JL Pinder s of Stoke Works, Worcestershire can trace their boat building history back to the dawn of the leisure boating age, a family owned company which is still being run by the second generation. They have always enjoyed a reputation for building good looking, sturdy craft. Many people would say that the fit-out of Buttercup is basic but a better way of describing it would be no-nonsense with less to go wrong, just allowing you to enjoy what the canals have to offer. Completed in American white oak panels with contrasting darker trim, the interior is a pleasant place to while away the hours. The cabin is kept cosy by a solid fuel stove which is backed up by diesel central heating. Buttercup is ideal for two with the bench seats in the saloon providing accommodation for two guests to be invited aboard.
