Steel Away was built by Piper Boats Ltd in 2017 and launched in March of that year. The quality of the Piper build is clearly in evidence. She is a beautiful boat and is regularly commented on as being "like new". She has the added benefit of a full aft deck canopy which has removable sides to create a sun bimini top in the summer but with the sides fitted, she has a lovely "conservatory" effect giving extra entertaining room in the autumn, winter and spring. She has an additional set of sides which are flyscreens for those days when the weather is hot and the bugs are being annoying. She has double glazed, thermal break windows. She is fitted with stainless steel rails and bollards. She is wired for 24v and 12v systems.
Double glazed wheelhouse.
