Cruiser stern narrowboat | Sleeps 2 – 10 | Tuesday and Saturday start, full week and short breaks

The boat with everything… inside and out!

Exeter Overview


Detailed Description

The back deck is a cruiser stern design on which you have a fixed seat housing the gas cylinders which are used for heating and cooking. There is also room to put a fold up chair so plenty of room for relaxing and alfresco eating.

A large sliding hatch gives easy access to the interior of the boat. Descending a couple of steps you enter the spacious living area, comprising firstly, the well equipped galley/kitchen, in which you will find full size cooker, fridge with freezer and plenty of storage space. Following is a dining area, where you can eat, play games or just sit and watch the world go by. This will also convert into a double bed or two singles. The fixed seats will also extend, so that the area will happily seat a large hungry crew at dinner time. Moving forward is the lounge in which there is a settee for relaxing, or a place to catch up with your favourite TV programme or DVDs or just to watch the flames in your own boat sized wood burner, ideal for winter breaks along the Oxford canal. The settee will also convert into a double bed if required.

Along the corridor is the first of the two bathrooms equipped with shower, wash basin, and a flush toilet. Again there is plenty of storage for all those bathroom bits. The bathroom is designed to be ensuite to the following bedroom.

The first bedroom as with all of our narrow boats is a very flexible space. You can chose to have 1 fixed double bed or 2 singles beds, one  on each side of the narrow boat or 4 single beds in bunk bed form, great for the kids.

The second bathroom again en-suite  to the front bedroom, is very spacious being across the width of the boat, comprising shower, half inset basin and low level flush toilet as you would have at home.

The last room is the master cabin with a 4 foot 6 inch wide bed; this cabin has ample storage for clothes.

Through the front doors you will find your selves on the front deck, this has low level built in seats all the way round, giving you plenty of outside relaxing space. We provide a table for sundowners and outside eating.
