*Please note that this boat is sold independent of Mooring.


On boarding Wildflower, you will be welcomed by 4x wide and gradual steps, into a bright and open multifunctional space, which is currently used as a dressing area. There is ample storage here and a foldaway double bed.

Discreetly tucked away at either side of the entrance are the separate toilet and shower rooms. The full size shower cubicle has a Triton Benito Bar shower mixer, and the toilet has a Thetford cassette, full size sink and lots of storage underneath.

As you walk through, you come to beautiful stain glass effect sliding sunshine doors, maximising space and illuminating the bedroom in the sunshine. The raised bed has a huge amount of storage underneath and also a slim-line wardrobe with mirror too. TV aerial point and 2x porthole windows.

On coming through into the open plan kitchen/ living area, you will feel a sense of great space, with everyone saying: ‘it doesn’t feel like a boat!’. This area features a Wren Spectrum kitchen in Spearmint with ample storage, full size integrated fridge and freezer, hotpoint gas hob and electric oven.

Large bi-fold windows , with integrated blinds, open up to an extended bow complete with decking and solar lights.

The layout is deliberately open and not built in. Decor, layout and furnishings can be chosen and redesigned to your taste and allows flexible use of the space. There is even a tv socket on either side for your choice! As well as many plug sockets at different heights throughout, with USB points.

There is both central heating throughout, with 5 radiators and a multifuel stove with a beautiful round mosaic hearth, positioned centrally in the living space to maximise heat.

You may look at Wildflower on Instagram @wildfloweronthewater for an idea of her space and style, however, her current decor has been toned down to sell, so also see current photos.
