Kyle is a truly exceptional 57ft Tug Trad from the thoroughbred stables of Malcolm Pearson who only built around thirty of these stunning narrow boats. She was originally built at 45ft then lengthened by Malcolm Pearson in 1994 when the solid wood fit out was completed by the renowned Graham Booth, former Editor of Waterways World. For many years the previous proud owner of Kyle is the former owner of Russell Newbury and the RN DM2 vintage engine on board was rebuilt by the owner in 2012. Hot water is supplied by a Calorifier/ Alde. Central heating is supplied by Alde. The electrics include: 240v landline, an 1800W inverter, 80W solar panels, a Waeco harging system, a battery management system and 2V 2 cell 480amp/hr batteries. The authentically scumbled boatman’s cabin at the stern benefits from a boatman’s Epping solid fuel stove and drop down double make up bed. The engine room follows which houses the beautiful Russell Newbury DM2 engine and benefits from 2 side hatches. The bathroom contains an electric flush cassette toilet, shower and a vanity basin. The galley is equipped with a New World cooker, Shoreline 12V fridge, a microwave unit and Zanussi washing machine. The saloon has the benefit of two side hatches, a Morso Squirrel solid fuel stove and seating at the bow which converts to a double bed at night by sliding the bed out (which is within the bow) and dropping the backrest down making the vessel 4 berth in total. BSC 2021. Blacked and new anodes fitted March 2013. No expense has been spared on the quality craftsmanship and design of this vessel. If you are looking for a narrow boat with the ultimate pedigree, then look no further. It will be years before the opportunity to own a vessel like Kyle comes along again.
