Pick of the week - Briar Rose

Now here's one we really like.  Some weeks we just find something that if we were looking we'd be happy with it.  But this one... I want to buy this boat!!  It's a Braidbar boat listed with ABNB : Briar Rose

Positives : ticks every box so very little additional expenditure, lovely timberwork, great flooring, cupboards in bathroom, great little fridge with a freezer, good washing machine, proper tiled shower with glass screen, love the Braidbar kitchen dresser.
Negatives : not much! but... if I have to think of something... the bed would need to be turned to a cross bed or extended sideways, the access through the trad hatch looks a little tight but we'd live with that.

You can't get much better than a Tim Tyler hull and a Braidbar fit out. Notice the circular cut out interior bulkheads, - that is a Braidbar signature feature.

Yes, we did know about their bulkhead signature. It's the only thing we don't like about the appearance of the boat!
