Emily’s interior is enormous for a boat of 45ft yacht.
She offers a completely different level of comfort to a First 40
She has a spacious triple cabin forward with a King size bed, electric heads and a 2.1m single bunk. We make our own fresh water from salt water using the power from the sun.
There are two other spacious double cabins.
Cougar is for hardcore sailors not bothered by the luxuries of life, but she does have eight single bunks and one double.
