Portumna Co Galway Ireland|
This classic 37-foot express cruiser, berthed in a private marina on the River Shannon near Portumna, Co. Galway, is for sale by her owners of 18 years, who are now looking to downsize.
Built in 1971 with a generous hull lay-up, her twin propellers are shaft-driven by 2 Perkin HT 6.354 turbo diesel engines (originally rated at 145hp each).
Her accommodation consists of 2 2-berth cabins, 2 toilet compartments, a spacious saloon (recarpeted in 2021), and a separate galley. The saloon’s dinette can be converted to a double berth which makes this a 6-berth cabin cruiser. She also boasts a well-proportioned teak-floored aft deck which is fully enclosed in a new (2021) canopy. Her galley is equipped with a gas cooker and an electric/gas fridge. The domestic hot water system is heated by a calorifier while she is under way and can also be heated by immersion heater when connected to shore power.
Her DC electical system supports both 12v and 24v circuits, powered by two 2x12-volt battery arrays (domestic and starter), which can be used in series or in parallel. The latter array was replaced in 2020.
On deck, her fenders, 3 horshoe lifebelts, and mooring ropes were also renewed within the past two years.
Over time, our unique holiday home has given us the privilege of becoming members of Ireland’s wonderful inland boating community and provided us with a lifestyle which saw us cruising the entire 500-km extent of cruising waters of the Shannon and Erne river systems – from Belleek, County Fermanagh, on Lough Erne, to Kilrush, County Clare, in the Shannon estuary.
If you have aspirations to do something similar, this may be the opportunity you have been waiting for.
