Current status:


This semi-cruiser stern narrowboat gives you the best of both worlds, an aft deck with taff seats forward of which is a protected area for crew members/guests to congregate. The interior is fitted out in a modern style with painted surfaces complimented by oak panels and solid trim. There is a bright and airy ambience created with the help of four sets of side doors and a skylight. Festina Lente s huge galley provides a copious amount of worktop, storage cupboards and drawers ideal for both cooking and entertaining. She is complete with a large Belfast sink, integrated Miele dishwasher and fridge, microwave and the usual LPG cooking. There is a bench seat in the aft cabin suitable for daytime use which converts into a comfortable cross bed double. In the saloon, the bench seats provide further accommodation as two singles. With a large 24V battery bank and Victron Multiplus 3kW inverter/charger, there is sufficient power to run all of the on board appliances. A trusty Beta 43 engine and Vetus bow thruster makes handling her a pleasure even in the trickiest of situations.
