Steel boats are all about laid-back extended cruising and this Linssen is one of the best of its kind.

The 410 has a spacious master cabin aft, a large saloon, lowered galley and dinette forward, with either the option of a twin-bunked guest cabin or a second seating area forward if you value comfort over entertaining guests.

The helm is up on the aft deck, which is protected by a divided canvas canopy that can cover just the helm, or the whole area.

The cherry finish down below exudes warmth, while substantial handrails and plenty of fiddled edges provide some classic Linssen practicality.

A new 410 will set you back around half a million pounds, but go back a few years and you should be able to pick one up from £125,000.
