• Spring of 94
2017 45ft £64,995
Spring of 94 has an enclosed bow area which gives her the interior space of a larger boat with the added benefit of the manoeuvrability of a smaller boat. She is powered by a Beta Marine 38hp, four-cylinder marine diesel engine with a PRM 150 gearbox.
The U-shaped galley is fitted with solid oak cupboards and worktops. Equipment includes a diesel oven and hob, 12v fridge, washer/dryer and a ceramic butler's sink. The fixed settee in the saloon can be converted into a single berth and has storage in the base.
The bedroom has a fixed double bed with a water tank and storage below. Two portholes with top hopper openings, along with four LED ceiling lights and two LED reading lights, mean the room is always well lit.
The full width shower room has a white suite with a quadrant shower, corner vanity unit, washbowl and Thetford cassette toilet.

2018 59ft £119,950
Absolutely brand new, with only two hours on her engine, the first time this cruiser got her bottom wet was when she was craned into the water at Crick. The reverse layout is ideal for a family as children will love their own bedroom with bunk beds, which is situated in the centre of the boat allowing a private master bedroom in the bow. There is even another two berths available on the well thought out extending L-shape settee. The joinery is all to a high standard with hard wearing easy-clean surfaces on birch plywood (not mdf) including Karndean flooring throughout. The cabin extends all the way to the foredeck, giving more usable room inside but still with a sociable cruiser deck.
