  • Very spacious with open plan area for living and cooking
  • English Rose kitchens
  • Super convenient utility room or spare bedroom

Stern Deck
The larger cruiser stern area is designed for socialising in safety and features an enclosed stern with fitted seat/storage lockers. Tiller steering supplies smooth comfortable controllable steering, or wheel steering is available as an optional extra. The engine and bow thruster (if fitted) are controlled from a single control pillar. Engine compartment access is via a large lightweight deck hatch.

Bow Locker
The bow locker provides a convenient, all-purpose storage area.

Gas Locker
The gas locker, situated on the stern deck, can hold up to 13kg bottles. For additional safety, an Aldi bubble gas leak detector is included, enabling self-checking of the gas system.

Full Cruising Kit
The kit contains all cruising essentials, including 2 bank pins, lump hammer, 2 mooring chains, water conservation key, windlass, 6 side fenders, 3 ten metre ropes, front V fender and rear extended button fender.

Standard Layout
Reverse layout comes as standard, other layouts are available if required.
At the stern is a handy utility room. This is followed by an open plan galley and saloon, adjacent to a spacious bathroom and finally a fully fitted bedroom at the bow.

Insulation
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.

Flooring
There is a choice of premium quality, luxury flooring by Karndean, which can flow into the saloon & bathroom. Or, if preferred, another style can be chosen. Luxury carpet can also be fitted as standard. Please ask for details and prices.

Interior Finishes
All soft furnishings are included, with luxury king-sized mattress and blinds (or curtains at extra cost) in a choice of colours.

Utility Room
The utility room at the stern provides very versatile extra space, whether simply used for storage or with a washer/dryer or spare bed installed as an optional extra.

Galley
The spacious, open-plan galley is equipped to the highest standards. Solid wood worktops, including a breakfast bar, are finished with a tile splash-back against the clear satin varnished panelling. The galley is easily personalised thanks to a wide range of extremely high quality English Rose kitchens to choose from, along with alternative kitchen styles, integrated galley equipment and a wide range of worktops, sinks and matching mixer taps. Karndean luxury flooring is fitted as standard with other high quality flooring alternatives available.

Standard equipment for the galley includes a 4 burner gas hob inset into the worktop, an eye-level gas oven, grill and microwave unit built into the aft bulkhead. Integrated fridge with freezer box, washing machine and sink are also included as standard, along with LED down-lights and chrome finished 240v sockets. Additional integrated galley equipment is available as an optional extra which can be priced at the planning stage and fitted in to your boat. Please ask for details.

Saloon
The saloon is a very generously proportioned and well-appointed open plan area. Karndean flooring or carpets continue from the galley, whilst the walls are of attractive oak with jasmine white panelling and oak trim. Diesel central heating supplies clean heat through fin-rads hidden in hardwood boxing.

A Morso Squirrel solid fuel fire is fitted as standard to provide 5.5kw of heat to the whole cabin. It sits on a tiled fireplace in the saloon, adding a heart-warming focal point. A large fitted corner unit provides added storage space and also acts as a mounting for the TV. (Wi-Fi is available as an extra).
Exterior opening side hatches, both port and starboard, increase ventilation and add natural light to the saloon and galley area. LED down-lights and chrome finished 240v sockets complete a well thought-out saloon area, designed for free standing furniture.

Bathroom
The bathroom is luxurious and spacious, lined with oak panelling and waterproof bush board. The floor is 100% waterproof, lined with very high quality Karndean flooring. A full vanity unit with inset porcelain hand basin and polished chrome mixer tap is fitted as standard. The spacious 1200mm x 800mm off-set quadrant shower enclosure is equipped with a thermostatically controlled mixer unit, including 1 large fixed shower head and 1 remote handheld shower head.

Please ask for details.

Bedroom
The fully carpeted bedroom is extensive and sumptuous, and includes 2 large fitted wardrobes, each with a separate full-sized hanging space and shelf section. The wardrobe doors are finished with full length mirrors. A fitted king-size bed comes complete with high quality mattress, wall mounted LED bedside lights and tables on both sides. For heating, Fin-rads are fitted in hardwood boxing instead of usual radiators. Last, but not least, LED down-lights and wall lights,  plus chrome finished 240v sockets with USB ports add atmosphere and convenience to this very relaxing space.
