Camali is a 55' traditional stern narrowboat. She's long enough to live on comfortably, the open cabin allows you to add furniture to suit your needs (current furniture not included) yet she is easy to manouvre, even for a novice. She's really well equipped for both cruising and liveaboard. She was originally built for constant cruising, and runs well off 12v, so performs really well when out and about, with all the comforts you need, I have adapted her for liveaboard life moored up for longer periods. The addition of solar panels make cruising flexible and economical.
She was originally built by experienced boaters, so she has well thought out space, good storage, and some nifty additions to make life easier, for example a bigger than average bathroom, and a really useful engine room.
Main equipment includes: Squirrel Morso fire, Webasto central heating, Waeco pure sine wave inverter, Numax battery charger, galvanic isolator, two large solar panels, pump out toilet, 12v fridge and freezer ( both quite new) Bosch washing machine, 3 leisure and 1 starter battery.
She is currently on a farm mooring, with garden, just outside Rugby, with easy links to M1, M6, and A5. The mooring can be transferred with the agreement with the owner.

Camali has a comfy, well thought out interior, the cabin allows for flexible furnishing (I wanted to bring my furniture from home). There is a 4' double in the bedroom, and a sofabed in the cabin. Storage is good, with a larger than average wardrobe, and useful cupboards. I love the big bathroom and shower. The portholes and roof light allow in plenty of light, but are also more secure and allow for more privacy when out on the towpath.
Camali was a self build, so her works do look a bit scruffy, but everything is there that you need, it all works well, and its easy to get at. The engine has a fairly low milage, she cruised, but very slowly, and the solar panels mean that I've not had to run the engine for electricity.
