Step aboard the enchanting Midnight, a 60-foot traditional narrowboat crafted with precision and care by the esteemed Warble Narrowboats in 1993. A testament to the pinnacle of narrowboat design, Midnight bears the distinctive hallmarks of quality synonymous with the legacy of Kevin and Janet Wadsworth, founders of Warble Narrowboats.

As you navigate through Midnight's thoughtfully laid-out interior, you'll find a seamless blend of functionality and comfort. Beginning at the traditional stern, the utility room offers convenient access to Morse controls, the engine room, and an abundance of storage space. A hardwood door leads to the inviting bedroom, featuring a fixed full-size bed, a generously sized double wardrobe, and ample high- and low-level storage, all exquisitely crafted in mahogany.

The bathroom is a sanctuary of luxury, boasting a pump-out toilet, wash basin with a vanity unit, a hip bath complemented by a shower, and plentiful storage—all adorned with hardwood fittings. Rise to the raised Pullman dinette, a versatile space that transforms into a double bed when needed, surrounded by hardwood fittings that exude timeless elegance.

Continue your journey to the galley, where culinary delights await. Equipped with a 4-ring gas hob, separate oven and grill, fridge, microwave, twin drainer sink with a mixer tap, and ample workspaces, this space is a testament to both form and function. Storage cupboards and drawers, all crafted in hardwood, provide a seamless blend of practicality and aesthetic appeal.

The saloon is a cosy retreat, featuring a Kabola "Old English" diesel stove that emanates warmth and charm. Lounge on the 2-seater sofa or the inviting armchair, enjoy entertainment on the TV, and marvel at the ample glazed storage units. Twin glazed doors open to the cratch-covered well deck, a perfect outdoor oasis with a fold-down table, port and starboard seating with storage beneath, and a view that enhances the overall experience.

Midnight's technical specifications are equally impressive. Powered by a Beta Marine 43hp engine with a PRM gearbox, and boasting a hull thickness of 10:6:4, this narrowboat is a robust and reliable vessel. A Pump Out waste system, bow thruster (currently non-operational), and a galvanic isolator add to the boat's functionality and safety.

Learn about Midnight's history as a showstopper at boat shows, earning an IWA best boat in show award. The boat's journey began at Warble Narrowboats, a company founded in the late 1980s that set industry standards for steel hull design and outfitting. While Warble Narrowboats may no longer grace the waterways, their craftsmanship endures in boats like Midnight, leaving an indelible mark on the canal networks of Europe and the USA. Explore the unique character and exceptional quality of Midnight, a narrowboat that beckons you to embark on a journey of timeless elegance and enduring craftsmanship.
