Perhaps I overlooked it? When you go to look at the boat, you may want check to see where you can install a refrigerator unit if you wanted one. Good luck mate!
Thank you for the encouragement, that boat is the top of my shortlist.
I have been getting some very good advice from wingNwing regarding refrigeration in another thread.

I don't think that boat does have refrigeration, but I think I can get with a little 12v coolbox in the beginning and see how I get on.

On another subject, I have to admit a little confusion...
I was under the impression that the term 'head' meant bathroom.
But have been led to believe today that it may also just mean toilet.

If the later is correct, is the little boat pictured above is unlikely to have shower facilities at all?
Do all little yachts do without? or do they have a kind of wetroom shower?
