The concept of spray foam insulation has revolutionised steel boats, maximising warmth and almost eliminating condensation completely. All our boats are spray foamed with 97% close cell technology for optimum heat retention in the winter and to reduce heat absorption, which keeps the boat cooler in the summer. With the use of modern marine heating systems, your boat is potentially warmer than a modern house.
Lining and Wood Type
There is a choice of light Ash or Oak panelling, finished with 3 coats of clear satin varnish. The butt and bead effect ceiling is finished with off-white satin paintwork to create a feeling of classic elegance and space.
