The Royale Houseboat

The Royale is a 56ft cruiser, recently refurbished and boasts 2 top of the range Volvo engines with a cruising speed of 8 knots, up to a maximum of 12 knots.  She has 2 silent generators which work around the clock for air-conditioned comfort in the salon, the stateroom and 2 twin cabins.  The Stateroom and one twin both have ensuite facilities, and there is another separate shower/toilet facility easily accessible from the other twin cabin.  She has a Scotsman ice machine installed and plenty of space on the main open deck for dining and relaxing.  There is a comfortable sun lounging deck to soak up the rays and enjoy the panoramic views.  Off the stern, there is a Bermuda deck to fish off or access the tender boats for fishing (She is known as the most successful bream fishing boat on the lake). If clients prefer to have dinner in the salon, the crew will be happy to set up a table.  The crew are very experienced, the captain has been working on the lake for 20 years, the last 12 as a captain.  The second member of the crew acts as a deckhand and chef, producing feasts to delight.
