It’s exciting times at Haines. With a good Southampton boat Show behind us, the order book is healthy and a variety of models are currently in build.
As most familiar with Haines will know, there’s very often a new model development or update to an existing model on the drawing board. The focus at present is the 32 Sedan and Offshore.
A popular feature of past sedan models has been the side door by the helm position, which Haines are now pleased to be able to offer as an option on both boats. The opening extends above the helmsman providing great side deck access and increased open air feel.
The layout has also been updated with the galley moving up into the aft of the saloon to port, freeing space to separate the toilet and shower into individual compartments. That in turn provides a significant increase in forward cabin floor and dressing space.
Another innovative update lies within the flexibility of the saloon seating. A raised, forward facing, double navigator’s seat performs a dual function and can also fold down into the familiar L shaped saloon sofa arrangement. The side bench of the sofa can also pivot out into the saloon from the aft corner, incorporating a flip over back backrest. The whole arrangement can then be used as a traditional forward/aft dinette or with saloon doors fully open, as part of the general cockpit seating.
All of these features will be available to see in our next display boat; an offshore variant fitted with the single 270hp Toyota based Nanni T4.
Due early in the New Year, it’s fair to say we can’t wait to take delivery! Take a look at our full range of Haines boats.
