Wide Beam River Cruiser

The Vegas River Cruiser is designed with all the characteristics of a city apartment but with the capability of cruising the waterways, UK and European with simplicity.

The Vegas River Cruiser is 60ft x 12ft and built with a chine making it highly responsive to the helm, therefore it dramatically improves the manoeuvrability, making the River Cruiser a joy to steer.  A chine also facilitates mooring in shallow waters.

The Vegas River Cruiser is also fitted with hydraulic steering to enable defined steering of the boat.  They are built with a rounded square stern, lockers and a curved wraparound seating area to maximise the outdoor space.

The Vegas River Cruisers are externally shot blasted (except base plate) to remove the mill scale, formed when hot rolled.   Under the waterline is painted with a two pack epoxy blacking.  Above the waterline is painted in a two pack paint system to provide prolonged impact & abrasion protection.

Fitted out using only the finest quality materials, including solid oak, by our team of experienced craftsmen, the Vegas River Cruiser  offers excellent value for money with a very competitive price tag.

The layout of the River Cruiser from bow to stern is:  Bedroom, Bathroom, 2nd bedroom (optional), Saloon followed by the Galley.

The River Cruisers are British built by ourselves from base plate to sign writing and come complete with a Recreational Craft Directive, Category D, full owner’s manual with operating instructions, issued by an independent surveyor and a 12 month warranty.
