COLIN AND KRYSIA EVERALL first saw their boat in the water at the Crick Show after it had arrived by lorry direct from the builder. Then, once the show was over, they set off on their maiden voyage. Since then, they’ve not only taken the boat to its home mooring on the Kennet & Avon, they’ve used it almost every weekend too.
Colin is a self employed IT consultant, while Krysia is a freelance hairdresser. But she’s also artistic in other ways and has a sideline in picture framing, which means she knows good quality joinery when she sees it. She almost stumbled into another career, when a visitor to Crick wanted to commission her to do the interior design on their boat.
At the moment this is a holiday boat, but the couple have a five-year plan to wind down work and eventually live on board. So they’ve been careful to future-proof the boat so it will work as a liveaboard.
