Having only lived aboard for just over a year i am selling due to the imminent arrival of my first child and a life back on land.

The boat is set up for near self sufficiency whilst constant cruising (as i have done for the last year) and also has features suitable for a marine/shore power set up.

Through summer the current solar set up easily caters for onboard needs with excess and so far in winter only a short engine run is needed every couple of days to keep the batteries in a satisfactory condition.

The brand new central heating has really taken comfort aboard to a new level with radiators programmed to come on 2hrs in the morning and 2hrs in the evening you never need return or wake to a cold home and the water is always warm!

As the pictures show this is a modern and spacious fit out and perfect for a single person or couple (even those over 6ft tall) . Ive loved living aboard and over the last year have worked tirelessly on improvements bringing the boat to the level of comfort that can now be enjoyed by the next owners!
