FI­NESSE BOATS

Canal Boat - - Crick Boat Show -

Ca­ress of Steel 60ft semi-trad tug £185,000

We tested this boat as a Crick pre­view a cou­ple of months ago ( CB June 2018), and the boat looked as good at the show as it did then. The long tug deck is a thing of beauty, but it’s rel­a­tively unusual to find a tug with a semi-trad stern. The shell is by Jonathan Wil­son, who knows how to make a boat look right. The tug deck houses stor­age ac­ces­si­ble from in­side, and a mo­tor­bike garage big enough for the owner’s mon­key bike. It sits on a hy­draulic lift.

In­side there’s a smart galley at the stern, a break­fast bar, and a sa­loon with a large sofa. The shower room is par­tic­u­larly spa­cious and has a bidet as well as a loo. The cabin at the bow has a cross bed.

The own­ers brought the boat down from Fi­nesse’s base in Sh­effield to Crick, and say it han­dled ex­cep­tion­ally well on a very fast flow­ing River Trent. They were stuck in Ne­wark for a few days by flood wa­ter — so re­ally have had an ad­ven­ture get­ting here.
