Chimera has the makings of a great boat, currently set up for liveaboard use in a marina with shorepower available. There is however plenty of scope for improvements to be made.
The cabin is currently heated by a combination of diesel fired central heating via radiators throughout, and mains powered stove effect fire in the saloon, with a glass panel heater in the bedroom, however, fitting a solid fuel stove for additional warmth would not prove too difficult. Cooking is by a free standing two ring induction hob, but for extended boating away from a mains power supply, if you want to keep the GAS FREE cooking element, a diesel fired oven and hob could be installed, or you could decide to embrace an all electric cooking system with a few additional upgrades.
Accommodation on this REVERSE layout boat is provided by a cosy double bed in the forward cabin, but replacing the existing settee with a sofa bed would instantly add two more berths. Externally the paint work is faded and once again this could be easily rectified as and when time allows, and is reflected in the price.
