Kate Boats may be best known for their hire fleet, but they have also specialised in building quality boats for the discerning owner. In this instance, a shapely, well built G&J Reeves shell was chosen. These shells are known for their good looks and handling capabilities. When you marry this up to a powerful, smooth running Beta 43hp engine and Nobels 12V bow thruster, you should have a boat which will perform well in all situations. At 57ft this boat fits within the canals go anywhere length limit. Accommodation is designed for four with a permanent double bed which extends to 4ft 6in wide and the L shape settee forms a cosy double for when the need arises. There is a dedicated utility area aft of the bed, which houses a washer dryer with a convenient storage cupboard above. Power to run this and other appliances is provided by a 3.5kW engine driven generator, a pure sine wave inverter and of course a landline when one is available. Heating aboard is by a Mikuni diesel central heating system which is backed up by a Bubble diesel stove, which is supplied by a separate diesel tank in the well deck. Maintained in an excellent condition with a complete repaint in 2021.
