The interior is flexible and open plan. The main space is ringed by discreet cupboards/storage and has a built in desk as well as an integral sofa that converts into bunk beds at the other.
The floor is solid oak and the joinery is oiled oak veneer.
The space is incredibly light from the wall sized laminated plate-glass windows and two very large skylights.
In the centre of the space is a Morso Squirrel Convector multi-fuel stove.
To the back of the space is a separate sleeping area that can either open up into the main living area or be closed off behind shutters to be a separate space. Here, too, a wall sized plate glass window, allowing great views from bed.
Also to the back of the space is the toilet (a pump out Sanimarine S) and wet-room, with an overhead shower in the skylight and a hard-wood shower tray. As with the sleeping area, the toilet/wet-room can either be closed off in a separate area, or, with doors like a Chinese box, can open up to double its size.
Outside of the wetroom is an Electrolux washing machine and double height clothes cupboard.
Perhaps the most notable feature of the interior are the hand-pressed glass blocks, designed by glass artist Matt Duran; these ring the entire interior and let in even more light. From the outside, the glass blocks are completely opaque, virtually unnoticeable (except at night, when, if you have your lights on inside, they will 'glow' in a band of light), but on the inside, they catch the reflection of light from the water, always subtly different, depending on the quality of the light outside. And so even with the metal shutters closed on the windows, the interior still feels light.
Designed to provide an ideal work environment for its current owner, a writer, the boat combines modern clean lines crafted to the highest traditional standards and an extraordinary sense of calm and space, a revolutionary re-imagining of what is possible in a houseboat.
