This 12.5-meter boat has a large deck space with seating and dinning, great to enjoy the scenery. Inside, we have a sofa style seating area with dining facilities, perfect for hosting guests and clients. There are kitchen and bathroom amenities too. Our air-suspension seats provide the highest comfort on longer journeys or bumpier crossings. The boat also has sleeping berths which can double as large storage areas.
