The large sociable cockpit has plenty of space for family and friends with bench seating along the transom, and pilot and co-pilot chairs. The cockpit cover is windowed to give the captain excellent panoramic views and can easily be lowered for open-air cruising.

Steps lead down to the saloon with comfortable cushioned seating facing the galley, this comprises a spirit stove, an inset sink with a cold water supply, cupboards and worktop space. Alongside the galley, there is a separate toilet and shower compartment with a porta potti and a sink with a shower that detaches.

“James knew his game! Having observed many similar boats remain unsold elsewhere I was a little dubious about ours being sold, i fully relied upon James who informed me throughout the process, estimated the value and she sold very soon after. He held firm on our agreed price, following the sale, Lynne took over and everything was a smooth transition. Top quality! Without doubt i would recommend Waterside. ”
