The boat has been designed specifically for the purpose. It offers an adaptable space to convert from shop, to workshop and event space.
The hull has been crafted by expert boat builders and has been fit-out by an industry leading team whose 15 years boat building experience is supported by backgrounds in product and furniture design as well as shopfitting.
The design of the boat provides built-in shelving to showcase titles at child height, additional headroom, a roof window and reading nooks for children. Materials such as Birch plywood have been chosen to provide a modern and light environment which is welcoming to both children and their parents.
The boat is fitted with a kitchen and Espresso machine and serves great coffee.
