Now for the really good news. The interior of this boat is magnificent. Superb woodwork, polished, detailed and immaculate. If you love a dark, real timber fit out, this could be the boat for you,

Entering from the front via double doors there is a vast living room with two sofas, each of which makes up into a single bed. There is also a superb bookcase and a corner, diesel fired, bubble heater.

Between the living area and the kitchen is a short passage with a side-hatch on each side. Both with entrance steps.

The kitchen is straight through with working surfaces each side. There is a gas cooker, fridge and a kitchen sink. Masses of storage.

Leading from the kitchen is a stunning dining room with a dinette which converts to a comfortable double bed.

Next comes the wet-room style bathroom with shower, basin and pump-out toilet.

Last, but certainly not least, is a real boatman's cabin that has the lot. Scumballing, roses and castles, drop down table, boatman's range style stove and a pull-down double cross bed concealed in a cupboard.

A large and magnificent interior- definitely one for the traditionalist.

2 burner gas cooker

Broker's Comments

A good David Piper hull with a magnificent interior in dark wood and a proper boatman's cabin. Six berths in 3 separate cabins. A bubble heater and a boatman's stove,

Detailed polished wood work gleams throughout the boat, The rear boatman's cabin with its painting, roses and castles ad concealed table and double bed is a true delight.

OK she needs work to the exterior, but boats like this do not come along often. Nicely priced and the first to offer the money walks away with a bargain.
