Have a look at the two Berth Swan Boats, Swan Roamer etc which Richardson’s at Stalham have. Ex Swan Craft Boats. Roomy and comfortable boats, some with baths.

The only trouble with boats that have baths is that you have to get up at 6am to start the engine to warm the water for a 9am bath. Evil Grin

San Fernando from Richardsons also has a bath, probably larger than you'd need for 2 but at least you have the space, as has been said boat baths do take some filling for a pamper bath and if you are over 5ft tall you are no way lying down lol. I did find it quite nice though to shower while in there though, bit more room and no shower tray to drain.

Hi Brian,
I much prefer a bath as many shower areas are rather compact. Unlike myself lol.  
I find a bath far more relaxing than standing crouched in a shower and getting stuck to the curtains.  

As Graham says several Richardson's ex Swancraft  boats  have baths and are decent size. When Swancraft were in business, I regularly hired Swan Roamer, Swan Rapture or Swan Radiance. These are my favourite couple's boats, having a spacious and comfortable interior with a cosy walk around bed. They also have bow thrusters.

As Bella says cold water can be a problem but I ensure the boat has plenty of water before leaving moorings for a new destination. If water is not available I stop to fill up ASAP on route so the water has time to be heated by the engine. Although not always convenient I take my bath on arrival from a decent length journey so that the water is nice and hot. If water is available to top up before departing, happy days. Smile

Kind Regards
Alan...
