Our 1st project narrowboat Isabella
This page shows the fit-out of the Master Bathroom on our barge Elessina. Elessina was built by Piper Boats at Stoke on Trent to a sailaway plus level, we are completing the fit-out on our mooring at Port Medway on the River Medway in Kent. Elessina is 60 ft long x 12'-6" wide has a 12mm thick 5ft wide flat bottom with 8/10mm thick angled side chines.
The bathroom is approx 5ft x 8ft, located between the master bedroom and saloon.
Main bathroom shower tray in place. The waste outlet fell directly over a steel cross frame, so the whole unit and already installed side panel had to be moved back 2".
Shower tray with sea cock and toilet tank fitting in right side corner. The shower tray and enclosure is from Novellini, it is a 1000 x 800 quadrant enclosure.
