Judging from the superb job they have done on the show boat we are confident the relaunched Jersey range will thrive here.
The key difference, other than the significant hike in fit and finish, is a fully custom-built interior with solid oak joinery, teak decks and all the trimmings. The one on show was fitted out as a day boat with L-shaped seating on both sides and a clever folding helm bench. It also had an unusual custom drive system with twin Volvo D3s on shafts and an additional electric saildrive on the centreline so the owner could potter around the waterways of Norfolk in silent mode.
Bi-fold doors and an electric drop-down window open the saloon up to the cockpit, while a vee berth forward and a double under the cockpit allow comfortable weekending for four. There’s also a 30ft version if you can get away without a dedicated second cabin.
