AQUA NARROWBOATS ALL YOU NEED IS LOVE 60FT SEMI-CRUISER
AQUA IS is constantly evolving. From fitting out a hire boat, expanding the hire fleet, to building bespoke private boats, Aqua has recently added a narrowboat furniture business to make use of the knowledge and contacts built up over the years as boat-fitters. This year’s showboat was typically stylish and good quality. It’s built on a ColeCraft shell and the exterior combines a grey and black colour scheme with purple accents. The large rear deck has plenty of room without being as exposed as a full cruiser. Inside there’s a reverse layout, with the galley at the stern. This has white gloss units and granite work surfaces. Further forward is an L-shaped dinette, and a saloon with a stove, a TV unit and stainless steel radiators. The walk-through shower room has a large quadrant shower lined with laminate in a wood effect. The cabin is at the bow and has a cross bed with wardrobes.
The boat is powered by a Beta 43 engine, has four 110Ah domestic batteries, and a 3kW Victron inverter.
Verdict: Style and quality from an experienced family firm.
