SOLD . . . SIMILAR BOATS REQUIRED . . . Foxglove is a 70.8ft Trad built & fitted out by the renowned Roger Fuller to an exceptional standard. This is without doubt one of the finest examples of a traditional narrowboat on the canal system today. From the outset you can see the quality of build with the Josher bow and portholes. Furthermore, there is the LMS crest on the side of Foxglove with subtle reminders of this inside the vessel, enhancing the traditional feel. The galley is situated at the bow set in a Victorian tiled surround with granite worktops. There is a Belling oven and grill, a separate Neff 5 ring hob, Bosch fridge and Bosch freezer, Miele washer/dryer, and a dishwasher. The spacious saloon has a Morso Squirrel solid fuel stove with cherry wood cabinets providing ample storage, and the benefit of 2 x side hatches. The walkthrough bathroom contains a cassette toilet, a thermostatic power shower over corner bath and a vanity basin set in Corian. Next there is a cross bed with surrounding storage and overhead Tiffany lamps which complete the cabin perfectly. The engine room is home to the much sought after and admired 1953 Gardner 2LW with twin side hatches. The vessel also benefits from a hydraulic gearbox. The beautifully decorated boatman's cabin contains the second double bed, and has another solid fuel stove. As you would expect from a vessel of this quality, the extensive electrics include: 240v landline, a Pure Sine Wave Trace/Xantrex/ Charger model 2612E (140amp fully automatic battery charger with a continuous output of 2600w) inverter, a Fischer Panda AGT 4000 4kw 12v Battery Charging (powered by a Kubota diesel engine) generator, a portable satellite, LED lighting, a battery management system and 5 x 200amp/hr batteries. Hot water & central heating is supplied by a Kabola oil fired central heating boiler. BSC February 2022. Blacked & repainted September 2016. Surveyed October 2012. Front extended cratch cover. 4 side hatches. Brass feature lights. Foxglove is a stunning and rare boat to the market. A real credit to the current owners.

BUYERS & SELLERS
When you buy a boat from us you pay all monies in to our Company clients trust account which means that the buyers and sellers money is protected. This is the same account that solicitors set up for house sales .This money does not belong to the company it belongs to the buyer until the sale is complete and then we pay the seller from the company clients trust account. We cannot release the money from the Clients Trust Account to the seller until the vessel has been accepted and handed over to the buyer because if there was a fault with the vessel and the buyer refused to accept it and wanted their money back we could not do this because the seller would of already had the money. This could become a very costly and messy problem for all parties.
This money never enters our company current account .This also means that we cannot use customers money for other purchases/reasons. If at any point the company went bust then the buyers/sellers money is safe and it would go back to the rightful owner of the money.
We have had this company clients trust account set up from day one to protect our customers money. This account is a secure holding account. We pay the seller monies due from this account when the buyer has signed to accept the vessel. Payment is made from this account to the seller by cheque from the clients Trust Account which is protected guaranteed funds.
We are members of the British Marine Federation and we follow a strict code of practice regarding the above. We hope this explains what a Client Trust Account is and you can be sure that you are buying/selling via an ethical company that has morals, ethics and standards and think of our customers first...
