WHILE BURSCOUGH are still build­ing four be­spoke boats a year, they’re also be­hind this range of widebeam boats (sizes can be var­ied), which will be sold through Eve­sham Ma­rina. There’s cer­tainly plenty of room on a boat this size, start­ing with the very gen­er­ously sized stern deck. Burscough build their own steel­work and the high pointed bow cer­tainly makes a state­ment.

In­side the sense of space con­tin­ues, with the rear gal­ley hav­ing a cen­tral is­land unit com­plete with an off­set din­ing ta­ble. The sa­loon has a stove and fire­place, and is big enough to ac­com­mo­date size­able fur­ni­ture.

The off-cor­ri­dor shower room has a large rec­tan­gu­lar show cu­bi­cle and lots of work­top space. The cabin, at the bow, has a bed po­si­tioned across the boat with a unit at the foot. Touch a but­ton and a TV rises elec­tri­cally from it. There’s also lots of wardrobes and a big drawer unit.

The boat is pow­ered by a Bar­rus Shire 70, and there’s a 95 kgf bow-thruster. Ver­dict: Lots of space for a mod­est price.
