Ready for Spring 2024

Offgrid Live-aboard

​£135,000.00 plus VAT (£163,000.00)

The boat on show is a 45'x10' from Colecraft with a 10.5m x 3m internal cabin space and a cruiser style stern. Colecraft are a premium hull manufacturer who work to the highest standards. We have carried out the fit out using sustainable natural  and reclaimed/repurposed materials where possible.

We have made a video diary of our processes, please scan to see our Tic Toc channel:

We have been live aboards for 14 years, so far, and we have used our experience to identify what is required to live aboard comfortably for long periods while keeping cruising fun. We have had a range of boats from 30' narrowboats to 60'x12' dutch barges and have settled on the 45'x'10 as the ideal size for a couple or single person. Her size provides a healthy balance between enjoyable easy cruising and spacious comfortable interior with that all important storage.

The Insulation and light outer paint job ensure warmth in winter with a minimal requirement to run the heating whilst also keeping her cool in summer.  The alternator/battery/solar set up will see you charging the batteries back up quickly minimising running the engine so you can enjoy the peace and quiet.
