from 57ft x 6ft 10″
The Shearwater, from Collingwood Boats, features the classic reverse layout with the galley at the stern. This makes it an appealing and friendlier layout whilst cruising as the helmsman is never cut off and is in prime position for those all important tea or coffee top ups.
It’s also a practical layout as entrance from the stern means you’re straight onto laminate flooring instead of the carpet of the bedroom or saloon which is ideal on wet days or with dirty boats.
It features an impressive specification, fitted as standard, which you would never associate with a boat at this price. Plus there are a wide range of optional extras so you can personalise to your taste and to ensure the boat fits you needs exactly.
The Shearwater Narrowboat
A relaxing and practical bedroom with fi xed double bed, overhead cupboard with down lights and large wardrobe. Drawers under the bed provide further storage and there are glazed double doors that lead out on to the front deck.
A light and modern walkthrough bathroom that utilises the full width of the boat resulting in a more spacious feel. It boasts a vanity unit with hand basin resting on a worktop to match the galley, Thetford ceramic electric flush cassette toilet, (pump out option available), corner shower unit and ample storage.
Maximising on space the saloon feaatures a TV unit with flat panel television, a radio/CD player, storage cupboards and a solid fuel stove on a tiled hearth. There plenty of room remining to accommodate an optional ‘L’ shaped or Pullman style dinette, both of which convert to an additional double bed.
The galley offers contemporary styling combined with mod cons and ample storage alike. There’s a choice of granite or hardwood worksurfaces with a full sized 4-burner hob with oven, grill and eye level microwave. There is also a household size round stainless sink with monobloc tap plus 12v fridge with freezer box all fi tted as standard.

Heating & Hot Water System
In addition to the solid fuel stove in the saloon there is a Webasto diesel fired central heating
system running three radiators and a heated towel rail as well as a 13 gallon calorifier for hot
water. The twin coil calorifier is also connected to the engine circuit providing heat for hot
water when running. Additionally an optional 1kw immersion heater can be fitted to give hot
water via shore power
The 240V system on board simply plugs in to the shore line providing power to the brushed
stainless steel double sockets throughout the boat. When cruising, a Sterling 2500/70 pure
sine wave inverter/charger ensures you are never without power.
3 x 110A domestic batteries, which are charged by a dedicated alternator, provide 12v power
through the high quality, dedicated distribution panel which carries individual breakers for all
the appliances, as well as voltage and amperage readouts.
There are also dedicated batteries for engine starting and bow thruster (if fitted).

A great deal of thought and planning has been put into the after-sales service. We have our own team dedicated to purely aftersales. We can’t promise every little thing is going to be perfect when you take delivery of the boat – nobody can – but we can promise to put it right as fast as possible.
