Raindance 48ft semi-trad £115,000
This boat is destined to spend its life off the connected canal network, on the 15-mile long Bridgwater and Taunton Canal in Somerset. The 48 footer is a semi-trad on a shell by ColeCraft. It’s powered by a Beta 38 but has an upgraded PRM 150 gearbox. There are four 110Ah domestic batteries, and a Victron 1.6kw inverter.
Inside, the boat is fitted out using oak below the gunwales and lacquered panels above, to give a contemporary look. The saloon is at the stern, and there’s a breakfast bar at the end of the galley, which has Corian worktops. This is a gas-free boat, so cooking is by a Wallas diesel oven and hob. The galley unit doors are painted white. The walk-through shower room has a Thetford cassette loo, a quadrant shower, and a side unit with a basin. The cabin is at the bow, with a bed which extends to 4ft 6in wide.
