from 60ft x 10ft to 70ft x 12ft
Our wide beam boat, The Canterbury, has earnt its reputation as one of the most desirable crafts of the waterways. Luxurious and spacious, bright and airy, the clever design allows you flexibility to create a layout that works for you. There’s a choice of widths: 10, 11 or 12ft and you can choose the length in 1ft increments up to 70ft.
There are plenty of options to make your boat your own. Switch a shower cubicle for a full-sized bath with overhead shower, add bunk beds or create a study area. You can even add our Explorer Pack which gives your boat a distinctive curved stern and an additional 2ft of space for al fresco dining or socialising. And now from 2020 we have introduced a more “design lead” Canterbury that makes the most of our in-house interior design side of the business, this boat really would not feel out of place next to a city centre apartment.
Whether moored up in the city or cruising the waterways of Britain and the continent, the Canterbury wide beam does it without compromise.
The Canterbury 68 x 12ft qualifies for a lower rate of VAT when selected as your main residential home, as defined by HMRC.
THE WIDE BEAM IN MORE DETAIL
The bathroom features a full-sized corner shower with a mixer unit surrounded by a chrome quadrant screen, alternatively a full-sized bath with overhead shower is available as an option. The vanity unit with hand basin includes a wall mirror with illuminated pelmet. There is a heated towel rail, and shelving to provide further storage. An electric macerator (pump out) toilet is fitted as standard. On our 2020 the vanity is a stylish bespoke painted unit with a surface mounted basin, feature wall lights, under pelmet lighting and a quartz splash back. All set on stylish designer tiles.
Choose from a fixed kingsize or super-kingsize bed. There is plenty of storage with under-bed drawers, overhead cupboards with downlights, two bedside cupboards with drawers plus more cupboard space either side of the bow doors. Full length wardrobes, two mirrored, provide all important hanging space.
Our 2020 Canterbury master bedroom has a more “boutique hotel” style feel using an upholstered bed base and wall covering above the bed with inset designer wall lights. Wardrobes are painted and a choice of colour is available here. As there is a large amount of cabinetry the painted finish creates a softer feel for those looking to make this their bedroom more homely.
Second Bedroom / Study
There are many design options for the second bedroom allowing you to create a space that works for you. Some customers choose a single berth and a workstation area, others prefer a double bed to create a comfortable guest room. Our 2020 is essentially based on the standard layout but with the softer painted cabinetry similar to the main cabin which brings the same benefits. This is complemented by the upholstered headboard/wall and designer wall light. This bedroom can also be omitted completely, giving you more space in the saloon, or the room can be left empty for you to add your own furniture.
The large saloon can easily accommodate plenty of free-standing furniture and features a cast iron solid fuel stove. Depending on your layout there is a choice of various storage units. The 42” HD ready digital flat screen TV can be wall mounted above the stove or can be free standing, and there is space to configure your dining area in a number of different ways. Our 2020 uses the same layout in both the saloon and galley incorporating a mix of various paint finishes to create the desired homely effect. In addition there is a marble fireplace surround, lantern and upgraded wall lights which complete the look. Other 2020 updates include the ironmongery throughout which has been changed to a brass designer handle and the roof is painted a lighter colour enabling a lighter and airy feel.
A split or u-shaped galley is available, either with solid hardwood or painted doors and a choice of granite or quartz worksurfaces. There is a full-sized stainless-steel hob and oven, an integrated fridge and a deep full-size stainless-steel sink with monobloc taps. The full height larder unit with drawers and spice racks rivals even the most exclusive kitchens.
