We carry a selection of games and books on board for your entertainment. There is also a wood burning stove for the chillier evenings to boost the on board central heating.

There is a comfortable double cabin in the middle of the boat and internal doors shut it off from the kitchen and sitting room giving an element of privacy. There is plenty of storage cupboards above the bed and there is a hanging wardrobe and other cupboards in the sitting room. Next to the cabin is a bathroom which has a cassette toilet and small bath with shower attachment over.

The boat is equipped with fire extinguishers, fire blanket fire alarm and carbon monoxide and gas detector and we provide life jackets and children's jackets. There is a full set of mooring equipment including windlass, mooring pins, hammer, gang plank, boat hook and pole.
