The build of our special 70ft x 12ft Kingsley barge continues at pace with the interior fit out almost complete. The bespoke hand built, painted galley is now complete with the Techstone workstops having been just installed. The interior layout also includes three bedrooms. With the addition of a sofa bed in the saloon this makes for a very flexible eight berth family boat!
The layout of the boat features the master bedroom at the bow with a double bed, bedside cabinets, wardrobes and an ensuite that features a sink and cassette toilet. The family bathroom follows with a shower, vanity unit and macerating pump out toilet. The second bedroom is next which has a double bed, curved desk, wardrobes and cupboards. The spacious saloon features a solid fuel stove mounted on a tiled hearth, a large entertainment unit that is designed to house a 42 inch TV and plenty of space for the new owners furniture. The large galley is next fitted with all the appliances needed for a high end live aboard boat and leads up into the wheelhouse. The wheelhouse with its commanding views across the roof of the boat incorporates automatically collapsing side widows and roof for negotiating low bridges, as well as access into the engine room below the floor. Behind the wheelhouse, steps lead down into the rear cabin which houses the third bedroom, this again has a double bed, curved desk, wardrobes and cupboards.
We will be releasing more information about this special boat as the build progresses. Watch this space for more details and photographs.
