There is outdoor space at the front and rear to socialise, the dining area seats 4 comfortably with a fully equipped kitchen with grill, separate oven and hob with 4 gas rings, a 3 piece bathroom with shower sink and toilet.

“We had a wonderful weekend with the family on this boat. It was very clean and adequately equipped for all our needs, although we only cooked light meals in the kitchen. The staff were really friendly and helpful and gave us the confidence to set off on our own. We would definitely recommend one of these boats for a fun filled adventurous family holiday”.
