A traditional narrowboat for Sims 3 (albeit with a distinct lack of pointiness around the bows): an exercise in trying to pack a lot into a small space and an excuse to play around with the ‘Roses and Castles’ style of canal painting.

Despite the compact floor plan, it has accommodation for four and play-testing with four adults produced a surprising lack of pathing issues. The main problem is that, when in port, the paperboy walks right through the boat to drop the paper in the bows. Replacing the archway at the stern with a normal front door would fix that but I wanted something that looked more authentic.

The boat has a master bedroom with full bathroom, children’s room with bunk beds and adjoining all-in-one bathroom, kitchen/dining/living/study area and outdoor sitting/dining area.
