    Filande, a classic motor yacht, lovingly refitted throughout over the last six years, is now offered for sale. Filande can be used as a static home, a cruising home, or both, and is fully equipped for all eventualities. Filande was dry docked in 2017 and had a full survey which is available upon request, with all recommended work carried out. It is rare these days to find a wooden boat that has been properly maintained and dry docked, and this in itself provides a level of comfort knowing this has been done correctly.
    Filande is not just a home, she is a lifestyle, all the comforts of home with the ability to move her as and when required, and as such she offers an amazing, life changing opportunity. Very strongly built and designed for sea conditions, she would be just at home cruising the inland waterways of the UK and Europe.
The lounge area is spacious and light, an amazing family room that will offer incredible views wherever you find yourself. The multi fuel burning stove is a great focal point of this area, as well as complimenting the full central heating system. 
    Downstairs there are four cabins, two with double berths, and two with twin berths. The master cabin has a walk in wardrobe, as well as space for a potential en suite area . All bedrooms have plenty of built in storage, and are well decorated and light. 
There are two toilets, a bath with shower attachment, and a further shower.
    The kitchen diner is a delight, beautifully fitted out with oak work tops, and again light with plenty of storage. Appliances include a gas stove, dish washer, fridge, freezer, washer and dryer.
Externally, Filande has been completely repainted, and fibre glassed to just above the water line. There are good outside areas at both ends to enjoy your surroundings, in particular the aft area which is 5m by 4m.
    Filande is an exceptional opportunity to change your lifestyle, offering full cruising capabilities and the ability to cruise anywhere, without losing any of the traditional comforts a family home should offer.The boat is freehold and the residential mooring is leased.
