General comments by vendor
Blue Steel is an extremely comfortable and capable cruising boat. With the bow thruster and powerful engine she is very easily manouvered. Modern instrumentation with satnav, depth, speed, radio etc.give full information and the high sterndeck helm position is a joy to use cruising the lovely French countryside.
The wide side decks and spacious foredeck allow safe and easy rope handling through locks and mooring up. There is an anchor for emergencies.
The large stern cabin with it's own bathroom is extremely comfortable and the hot water tank is big enough for full crew showers. The forward cabin has the use of the forward small bathroom so that guests are accommodated very comfortably as well.
Most of life is spent lounging, eating and gazing from the large comfortable stern deck seats whilst protected from the sun by the large bimini cover.
