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.
