HYBRID Narrowboat for sale
‘Sunflower’ is a beautifully fitted narrowboat with a hybrid system comprising a Lynch electric motor charged primarily by solar panels and a back up diesel generator. It was a boat well ahead of its time when it was designed and built twelve years ago. It has a Price Fallows Hull and an excellent bespoke fitting-out at Westview Marina, Earith, Cambs. In Autumn 2017 she was on display for the Electric Boat Association at the Crick Boat show to demonstrate the hybrid system, and its quiet running. There, she drew many favourable comments.
Sunflower also has a special external safety feature to make it as safe as possible when children are aboard – a large square enclosed rear deck with flush metal doors to both port and starboard that can be bolted closed when underway.
Also, because of the way in which the motor, generator and battery bank are configured, the boat has a large amount of easily accessible storage space under the rear deck.
Sadly, Trevor is having to sell Sunflower following medical advice.

 Length: 45ft
