What can I add to great reviews below, Pros - Great boat, easy to handle even for other half at 5'4" sat at the wheel. There is a bench seat across from the wheel so others can sit high and lookout front, even sat at table good view out rear and across. Great for fishing of the back. 240volt. Cons - Double bed is 6' wall to wall. Not the low deck type so high step to get on. Will been hiring this again.

We hired Melody 3 at the end of June this year, what a great boat, clean, tidy, spacious (space required as 4 ladies on board)easy to handle and great layout, so impressed hiring her again in October. Also, as not mentioned above she is 240v.

Recently returned from hiring Melody 4 for a short break. The boat was totally stripped out and refitted for the 2005 season and so everything still looked very new, and was of nice quality, and all worked perfectly, and one of the best value in the fleet I think. The engine (also new) is outside at the stern of the boat, so cruising is quieter than most and the boat also handled very well, and the heating was very efficient and warmed the boat very quickly. Can't really fault, would definately consider hiring this class again, one of the best I've had from the yard so far.

hired numbers 2 and 3 of this class this year nicely refitted and very comfy engine on aft well would benefit from some sound proofing warm air heating soon warms the boat through we found it made it to hot after about 30 mins can highly recommend
