Cabin(s) 3

Covered aft deck for enjoying the great outdoors but well protected from the sun and other elements! The side canvases are equipped with "crystal" windows making this a really useful three seasons space. Forward through a door to port into the wheelhouse saloon with deep windows on all sides giving a 360° view of the countryside. Headroom of 2.05m adds to the open airy feeling but the warm wood finishings add a cozy touch too. Forward again and down just two steps to the galley area. First to port a larder with plenty of shelves and a second fridge (12v). Opposite to starboard the table from the dinette has been removed and this space is presently used as an office. The bench seat can be converted to a berth of 1.5m x 1.3m ideal for one or two children. Next the galley itself with 4 burner gas hob, a “trimix” fridge (12v, 220v & gas) sink and worktops. Opposite the galley to port is a single berth cabin with bed 1.85 x .65. Further forward to port the heads & shower room with washbasin and manual toilet. To starboard another single cabin presently used for storage but the bed 1.85 x .65 is still in place. There is 2m of headroom throughout these areas. Finally the main cabin with a bed of 1.9 x 1.5 max. reducing to 1m at the foot. Central heating to radiators throughout heated by a diesel fired boiler. Hot water from an electric immersion heater.
