She's bright and airy, has excellent 360 degree views of the neighbouring waterway. Malibu is designed for two in a traditional wooden boat style. I'm going to be out of the country during Oct & Nov so if you would like to care for my baby, please get in touch and we can discuss expenses but these would be minimal. Pic attached.
