Narrowboat Théo (pronounced TEYow) has taken thousands of people on trips over the year, and is now starting to show signs of wear, and he’s next to be refurbished. He sleeps 13 people including the skipper.
The boat has central heating, shower, two flush toilets and a fully equipped galley with everything you’d need for a stay away from home, including pots, pans, cooking utensils and cutlery.
The galley also has a full sized gas cooker with oven and fridge, as well as a full-sized sink.
As you enter the boat from the back counter, you walk into the steerer’s cabin. This has a bunk with storage under. There’s also a small gas hob and sink with hot and cold running water.
Next, there is one of two on-board toilets with drying cupboard opposite, and then you move into the six-berth cabin. This has ample room for storage under the lower bunks,
Next to the six-berth cabin is a four-berth cabin. Again, this has storage under the lower bunks.
Adjacent to that is a shower on one side, and the second toilet on the other. This then leads into the fully-fitted kitchen, which has a gas cooker and over, full-sized sink with hot and cold running water, and a fridge. There is plenty of worktop room.
Finally, Théo’s saloon area is at the front of the boat, and has seating along one side, with stools the other – this allows access past the tables when erected, which makes a far more convenient layout when traveling with groups of young people.
At the far end of the saloon are double-doors out to the front of he boat.
