I love the weekly update box on the ABNB website. There isn't always something of interest to us and over Christmas there hasn't been much new.
This week we saw one that ticked nearly all of our boxes. The rear cabin would make a great little office and still leave a single bunk to sit on or for a visitor to sleep. There is no washing machine on this boat but there is space to install one and also to store a porta potty in the rear cabin.
We would prefer a pair of armchairs for seating but the saloon isn't big enough. We would make the dinette a half dinette to make space, especially as there is already somewhere for a guest to sleep.
I requested the detailed PDF brochure on this boat and the engine has only 691 hours on it.
