Enjoy the forward sun deck and split sliding canopy during the summer months, whilst warm air heating will keep you warm and cosy throughout the winter. Each Picnic Boat seats a maximum of 10 people and includes a WC and fully equipped galley kitchen with gas, hob, fridge sink, crockery and utensils.
