All sleeping cabins are separated by bathrooms and if used as a 4 berth both these cabins are en-suite. The galley, saloon and dining area are towards the front where another 3 people can sleep as it easily converts at night into another double bed and additional single bed. This traditional layout allows the main sleeping cabins to be out of the way from the social areas in the saloon and outside bow deck as well as offering the best tranquil views through the windows and front doors.  For younger members of your party, Foxhound offers a secondary TV/Gaming room in one of the central twin/double cabins.
The Bow and Stern Decks
Foxhound at 69ft (21m) long has 2 good sized decks at either end.  The bow deck has space for 5 or 6 to sit and the stern deck up to 4, when moored up both decks can convert into sociable areas for alfresco pleasures by simply dropping in a small table that is stowed at all other times.  When cruising our new style Cruiser Stern deck is popular with young families and the less mobile as it offers easier stern access and a seating bench for up to 4 people during cruising times.  Equipped with a powerful Hydraulic Bow Thruster, the semi-cruiser has an elevated steering position for greater visibility and improved weather protection in the steering cockpit.

We had a fabulous long weekend in April. The wind made for an adventurous trip. Boat was well equipped, comfortable and the hand over comprehensive from Patrick Had a nice meal @ The Barge, managed to moor right outside, great on a chilly April evening. We did a pirate day complete with skull & crossbones, with daily jobs picked out of a hat. Would love to do a longer trip. Thank you team
