Fwd cabin is the galley,rear cabin is the sleeping quarters.with integrated toilet,shower unit with ceramic shower tray.
Hot water supply from mains power and engine.

This boat has been meticulously rebuilt internally over the last 3 years from bow to stern plus it benefits from double glazing used in motor homes that come complete with an integral fly screen plus pull down night shades that keep the cabin cool on hot days and dark in those bright summer early mornings.
The main benefit of these windows is that you do not get moisture or condensation build up at all,no smelly and damp curtains.
The whole of the boat interior panels including ceiling have all been removed and new ones installed complete with LED down lighters in the galley and wall mounted units in the sleeping quarters.
Centre deck houses the BMC 1500 reconditioned Diesel engine through a gearbox which drives a single propellor.
On the aft deck there are two 6kg gas bottles stored in a gas safe container.
Just for info those of you who have seen Creightons advertised before are considerably lower in price for one reason only, they are usually in very poor condition and have no interior modernisation which makes them less desirable,please bear this in mind before considering an offer or an inspection,depending on how close you are to my price there will be some wiggle room.(For info when you are standing in the cockpit with the roof in the fitted position the headroom is around 5ft 8 inches please bear this in mind when considering viewing the boat). With the roof down limitless headroom available.
