A popular and practical river boat, examples can still be found to hire on the French canals.

The interior layout packed ample accommodation into a modestly sized boat, with the double en-suite owners cabin aft, a forward twin berthed cabin with separate shower and toilet, and three further convertible berths in the saloon.

Normally fitted with a single engine for river use, bow thrusters were sometimes added to aid maneuverability, and in some cases, like for the '83 Southampton Show boat, twin Perkins 4108s were installed.
