'Watermelon Man' is a good example of this popular sports cruiser. Fitted with twin Volvo Penta AQ125's she offers spacious accommodation with four berths in two cabins.
2 v berths / surround seating to bow area. Infill panel converts to huge double berth. Hatch to deck above. Storage under berths. Removable dining table. Galley to port with 4-burner hob, grill, microwave and sink with pressurised hot & cold water. Heads compartment to starboard with sea toilet to holding tank, hand basin and shower. Hanging locker to starboard. Door aft to starboard leads to rear cabin with transverse double berth and windows to cockpit. Hot water via calorifier. 240v shore power.
In the cockpit the original double helm seat ( I still have the original ) has been changed for two separate rotating helm seats and the rear bench seat has been changed for four individual seats. This was done so we could attach a child seat. We have also added a rear removable table.
She has been regularly serviced and was lifted in March 2016 to have the sterndrives serviced and to be anti-fouled by DB Marine in Cookham. A complete new canopy was fitted in 2014 with the addition of a roll up front window. She has a current BSS Certificate until August 2019
I have owned the boat for five year and she has proved to be a fantastic family boat with excellent cockpit space, great headroom in the cabin and enormous beds. Since we have owned her we have cruised the Thames upstream as far as Oxford and downstream through London to Limehouse. We are only selling as we are buying a new boat.
The boat has some age related marks but is in overall good condition. If you have any questions or would like to come and view, please give me a call, Ben on 07976 692025.
Watermelon Man is currently moored on the Thames at Cookham.
