Boating NZ - - Review -

Not many boats of this size, es­pe­cially trailer boats, of­fer two good-sized berths, one a dou­ble and the other a maxi sin­gle. The dinette ta­ble drops down to make yet an­other berth.

The Ar­vor’s master berth in the bows is vast with heaps of stor­age un­der­neath, along with ac­cess to the bow thruster and ded­i­cated bat­tery. Port lights and an over­head hatch, with in­sect screen, let in light as well as ven­ti­la­tion. The en­closed head is also roomy – cer­tainly not the cramped af­fair we see in some 7-8m boats with en­closed toi­lets.

The sur­prise for me was the sec­ond berth ex­tend­ing back un­der the wheel­house ta­ble, which is raised on a plinth. This quar­ter-berth cabin doesn’t of­fer much head­room but the berth it­self is of gen­er­ous size for one adult and prob­a­bly big enough for two kids.
