All equipment can be powered by shore power, inverter (within power draw limits), or generator to allow cooking whilst passage making, without the safety concerns of gas. WHEELHOUSE SALOON: The saloon has excellent natural light and ventilation creating a very comfortable area to relax or entertain in. L-shaped settee to starboard with storage beneath, currently used as an occasional single berth but could be modified to offer a double berth if required.

High quality teak interior fit-out with teak and holly sole boards, cream carpets and complimenting curtains throughout. The hull sides and ceilings have been insulated for improved heat insulation and soundproofed saloon floor panels fitted to reduce noise when underway. EXTERNAL SPACE: The raised aft cockpit has a helm position to starboard with pedestal mounted helm and navigators seats and a large open aft deck offering excellent space for alfresco dining and entertaining. Full aft cockpit enclosure which can be used as a bimini and is designed to allow easy access fore and aft.

Twin deep aft lockers provide plenty of space for warps, fenders, tender and more, with stainless steel davits also fitted. Bathing platform with folding swim ladder. Mechanical Systems Located under the wheelhouse sole, Daf 575 6-cylinder 105hp diesel engine. Freshwater cooled via heat exchanger to keel cooling unit for simplicity and increased reliability. Single lever controls and hydraulic wheel steering at both helms. Twin 285 litre fuel tanks with balance valve. Shaft drive via PRM hydraulic gearbox to 3-bladed propeller. Vetus bow thruster with controls at both helms. The current owner has maintained the engine to a high standard and the engine has proved very reliable during their ownership. Current engine hours are displaying at 1331hrs although it is believed that this may have been reset and that the actual engine hours could be closer to 2000hrs as this seems very low for a craft of her style and age. Alternator replaced in 2021. When cruising at around 7-8kts the fuel consumption is approximately 5 litres per hour, at canal speeds around 2.5 litres per hour offering an impressive cruising range and very low fuel costs for a boat of this size.

Construction Van der Werff Multivlet believed to have been built in 1987 and first commissioned in 1990. Blue painted steel displacement hull with long keel profile (protecting rudder and propeller) and heavy duty rope fendering. White painted steel superstructure and grey decks. Dual station hydraulic wheel steering. 2.6m (8'6") Air draft with canopy folded down. In 2017 the hull was media blasted back to bare metal and then coated with Jotun epoxy paint system. All windows were removed, the entire superstructure and decks were painted before the windows were re-bedded. All work was professionally carried out to a very high standard.
