Accommodation and layout


Beautiful, high quality teak joinery throughout. The highly polished teak floor grabs the attention as you descend into the saloon from the aft deck. Stunning orange leather seating wraps around the raised dining table, with a swing out stool. Great views forward and to port and starboard. 

The galley, with a smart black Corian top, is to starboard housing a domestic sized AEG oven and hob, fridge and freezer.

There is a door on the starboard side providing access to the side deck.

Guest cabin

The guest cabin is forward with a walk-around island double bed featuring a quality sprung mattress. Wardrobes, drawers and lockers. " Jack and Jill " access to the heads with separate shower compartment.

Master cabin

The master cabin aft also has a large island double bed with sprung mattress, a dressing table with stool and TV. To port is the ensuite heads compartment with separate shower. There is also a full length wardrobe with shoe rack to supplement the other drawers and cabinets.

Raised aft deck

The teak laid rear aft deck features helm and nav seats to starboard and a single seat to port with a fridge below. Aft is a bench seat and folding table. There are twin gates with steps down to the bathing platform. The aft deck has a full canvas enclosure ( 2020 ). The radar mast is electrically lowerable to reduce the air-draft to below the 3.5m limit on the French canals.





It is difficult to do justice to this boat in words. The photographs merit studying and the boat needs to be viewied to fully appreciate the depth of quality of her build. Her mechanical and electrical systems are very impressive indeed. Her joinery, fittings and fixtures are high quality throughout, providing luxury accommodation for her owners and lucky guests, complete with a washer/dryer, air-conditioning, Wifi, TVs, music etc.
