  According to the web site it does have a 12 volt socket, but it doesn't say where...

So best to call boat yard to be certain.

best regards, Richard.

  In the past the 12 volt socket has been to power the tv but i believe most are now via an invertor (but i might be wrong on that)

  Most of the boats I've been on have a 12v cigarette lighter socket the same as a car. Many have had the socket by the Helm but some may be in a cabin.

Kind Regards

  And some you have to ask for. Its a short cable you
plug into the TV point and the other end is a the
12Volt Socket.
Oh of course, more and more do have 240volt on board.


Lower your windscreen!!! Ooops
too late!

  It appears the 12v socket is in the cabin, just behind the left hand bunk where the Television would go.  In the 'spinning photo' you can see what I feel is the socket but have included a photo below.

Because of this sometimes being the case, I always take with me an extension cable.  Here is what I use from Amazon: at 16 feet long you've got plenty of cable to play with.
