You have to admire owners who have the vision to do something a bit different in their boat – and a builder who is prepared to go along with them and bring it to reality.
The idea of a boat without any wood showing won’t be to everyone’s taste. But it really works. That’s in no small part to the clarity of the colour scheme Glynis has come up with. Everything matches without being the same colour, and there are numerous different textures to appreciate, from wood grain to glass, granite to stainless steel. And while you could say the design is minimalist, it’s also welcoming and comfortable.
Of course, all this comes at a price and Justin Hudson-Oldroyd from Aqua says the extra work involved means that if you wanted a boat such as this it would cost around £150,000. But that’s not unreasonable. It’s a boat on a good shell and with a high quality fit-out that’s been done with real care and attention.
And if you want to see what the wood-free interior looks like in real life, then the Crick Boat Show will be the place to head for because will be on show there.
