South West Durham Steelcraft bloomed from the early 90s building a solid client base on local (Yorkshire) waterways and carrying off national Best Production Builder Award in 1992. SWDS boats generally have a sturdy, practical mid-market identity. An excellent little starter boat for those who would like to get afloat. The aft bedroom has a wider than normal permanent double bed, luxury in comparison to many other small boats. A further two berths can be formed on the large comfortable sofa bed in the saloon. Raised pipe handrails are always a plus point when safety is considered for those walking the gunwales, and fitted cratch and pram-style covers increase the useable space. If preferred the existing sofa bed could possibly be replaced by something smaller, allowing a solid fuel stove to be fitted.
