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.
