hard top has been added by the owner to make a great shade, and a hatch is leading to the flybridge to enjoy piloting from the fly. Lovely high view from the fly, piloting from the inside make life easier to manoeuvre in the locks.
The present owner had made little improvement on the aft deck, by cutting to little open on both sides to access all types of quays, wherever you moored you can go out more easier if not moored by the stern.
Also, easy to go swimming with a ladder on the side too.
Also, addition of a platform, used to store 2 bikes on a rack, can be dismantled very easy. fixed onto the two Nicols's swimming pool fixation points.
