A thoughtfully planned, fine example of a boat from a quality shell builder (Reeves). An ample 65ft, is perfectly suited to extended cruising or liveaboard, featuring an independent shower room, toilet compartment and engine room housing a Beta JD3 diesel unit.
Tastefully lined with a combination of pine tongue and groove to the aft (rear) section and oak faced plywood to the front and middle sections, broken up into framed panels using a mixture of sapele and idigbo.
A notable feature is the hinged aft slide and drop down floor platform allowing enough room for someone to safely accompa... read more

Cleeve Castle has been in our family for over 20 years and we are sad to see her go. She's been very well looked after and is full of traditional character.
I lived aboard this boat for 3 years at one time, navigating from Cambridge to Oxford to London during that time and loved it! Its absolutely perfect for one to live on, cosy in the winter, airy in the summer, ample space for guests to stay over too. Its a small boat so handles easily in the water and easy to manoeuvre in locks and tunnels and always easy to find a mooring spot!
There is a kitchen with counter surfaces, cupboar... read more

With a shell from Tim Tyler, part of the Tyler/Wilson dynasty, you are not only getting a well proportioned, good looking boat but one that will swim superbly as well. Although this boat is of traditional profile the design of the stern could be described as the best of all worlds. A large hatch incorporating a smaller one, slides forward to give the equivalent space of a semi-trad boat, thus allowing crew members to keep the steerer company. There is also a ‘pram-type’ cover which can be quickly lowered or kept in the raised position for when the weather is not at its best. Do... read more
