The interior of this boat is very deceptive from the outside and provides ample accomodation for a boat of this size.
In the bow is a nice sized galley connected to the saloon which is the main cabin where you can sit around the traditional drop leaf teak table. There are built in teak and maple cupboards and drawers with seating that converts into a double bed.
Walking back towards the wheelhouse there's an area for coats and boots on the left and a door on the right leading to a very neat shower room, toilet and sink basin with a hot water boiler in a seperate cupboard (all well ventilated).
Walking up the steps into the wheelhouse the engine is installed below in a well sound insulated compartment. The wheelhouse is one of Tug Swallows best features and was craftsman made from solid teak, hence it has its own seperate protective cover custom made by Attwools. In the wheelhouse there is a good array of dials and switches controlling everything on the boat from deck and navigation lights to pumps and master switches etc. At the rear of the wheelhouse are double opening windows onto the rear deck.
At the rear of the wheelhouse are double doors which open into the rear cabin. Headroom is restricted here but on each side is a single bunk with storage below and access to the 3" prop shaft, packing glands and rudder gear.
Tug Swallow is fitted out in teak and maple to exacting standards with 1 double berth in the dinette and 2 single berths in the rear cabin.
It's still great after 30+ years to see people's amazement when they enter the boat for the first time and see how well designed and laid out she is.
