Canal Boat - - Liveaboard -

NOT­TING­HAM BOAT CO has been bring­ing Jupiter barges to Crick for a few years now, but each year the prod­uct has de­vel­oped fur­ther. That’s in no small part due to in­vest­ment by the com­pany in its pro­duc­tion fa­cil­i­ties at Red­hill Ma­rina, which in­clude a new paint shop.

This is a re­ally big boat, and it’s po­si­tion on land at the show makes you re­alise just how big it is. The bow looks ex­cep­tion­ally im­pos­ing and the large square stern is equally as im­pres­sive. In­side, there’s very sig­nif­i­cant liv­ing space. There’s a small room at the stern, be­fore you even get to the gal­ley which has Neff ap­pli­ances and ce­ramic work sur­faces. The sa­loon is huge, and has a solid fuel stove and elec­tri­cally open­ing roof hatches. There are two bed­rooms. The smaller one has a bed and a desk, while the larger one, at the bow has an ot­toman bed that lifts up to pro­vide walk-in stor­age. There are also mas­sive wardrobes. Be­tween the bed­rooms there’s a shower room, which has a vast shower and a Ve­tus loo.

The en­gine is a Ve­tus VH4.80, and there’s a pow­er­ful Ve­tus bow thruster. There’s an an­chor wind­lass, too. There are five 220Ah batteries and two 3kW in­vert­ers.

The Jupiter does come in smaller sizes, and with less kit on board, so prices start at around £140,000 excl VAT.
