Beautiful ‘roses and castles’ artwork. A full size washing machine is opposite the toilet with space for a dryer above. The large engine room provides plenty of space for tools, bike, drying washing above the engine and the pleasure of polishing the brasswork on the engine which has a lovely, off-beat chug chug sound and plenty of power should you take her onto the river. There are side hatches either side of the engine room. All of the electrics are in here as well with state of the art readout displays making managing power usage a pleasure.The bathroom has a full size cast iron roll top bath with shower above, all fittings are brass. You could if you dared, swing a cat in here, not banging your elbows and shins like in so many boats.

The fridge is a 12v Shoreline (they cost in the region of £550).

The large saloon/lounge area has plenty of space for either recliners, a settee/sofabed and chairs. Another TV/DD combo is up forward with a woodburner opposite. All portholes have tailored bungs to keep prying eyes or the sun out (this helps keep the interior cooler when you leave the boat and it’s hot out).

Classic wall lamps aplenty as well as recessed ceiling lights.The forward cockpit has a drop-down table revealing a clear perspex screen with plenty of room for seating which is our fav place for breakfast or dinner.
