Step aboard The Guardsman, she is a modern and well equipped 65ft by 12ft 6” Widebeam Cruiser, built and fit out by Collingwood in the popular reverse layout. The Guardsman is anything but your ‘off the shelf’ boat. She has been lovingly and thoughtfully designed to accommodate for a wealth of space and tech with extras on board totalling approximately £30,000. These extras mean that with the extensive Victron electric on board, the vessel has never had to be plugged into mains electric, despite the owners living aboard. This not only will save money on those electric bills, but also the complications that can arise from being plugged into shore power.
Let’s get into the specs. Stern deck with wheel control or tiller if required. Propulsion is provided by a Canaline 60hp engine, PRM 150 gearbox and a Vetus 95kgf Bow Thruster. Hot water via a Webasto Therma Pro 9kw diesel heater (connected to the smart switch), with central heating via a Webasto. Electrical systems comprising of a 12v, 240v landline, Victron 3kw Inverter and Victron multiplus controller monitor, stand-alone petrol generator, 4 solar panels, 1 starter, 4 Leisure batteries and 2 bow thruster batteries – and this is just the basic electrical systems! The Victron smart systems on board enable an owner to access these systems via a mobile device.
Now let’s step inside. Upon entering The Guardsman you are invited by a modern and spacious saloon housing a smart tv, Sonos soundbar under TV and surround speakers behind sofa, Morso Swift multi fuel burner and 3 seater sofa.
