In more detail:-
The Semi-Trad stern allows space for at least two people to accompany the steerer (without needing to perch on the gunwales and hold on tight) and there is raised level seating on the port side, this being storage for the gas bottles and engine coolant header tank. For those who need to sit at the helm, there is room for a folding ‘bar’ type stool opposite the control lever.

The engine is below the rear deck, along with a horizontal calorifier situated on the port swim and battery banks on the starboard swim. There are three domestic and one starter battery.

You enter the galley through the hatch/doorway and down the steps.

Immediately on the left is an L-shaped worktop with a Vanette four ring hob and storage shelf above.

Along the worktop there is an inset stainless steel sink unit with cupboards and a Fridge below the drainer. An eye-level oven, built-in grill (matching the hob) and Microwave are located in a full height wall unit with drawer storage below.

Opposite the sink unit is a fold-down worktop, which provides even more workspace when required. The kitchen is well equipped with a full range of saucepans, utensils, cutlery and crockery.

Moving forwards again there are opening side doors and hatch in the port side and there is a transparent panel that can be used when the doors are open. There is a solid fuel Squirrel stove opposite, where it is ideally situated for heating the daytime living space.

The dinette table and seating is next. It can accommodate six utilising two stools and also converts to a ‘make-up’ double bed. There is locker space under the seating and a shelf above with reading lights underneath.

Through a door, the corridor towards the bow is on the port side, passing the bathroom. This has a washbasin, toilet and corner bath with shower over. There is a radiator, airing cupboard, extractor fan and shaver socket.

Continuing along the corridor, there is the main cabin with a full-length wardrobe, a cupboard housing the Alde central heating boiler, under-bed storage, high level cupboards and a radiator. The fixed double bed extends to king size utilising an extra cushion.

Through another door is the saloon with a full-length wardrobe immediately to starboard followed by an ensuite toilet and washbasin. There is a cupboard unit to starboard incorporating electric and aerial sockets with space for the TV, and then a fixed bench sofa/single bed either side of the central walkway. Both make full length berths, in one case utilising a lift-up flap and additional cushion. There is locker space under these benches and they can be combined to create a Super Kingsize double berth.

Beyond the benches are the front double bi-folding glazed doors. The well deck has storage lockers on the bow and each side which double as seats. There is a cratch and cover enclosing the well deck, which has zipped doors for access, with both glazed and vinyl windows to make a light airy space.
