Designed as a long-term cruiser for extended adventures, Sunflower has Beta Marine 43Hp engine with 3.5Kw TravelPower, a Mastervolt 3.0Kw combi inverter-charger with EasyView touch-screen controls fitted Feb 2021, Solar panels. Sunflower also has a Stovax Brunel solid fuel stove and New Webasto ThermoTop-Evo diesel central heating system for warm comfortable winters too.
The interior of the boat is fitted in the conventional style of all Reading Marine boats; quality paneling with a hardwood trim and excellently implemented carpentry throughout.
Repainted in 2017, the exterior of the boat is in great condition and the hull has been blacked here at Aqueduct to keep the maintenance of the boat on track.
