Canal Boat - - Liveaboard -

YORK­SHIRE BASED MegAS­tar Boats were show­ing a value 57ft re­verse lay­out semi-cruiser, which has lock­ers ei­ther side of the stern deck. It’s based on a Pol­ish-built shell by Vik­ing Canal Boats, which is pos­si­bly the weak­est part of the whole pack­age.

In­side the fit-out uses oak, with nice solid oak floors. All the win­dows are dou­ble glazed. The rear gal­ley has quartz counter tops; an L-shape dinette comes next, which con­verts into a guest bed. The sa­loon is in the mid­dle of the boat and has a solid fuel stove. The shower room is an off-cor­ri­dor de­sign, which makes it a bit smaller than a walk-through, but means there’s al­ways a route through the boat. It has a square shower cu­bi­cle and a Thet­ford cas­sette loo. The cabin is at the bow.

The tech­ni­cal spec­i­fi­ca­tion uses big name prod­ucts. The en­gine is a Beta 43, and there’s a Lew­mar bow thruster. There are four 110Ah do­mes­tic batteries, a Vic­tron 3kW in­verter, and so­lar pan­els to help with charg­ing.
