The 55 foot long, 12 foot wide blue houseboat that weighs 30 tons was once used to maintain the Leeds Liverpool canals.

It is described by the estate agent as "a true low maintenance boat in fair condition”, with the hull "in good condition and blackened". The wheelhouse, in soft wood frame and laminated glass, is collapsible to enable passage through low bridges.

Built in 1986 By E.C. Jones And Sons, Middlesex, Oddy has an open plan kitchen with units that have hand-made walnut worktops, and a main living room area. A multi-fuel stove fire helps to keep the boat cosy through the colder months of the year.

There's one bedroom with bedside lights and shelves, a wardrobe and dressing table, and an oak clad cast iron bath with an electric waste pump. Double doors open from here to the front of the boat.
