Broker's Comments

*Available End of October 2011*

There are hire boats and then there is this hire boat......What a stunning example she is, looked after meticulously by her current owners this boat is in superb condition. Offering 8 berths in 4 cabins, 2 heads showers and a small bath (which has it's own calorifier separate to the rest of the hot water system).

She offers space and privacy in abundance. The power comes from a supremely smooth and quiet Nanni Diesel Engine, with 5 batteries, twin alternators and an 1800w inverter there is no shortage of electrical power. The upholstery is as new, the mattresses on the beds are new, along with a new fridge and cooker.

There is heating provided by an Eberspacher 5kw blown warm air heating system. The interior new upholstery along with quality flooring and carpets.

There is ample wardrobes and storage space as you would expect for an 8 berth hire cruiser.

As an all year round retreat or a live aboard this boat would be perfect not to mention being an extremely spacious private cruiser with the capacity to invite guests aboard and still have complete privacy.

I loved this boat, I cannot relay how good she is, I have never thought myself as being able to live on a boat.....until now !!

Please note; due to the hire schedule we can only arrange viewings Sat Am between 9am and 12 noon most weeks.
