A se­lec­tion of beau­ties in­clud­ing an eye-catch­ing tug

For boaters who like to stand out in the crowd, there’s the 54ft tug Saul from XR&D boat builders, fit­ted out by Jenny Wren and the own­ers in 2011 in a Bo­hemian style.

Quirky fea­tures on Saul – which has the look of a work­ing boat - in­clude lime green stove tiles and a Ja­panese style mu­ral on the aft cabin wall, adding to the one-off spirit that raises smiles.

Pow­ered by a Beta Ma­rine JD3, de­liv­er­ing 30hp and a PRM 260 gear­box, Saul han­dles very well with the power plant cre­at­ing a pleas­ing at­mos­phere though noise and at­mos­phere.

The galley is fit­ted with solid beech work­tops and a Belfast sink, a Waeco 12volt fridge and 240 wash­ing ma­chine. Cook­ing is with a Dometic hob and oven with grill. The boat has a Sala­man­der Hob­bit solid fuel stove, We­basto Ther­mo­top-C diesel cen­tral heat­ing and a Morco gas wa­ter heater.
