer and loads of cupboard space under. Further around is a microwave oven, eye level gas grill and oven with washing machine/tumble dryer under. On the starboard side there is a drop-down table under the trading hatch.

Bathroom has a full size shower with mixer tap, a good sized wash basin and a macerator loo with a large storage tank.

Next a full width double bed over the storage tank. On to the aft end where steps lead to the control panel, isolators and switchgear, then the rear steel doors and roof hatch.

Outside the area is flanked by lockers both sides with engine and controls on the port side. Two steel doors close off the area at night. The counter has the fuel filler, fuel tank vent, two bollards, rudder bearing and tiller arm and finally, the button.
