She is custom built to offer the maximum comfort and style for 4 people sleeping in two cabins. Both cabins have their own shower/wc, the double is en suite and also has its own deck from which to watch the world go by. Alongside there is a boat house for additional storage or simply chilling out on shore. Blagdon Water provides the visitor with the peace and tranquility nowadays rarely found. Swallow Tail offers the perfect location in which to relax and enjoy the surrounding countryside and wildlife which freely roams around her. Swallow Tail enjoys the last of the setting sun on Blagdon Water which can be enjoyed from the aft deck or boat house.

Further details

Swallow Tail, Painted Lady and Clouded Yellow share the 35 acre site. They are close enough together that a large party can rent all three boats and not be too far away, however individual parties can enjoy their own privacy without being overlooked from either boat.

As the project tries to follow environmental lines, the boat is solar powered which means that all electricity on board is 12v. There is also additional mains electricity in the boat house. There is plenty of lighting and a cd/radio unit with ipod adaptor.
