Rear Deck:

The cruiser deck provides a spacious area for 2 people, with seats where you can sit and enjoy the view while cruising. 


Entering through the rear door, you step down into the luxurious walk-through bathroom which benefits from a full height shower, an electric flush cassette toilet and a table top sink, plus a couple of handy storage cupboards. 


Walking through the door, you enter the galley kitchen which comes with a gas combi oven and grill with 3 hobs, as well as a good sized retro fridge and plenty of storage. The boat comes equipped with all crockery, cutlery and cooking equipment. 

At the front of the boat is a bright and cosy lounge area, with a comfy reclining sofa, footstool and a traditional log fire. As well as a LCD TV and DVD player, there is also a selection of books, games and DVDs provided. The sofa and footstool converts into a queen sized double bed at night, and storage is available in both the sofa, the footstool and the double cupboard at the front of the boat. All bedding is provided, but guests are asked to bring their own towels.

Front Deck:

The small front deck has 2 lockers for storage of gas, coal, logs and other utility supplies.


The boat provides 12v power while cruising, so any personal appliances your wish to bring should have a USB charger cable. There are 2 charging points located in the kitchen.
