It is indeed Rod. It's an 'Elegance' which is built by Connoisseur in Wroxham. In Ireland its branded as Emerald Star although in France it appears under the Connoisseur name. It looks very nice but at 13ft 6 wide it must be a bit of a barge to try & drive anywhere.
It certainly was a quality boat. Indeed the entire boatyard fleet was Haines-based & all were superb. The owners kindly let us spend the 2 hours we had to wait for our transfer back to the airport sitting on one of their other boats, a Haines 35 & it was beautiful.
Here's another pic at one of the best mooring spots (Haughton's Shore on the Shannon-Erne waterway) with the Haines 35 in the background.
