COLLINGWOOD BOAT BUILDERS EUROCRUISER 60FT X 12FT £126,035
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.
