SALOON AND DINETTE

Canal Boat - - The Boat Test -

We’ll start our tour of the boat at the bow where the glazed doors bring you in­side from the well deck. The steps have lift­ing treads for stor­age and on one side there’s a hearth and Vil­lager stove, while on the other side there’s a cor­ner cupboard.

The main fea­ture of the room is a

size­able TV unit tucked un­der the gun­wales, with slim cup­boards ei­ther side and an­other un­der­neath.

The dinette is raised slightly and has a ta­ble on Desmo legs. There are shorter legs for when this area con­verts into a guest bed. The base unit pro­vides masses of stor­age.

Taken to­gether, the saloon and dinette of­fer a big so­cial space, some­thing par­tic­u­larly im­por­tant to Julia who is look­ing for­ward to hav­ing a boat full of chil­dren and grand­chil­dren.

Spot the dif­fer­ence... slim cup­boards, right, pro­vide a wider walk-through
