The passage style galley features wooden shaker style units with brass ticket drawer handles with inset melamine worktops in a mottled grey finish. Tiled uplifts are in salmon pink.

The living area is separated from the bedroom by a large walk through bathroom with shower and cassette toilet.
The bedroom is accessed via a sliding door behind which is a recess that houses the radiator, shelving and dressing mirror with light above.
To the side of this is a wardrobe that houses the Alde boiler. Between here and the front doors are 2 single beds that make into a double (Boards for this are stored in the wardrobe). If you wanted to use as a double bed a mattress would have to be sourced.
Underneath each window above the beds is a shelf for housing the morning cuppa and other useful essentials. At the head of each bed is another shelf and reading light and above the portside one is also another car stereo linked to nearby speakers.
Although described by the builder as a semi trad, the back deck is more cruiser style with complete enclosure. This includes a wicket gate so that any young children and or pets can be safely confined to this area.
A canvas cover protects the deck from inclement weather once the boat is tied.
The compact front deck has a glass cratch and canvas cover, making it an ideal spot for the morning cuppa. There is a large cupboard across the front which can double as a bench.
Paintwork on the sides is in good condition and the roof was repainted in 2016. There are 2 top boxes on the roof for additional storage.
Kingfisher is ideal for a couple or family as it has plenty of outside space across the fore and aft decks as well as cabin sections so that everyone can enjoy their own space occasionally. We are expecting a quick sale on this one, so if you are interested don’t delay in arranging to view.
