Boat Details

Otter Bliss is a pristine example of a 41 foot Sea Otter narrowboat built in 2014, the last year of production. Like all Sea Otters this boat is constructed using Marine grade aluminium alloy, allowing you to spend more time cruising and less time on maintenance like re-blacking, changing anodes or touching up rusty paintwork. Designed in a forward layout this attractive boat has a master cabin with fixed double bed, a bathroom with cassette toilet and good sized shower, a galley with Corian worktops and Pullman style dinette for two, convertible to a single bed with a bunk above. Double bench seating in the saloon allows you both to put your feet up to watch TV and can be converted to a supersize double bed or used with the large folding table to seat four.  Powered by an economical Vetus diesel engine with less than 500 engine hours. Central heating by Webasto diesel fired system. Hot water supplied by the engine calorifier, or the Webasto diesel heater, or with an immersion heater when connected to shore power.  240V and 12V electrics on board. BSS valid to March 2027.  Engine serviced in 2023. Structural survey just completed. A superb 5/6-berth narrowboat ideal for canal or river cruising
