FOR SALE is ITHAKA, my collingwood widebeam measuring 60ftx12ft6’ perfectly set up for CC’ing as you’ll discover with its solar setup and composting toilet or just a little more convenient on a permanent mooring which is where she is now based in Uxbridge UB9 on a pied-a-terre contract with a yearly mooring fee of £8178.28(equates to £682p/m) water rates are included,electric is on a meter and the added bonus of pied-a-terre means no council tax!
Ithaka is permitted to stay on the mooring where she is now but obviously you’d need to meet the management. Secured with gated entry and plenty of parking.
There’s a wonderful community feeling with BBQ’s in the summer months on the green.
As you enter from the stern you’re greeted to a spacious warm and inviting comfortable open plan living area bigger than most 1 bedroom flats. Opting for a one generously-sized double bedroom and bathroom to match the main living area as an open, inviting multi-use space - complete with a dining area, living room, and home office with plenty of storage space for the budding cooks.
The 'Compoost' compost toilet adds convenience, completely odour-free (seriously). The bathroom has a spacious bath with a refreshing rain shower and water-efficient second showerhead, a walnut sink unit from Tikamoon, and a top-loading washing machine.
In the kitchen, the 12v shoreline fridge includes a freezer box,with the added table top freezer while plugged into shoreline. For cooking you'll find a gas oven & 4-ring hob for with extractor above.
There's a Morso Squirrel multi-fuel stove in the centre of the boat for cozy warmth in the winter, as well as central-heating throughout to take the chill off mid-season, and for those nice warm wake-ups mid-winter.
She has been utilised as a continuous cruisers for 3 years which is evident in the way she’s been fitted out,Ithaka is completely built for comfortable off-grid living if that’s how you choose to use her.
Ithaka was out of the water for blacking in September 2023 the hull was given an epoxy coating, meaning she will be good for at least another 3-4 years before needing to be blacked again. 4 additional anodes were added and she also had a hull survey carried out and was found to be in 'good as new' condition.

Having boating for many years previously on narrowboats and finally upgrading to something special in my opinion Ithaka is regrettably being sold. I’ve had bad news regarding my health which will eventually leave me unable to live on her.
A quick sale is preferred to any genuine serious buyer and sensible offers will be considered. A lot of money has been spent on furnishings which are all brand new,I’m happy to discuss leaving them with Ithaka either all or part.
