Honest advice?? Hire something else. One of the Bourne 38's like "Broadland Mars" for instance.This is personal opinion obviously so make of it what you will. I'm sure there will be other comments. It was the worst boat we have ever hired for both accomodation and comfort. The inside helm position is crackers being almost midships.
Really uncomfortable trying to helm from the top. The so called two bains at the stern are one cabin with a piece of hardboard dividing them and very cramped. Can you tell it was not my favourite!
Others are likely to be polar opposite to my thoughts.

Hi,

Hired this 4yrs ago. Never again.
Front of boat inside loads of space.
Driving position inside is terrible.
Bedrooms toooo small.


Many thanks

To reinforce my own comments, While we were out on this boat, we had to have the yard out to the batteries a couple of times. On one occasion it was the yard owners own son who attended and actually said this was the worst boat they had ever produced!
