The Caravel Bateau Freestanding Bathtub
The Pewter Lustre finish offers an a stunning metallic depth that brings the character of the cast iron bateau to life. The Caravel is homage to the original French Boat baths that date back to the ‘La Belle Époque’ time of late 19th Century France. Deep set, inviting and lavish, the Caravel Bateau cast iron bath is one of our largest baths and the interior is genuine Vitreous Enamel, an ultra-tough and resistant material.
Cast iron baths are excellent heat conductors and retain the water temperature much longer than acrylic bathtubs. Even after the bath has been emptied it will remain warm to the touch.
Extremely strong and durable, and nearly impossible to scratch or dent, a cast iron bath is the definition of a timeless investment piece. Each cast iron bath comes with gentle undulations as a result of the manufacturing process making each bath unique. The interior is genuine Vitreous Enamel, an ultra-tough and resistant material with a shine finish. Please see the handmade characteristics.
Every bath comes with a 5-year manufacturer's guarantee so you can indulge with confidence. Don't forget to add a bath waste kit - refer to specification for details.
