For some reason a lot of potential boat buyers are fixated with a length of 57ft, but a 70ft craft can navigate most of what the UK s canals and rivers have to offer, and of course have considerably more internal space. Bright Spark is from well known shell builder, G&J Reeves, with a solid fit out to a good professional standard using quality materials, which give the boat a warm homely feel. The larger than normal aft cabin has plenty of cupboards and space to double up as either a workshop or somewhere to carry on your hobbies whilst afloat. The forward saloon houses comfortable armchairs with matching footstools, a corner display cupboard and a cosy solid fuel stove. Bright Spark is ideal for residential use, or equally for long term cruising with plenty of storage, washing machine and engine driven generator. The hull sides were grit blasted and blacked with the addition of new anodes amidships in February 2020, along with a professional cabin top and sides repaint.
