General Comments About the Boat
This 60’ semi-trad boat has a standard layout with rear bedroom, then separate shower room, galley, L shaped dining area, and front lounge. The boat was built by Colecraft on a 10/6/4 hull with a fit-out by Cut Above Narrowboats
There is an aft deck with hinged lifting hatch for access to the weed hatch. The cockpit has port and starboard storage lockers and a lifting floor for access to the engine compartment. This also contains a Webasto diesel boiler for the central heating, three domestic service batteries and one engine start battery.
Entering through the aft hatch, which is offset to the starboard side, and descending via three steps you come to the main double bedroom area, with the bed on the port side and the corridor through the boat on the starboard side. Next to the hatch is the switch panel and adjacent to it at the aft end of the bed is a cupboard which contains the electrical equipment and has full length hanging space that can be used for additional storage. There is a radiator in the corridor. Under the bed are the hot water tank and the polypropylene pump-out tank for the toilet. At the forward end of the bed is a full length hanging cupboard and a separate full height cupboard with five spacious shelves.
There is a sliding door separating this area from the remainder of the boat.
WC / Shower Room

There is an electric macerator toilet and a surface mounted wash basin with mixer tap and cupboard underneath. There is a towel rail heated from the central heating.
Forward of the shower room is the galley area with the corridor running along the centre line of the boat with work tops and cupboards on both sides.
