  • 69ft cruiser stern narrowbeam boat built in 2006
  • Isuzu 42 hp engine with PRM gearbox and hospital silencer on the exhaust. Regular engine services undertaken annually at the minimum. Keel-cooled.
  • Three domestic/leisure batteries (new in autumn 2016) and two 100W solar panels
  • Bottom-blacked in October 2015 with new anodes
  • Boat Safety Certificate issued in January 2017 with a gas service
  • Morso Squirrel solid fuel stove in saloon and Eberspecher central heating system with radiators throughout
  • Reverse layout with two pump-out toilet and shower rooms and eleven berths; two fixed doubles and four fixed single bunks with a fold out double in the lounge and an additional single bunk that fits above the double in the middle cabin.
  • Good-sized windows with a cheerful, bright feel inside and lots of natural light. The galley is an excellent size and well-fitted – I have cooked a four course meal for 10 people out of this galley.
