AQUA NAR­ROW­BOATS

Canal Boat - - Crick Boat Show -

River­side 65ft cruiser £190,000

Aqua Nar­row­boats al­ways pro­duce very smart boats, and this one is no ex­cep­tion. This 65 footer has an all-painted in­te­rior, and the tone is set as soon as you step into the galley, which is at the stern. The units have glossy doors il­lu­mi­nated by LED light­ing un­der the work­tops. There are more LEDs in the sa­loon, down the edges of the hearth for the Re­fleks diesel stove. The smoked glass mir­ror on the bulk­head adds to the sleek look. Fur­ther for­ward in the boat is a day room, then a walk-through shower room with lam­i­nate walls and glossy doors. The cabin at the bow has a cross bed and mir­rors on the wardrobe doors.

The boat is built on a ColeCraft shell, with a square cruiser stern to max­imise space. It’s pow­ered by a Beta 50, while the electrics use the Master­volt lithium pack. This in­cludes two lithium bat­ter­ies and a suit­ably large al­ter­na­tor, and a 3kw in­verter. This adds con­sid­er­ably to the cost of the boat, but brings the ben­e­fits of plenty of elec­tri­cal power and su­per fast charg­ing.
