COLLING­WOOD HAD a cou­ple of sail­away wide­beams on show and this fully fit­ted Eurocruiser. This boat fea­tures a wrap­around stern, with built-in and up­hol­stered seats, an ideal en­ter­tain­ing area. The show boat also had a pram cover over this area.

In­side, the boat has an im­pres­sive gal­ley made up of two L-shapes, with ev­ery­thing you need. There’s a break­fast bar be­tween the gal­ley and the sa­loon, which has a Morso stove with cup­boards and shelv­ing ei­ther side. Some of this space could be sac­ri­ficed for a se­cond bed­room, as an op­tion. A cor­ri­dor leads to a shower room with a pump-out loo, a large shower, and a unit with a basin. The cabin is at the bow, and has an ot­toman style bed that lifts for stor­age, plenty of wardrobe space and built in draw­ers. The fit-out uses oak, and the show boat had op­tional off-white cabin sides and ceil­ing, which gave a real sense of space.

The show boat was fit­ted with a Canaline 70 en­gine (slightly more pow­er­ful than the stan­dard Canaline 60). There was also a 95kgf bow-thruster. Elec­tri­cal power came from a 2.5kW in­verter.

Ver­dict: Com­fort and space at a rea­son­able price.
