Let’s take a look at some of our Signature Range
60ft x 10ft Widebeam
An office with occasional leisure use
An interesting project commissioned by family of architects looking to run their business from a canal boat. The brief was to design a large saloon area to house three desks, along with a small bathroom galley and double bedroom. The double bedroom was design with ‘his’ and ‘hers’ doors, a unique feature that worked really well.
72ft x 12ft Widebeam
A Four Bedroom, 2 Bathroom Family Home
Yes, you’ve read the title right, if ever there was a challenge to make a small space work this was certainly up there! This boat was design as a family home which included Mum & Dad, three children and a cat! If this wasn’t challenging enough there was an added requirement for a small toilet at the rear for the children when playing outside.
