General Comments About the Boat

A compact, easy to handle, all steel traditional stern boat.

Diesel-fired central heating is fitted.

The internal finish throughout is a light Canadian Ash wood which makes it light inside. Hardwearing Karndean oak flooring.
At the stern, two small taffrails support a removable bench seat ideal for two. Steps lead down past an open storage cupboard for coats into the bedroom.

The bedroom is fitted with 2 fixed single beds with storage underneath and 2 wardrobes with lots of shelves. A skylight lets in plenty of light.

A central door leads into the walk-through bathroom which is fitted with a pump-out toilet, a corner basin and a large corner shower. Water and waste gauges are fitted as well.

Door into the saloon which contains a comfortable L-shaped dinette with storage underneath which converts into a good-sized double bed. TV mounted on corner cupboard, with DVD player fitted.

Moving forwards into the central gangway galley area which contains a fridge, cooker, sink/drainer and plenty of storage cupboards.
Steps up through double doors lead into the front cockpit which is quite large, with 2 lockers either side fitted with removable cushions. A gas locker capable of holding 2 gas bottles is also provided.

General comments by vendor

We have been owners since May 2015 and have had some memorable holidays on Little Dawn. My wife is not very tall but even she has found it easy to steer Little Dawn.

This is a friendly syndicate with a regular dialogue between owners (mostly by e-mail). Exchanging weeks is often possible.
