Built by renowned boat builders A.H. Moody & Son in 1937, Norana' is a beautifully maintained, two/three bedroom houseboat adapted from an original motor yacht and now offering a versatile living space in this area of outstanding natural beauty.
Moored on the southern bank of the Chichester canal adjacent to Chichester Marina for almost 50 years, the boat measures approximately 60' in length with a breadth of 14'9 and 46 gross tonnage. Used as a permanent home, the present owner having lived on board since 2009, the boat would also make a perfect second home.
Norana' has had an interesting history, its log book showing deep water cruising trips from the Red Sea to the Baltic, around the Mediterranean and stays in Malta.
The top deck, constructed of Pitch Pine planking, has retained many of the original features and comprises a pretty wheel house which provides ample space for dining and relaxation with far reaching views across the Marina.
Part of the rear deck has been successfully enclosed to provide a third bedroom with utility facilities that can be used as a self-contained guest suite with direct access to the lower deck if required.
Below deck there is a well thought out interior with ample head height that maximises every inch of accommodation, a 17'7 long sitting room, two further bedrooms, one with an en suite cloakroom, a refurbished kitchen with modern appliances and a full bathroom.
There is gas central heating via a Combi boiler and additional insulation to the hull.
