Totally open plan, this boat just needs a little finishing off to make a comfortable and well appointed holiday home or liveaboard
Most of the work has been completed and you enter at the large cruiser stern and into a newly fitted galley with cooker and fridge installed.
A full sized bath, hand wash basin and porta potti toilet make up a functional bathroom which could be completed by adding freestanding bulkheads to complete the decor.
The saloon/sleeping area is totally open plan, with a large sofabed currently being used as a bed. There is plenty of room here for dividing the space into a self contained bedroom with fixed double.
The saloon area is open with wooden floors, new internal window surrounds and fitted blinds. Walls are wood lined, giving a warm, spacious feel.
A refurbished stove is awaiting final fitting.
The cratch area has been extended to be part of the cabin and is a good storage area or even an extra cabin with a little imagination.

Broker's Comments

This boat is at the end of project stage which just needs a little finishing to make a comfortable retreat.

Big enough to live in but manageable enough for family weekends, she is the perfect size for someone looking for a budget priced boat.

The boat feels warm and welcoming inside and although you could just bring a bag and move in, the open plan fitout gives plenty of scope for some internal changes to suit a new owner.

Currently moored in a marina just north of Hemel Hempstead, the mooring could be transferable by agreement with Marina Management.
