2012 50ft Calcutt Boats Clipper Class in reverse layout with cruiser stern. Powered by Isuzu 36 engine with PRM 150 gearbox. Boat Safety Certificate until 2023.
A perfect liveaboard for 1 or 2 people, ‘Little Green’ has been carefully looked after by one careful owner from new. The hull is structurally sound in 10/6/4 steel, built to last by Andicraft (Andy Thompson, in Market Harborough) in 2012. It houses the highly respected and dependable Isuzu engine and PRM gearbox combo. Professionally designed by the highly-experienced Pat Buckle and hand-built by Calcutt Boats, all fit-out and future decorating has been carried out with careful attention-to-detail. The bright and modern internal design allows just a hint of the boat’s traditional wood to come through to create a minimal yet characterful finish. Lovingly maintained and spotless, Little Green would suit any buyer new to living aboard or a current boater looking for a less stressful experience!
From the aft deck, the main door (complete with sliding hatch) opens down into the open-plan galley/saloon. Decorated in pristine white with new curtains and flooring, the area is light and airy and laid-out well to maximise space. The galley features the reliable Shoreline 12V fridge/freezer, stainless steel sink and drainer, Spinflo gas four-hob, oven and grill, and plenty of cupboards. The 2-person dinette reveals two large areas of built-in storage and also transforms into a single bed when required. The internal fusebox and gas shut-off valves are all easily accessible from the galley.
The galley continues into the saloon, featuring a built-in stereo system, vintage wood chest, sofa with built-in storage, cupboard and bookshelves. The multi-fuel stove (with tile-surround) has been well-maintained and, situated in the centre of the boat, radiates heat in both directions. The three-door side hatch fully opens to bring the outside in. The saloon leads into a corridor accessing the bathroom and cabin.
The quaint, enclosed bathroom is decorated in traditional wood and features a composting toilet (with urine separator), sink/basin, mirror, cupboard and large sit-bath/shower (unbelievably useful if you have a baby or pet!). The bathroom has been cleverly built with maintenance in mind, the shower panel and shower pump both easily accessible without the need to remove panels. (The built-in wall hatch and existing plumbing/electrics would allow for easy installation of a cassette toilet if preferred.)
The cabin is again in immaculate condition in all-white with wood trim. It features a 4ft bed with foam mattress, anti-mould mat and built-in storage (2 x large drawers plus 2 x rear access panels). The cabin also features a full-length wardrobe, full-length mirror and shelving. The bow (front) doors open out to the cute bow which is just big enough for two chairs and a coffee pot(!), while unlatching the step reveals a cavernous storage area under the bow as well as allowing access to the water pump and tank pipework.
175W solar panel + 40A charge controller + 2 x 160Ah AGM batteries (in perfect condition, expensive and highly rated) = more than enough power to keep the fridge, lights and radio on all year round
Cruiser stern (plenty of space here for three or four people without getting in the way of the helm, with the raised gas locker against the aft bulkhead providing additional seating)
Professional, external paint-job in Mason enamel
Hopper-style windows (all show no signs of leaking or water damage)
Energy-efficient LED lighting throughout
3 x fire extinguishers (never used) and fire blanket
Large water tank (500L) last de-rusted and blacked in 2016 (very convenient for London cruising)
All navigation equipment included
Original owner's manual & documentation for all appliances
Here's what Waterways World had to say:
"Calcutt Boats... have been running a hire fleet and building boats since the early 1970s, and have developed a reputation for producing craft that are pragmatic,
reliable and affordable, with good engineering back-up."
"The Clipper is a sound cruising boat, which should keep its good looks by virtue of how it has been put together. Given the prices these boats sell for in the used market, they also hold their value well, depreciating much less than many others."
Overall, Little Green is a stunning, one-of-a-kind find, combining a beautiful, contemporary interior, structurally sound hull and modern, reliable engine. She is finished and ready to liveaboard and can come furnished at the buyer's request. Very rare to find a boat this age/condition on the second-hand market. A must-see.
Available for viewings throughout August 2019 with a flexible sale date possible.
