Contemporary. Modern. Unique
Crafted by Collingwood, loved by you
Let’s look at the inside: Depending on your requirements, a 70ft x 12ft Collingwood widebeam boat could easily give you 2 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms/shower rooms and a living room/dining room/3rd bedroom – this room would be surprisingly large and could include dining table & chairs, large TV, wood burning stove and a settee that would convert into a good quality double bed. All in all, that’s enough beds for 6 people. Furthermore, you would have a fully equipped kitchen including oven, hob, fridge freezer and, should you so wish, a dishwasher and a washing machine. The large rear deck, if covered by a pram hood, would make an ideal conservatory type room with comfortable seating and a table – a truly lovely place for entertaining with beautiful river views. Previous customers tell us that some of their land-dwelling friends are quite jealous of the homeliness of their boat. Many people, who have stayed on one of our floating homes have often commented that they forgot that they were on a boat.
Now for the technical stuff: You would have a water tank for fresh water, a waste water tank and a fuel tank for engine and heating. We could also supply and fit a good array of solar panels with batteries to make you almost self-sufficient for your electricity needs – the winter is the only time you might need to supplement your needs with either a generator or shore supply. You could, of course, get us to fit a central heating system for your comfort. The boat would be well insulated and the engine powerful enough to make cruising a real joy.
