If you would like to tailor your vessel to meet you exact requirements we are more than happy to discuss your requirements.
The Aqualine range of boats is unique offering the kind of quality and character that is normally associated with an expensive bespoke-built craft. It is made possible through a combination of innovative construction, the careful sourcing of fine materials and the employment of traditionally-skilled boat builders.
Aqualine has nearly a two decade long heritage of creating boats that are in a class of their own. It is this experience, combined with constant improvements, that makes them a byword for excellence. We don't compromise… so why should you?
Every inch of an Aqualine boat has been designed and crafted with care, from bow to stern. These are boats you'll instantly feel at home in thanks to the use of warm, traditional materials combined with all the modern conveniences you could ask for.
They are also boats you can make your own. Not only can you choose from different models, you can also increase the length in 1ft increments up to 70ft. With a choice of different layouts to suit different needs, plus options to personalise your boat with luxury features and finishes, the Aqualine concept brings you so many of the advantages of a bespoke craft, but at production-built prices.

Lining and Wood Type
All boats come with a choice of Ash or Oak. The roof in the standard craft is solid hardwood linear tongue and groove. The bedroom and bathroom have diagonal tongue and groove on the cabin sides. The remaining cabin area (galley, saloon) has a panelled effect, lined with deep hardwood trim, Full panelling or full tongue and groove also available.

Fancy extra sleeping space but don’t want a bigger boat?
Why not fit a dinette in the salon and have an extra two berth sleeping area for guests, or extend the length of the boat to incorporate a separate dinette cabin.

The utility area is fitted as standard on a Monaco design, which can be utilised for optional second toilet. Using our bespoke length service you can of course incorporate this in to other designs.
Diesel fired central heating system with timer which runs the finrads and a heated towel rail in the bathroom, also provides hot water through a twin coil calorifier, with immersion. The calorifier is also connected to the engine cooling circuit meaning that the engine will heat the hot water.
