General comments by vendor
Even in winter (snow on the ground!) we felt cozy and warm with the stove going and the canals were beautiful to cruise along. Waking up to a frosty morning with a light mist on the water was magic.
Daydream is comfortable, easy to handle, well fitted out and maintained.
The turnaround process is efficient.
We are now in a position to spend more time cruising than we are allocated on our share so have decided to purchase our own boat.
