An excellently presented 35foot Aintree Beetle fresh to the market. Hardly used, owner selling due to family personal reasons. Perfectly priced and price to illustrate high quality of the vessel. 

Beautifully finished with oak interior complimented by cream plywood walls. When the boat was purchased from the manufacturers, it was fitted out with numerous extras. Stainless steel handrails were purchased for increased bow safety, a 22" TV, dressing table with corner cupboard and wine rack were also installed.

All fittings are meticulously thought out, versatility has been included with two convertible seating areas transforming into two double beds forward and aft. Forward and aft double opening doors allow for a warm, airy and spacious feel throughout the vessel. 

An improved oven/grill was also purchased when the vessel was built to enable for faster cooking and increased space for larger dishes to be utilised. A beautiful hob and sink set up finished with glass top allows for plenty of space whilst in use and increase work surface when not in use. 

An excellent, increased output 1200W Victron 35Amp inverter is factory installed for multiple devices to be plugged in at once. Very low engine hours on a 30HP Beta 3 Cylinder diesel engine coupled with a powerful Eberspacher Diesel fuelled central heating system lead to a very comfortable experience whilst off the dock. Engine still under warranty for another 3 and half years or for another 840 Engine Hours. 

A beautiful wet room provides a high end bathroom with laminate waterproof walls and excellent bathing facilities. A cartridge toilet allows for easy removal of waste without the hassle of finding the nearest pump out facilities.
