If you had 20k to spend on updating it (bearing in mind this would be spent over a number of years and the major work would need to be carried out by tradesmen), would you be interested? Ignore hull condition.
Personally, I'd be looking for something more conventionally suited to living aboard. Nothing will alter the fact that it has too many windows for example.
Must just say that this doesn't look like a new engine installed this year...
Spotted, Sir Snotted !!! gearbox possibly, but unless my eyes deceive me, that looks like a BMC ....... and at best a paint spray re-build
I reckon it probably has got a new engine in it but they have recycled a photo from when they bought the boat which was within the last year I believe. I have been going up the Thames every year for the last 25 years and I'm pretty sure that boat was still at Trowlock Island above Teddington last summer.
I suspect they bought it cheap/not working put a new engine in did some work and are now going for some profit.
It always seemed to be moored up and never used, previously.
Its a really nice boat but £35k does seem a bit OTT to me.
Depends largely on your attachments to clutter that we surround ourselves with..those must have which we don't need. I'm continually ditching stuff in the Cottage....I'd get rid of far more if family didn't expect there to be cooking utensils/plates etc when they visit..even so they are comments cos I don't have gadgets. I guess only you know what you cannot be without..if i could get back to a boat I'd leave most of my stuff behind and would go for a smaller one than I had before..58ft was to big..i did not need that bedroom space. She also had the hopper style windows..condensation and cold..

JohnV: There are other drugs but I haven't found the side effects with Ramipril to be bad, it seems to just make my throat a bit more sensitive so things that might have just tickled my throat and make me want to clear it now make me cough.

loddon: The cough is the only one I get from ramipril, although the combinatins of drugs I am on has interesting effects.
