Mr Toad is a charming steel wide-beam Tjalk, purchased by the current owners c.2 years ago and now reluctantly for sale as new work commitments are rendering her regular use difficult.
Following purchase, an extensive programme of works was carried out to finish the interior to a high standard, and to upgrade all electrical, gas and associated safety systems and equipment.
She was repainted late last summer and is currently moored at the Twentypence Marina in Cambs. We think she dates from c.1910 and was built in Holland.
Access is by sliding wooden door on either side of the wheelhouse. Removable floor panels give access to the engine bay and fuel tanks. Electric controls (including those for the solar panels) are housed to starboard. A diesel-powered Webasto warm air heater feeds both forward and rear cabins. A hinged, glazed door opens onto the poop deck which has a gas locker to starboard.
Panelled door at the rear leads to stern cabin which has two single bunks (that can be converted into a double bed) and openable porthole to stern.
The main saloon is down steps and there is a WC and shower to port. A new gas water heater was installed and the galley is fully fitted with sink, cooker and fridge. A u-shaped seating area forward converts to a double bed and there is plenty of storage under seats. There is a working log burner in the saloon that has seen regular use.
A locker at the bow contains the freshwater tank and provides additional storage.
A small steel plate to the rear of the Aqua drive requires re-welding to the hull. This has not caused any issues to date, but we have been advised that this work should be undertaken.
There is a small leak from the gearbox – the current owners have ensured this is kept topped up to avoid any issues. The asking price below reflects the above and the owners’ desire for a quick sale.
