This 2016 Swift Kon-Tiki 649 is a luxurious six berth motorhome, positioning a fixed overcab bed, a generous front dinette and a spacious rear lounge. This particular example has had very little use from new. The Kon-Tiki range has forever been Swift's flagship model and features a high level of specification, making it one of the most premium motorhomes available on the market. Externally, the 649 has a pleasing external look, featuring colour-keyed front bumpers to match the metallic cab, as well as LED daytime running lights. A silver front grille and new 16in alloy wheels round off the look very well. Taking a look on the nearside you will see that there is a fully reinforced habitation door with central locking fitted. An electric Omni-Step slides out below and is also integrated into the central locking system. Above is a Fiamma F45 roll out awning, creating an outdoor living space when desired. Two external storage lockers can also be found on the nearside; one at the front and one towards the rear. Moving to the back of the 649 you will find that a tow-bar has been fitted, along with a dual-lense reversing camera. This Kon-Tiki also features Swift Command, allowing you to control certain functions of the motorhome directly from your smartphone.

The interior of the 649 is beautifully crafted, with high quality fixtures and fittings along with a premium upholstery scheme. Taking a look at the front cab area you will see that twin seats are housed, offering very high levels of comfort on journeys. Each one has the ability to swivel, comes equipped with two armrests and is fitted with position, height and rake adjustment. Equipment levels are very good too, you have: ABS, power steering, cruise control, air conditioning, electric windows and mirrors, a leather multi-function steering wheel, radio player (with phone connectivity), 2 x 12v sockets, USB points, Remis cab blinds and a rear-view mirror style reversing camera screen. The base vehicle of the Kon-Tiki is the Fiat Euro 6 180bhp 3.0 Multijet, which has covered just 14,000 miles from new.
The overcab bed offers a hugely comfortable sleeping arrangement, via a Duvalay mattress and an abundance of space/headroom. The area is lit very well, thanks to windows either-side, both of which have the ability to open and reveal fresh air too. When it is darker you have an assortment of LED's. A stainless steel ladder can be found and slots in to allow easy access to the bed, whilst a separation curtain can be found when required. To complete, you have the ability to raise the bed via air struts when not in use, creating more headroom within the living space.
The exceptional front lounge is another huge asset to the 649's layout and consists of two facing bench seats and a side sofa. The bench seats come equipped with two three-point seat-belts each, taking the total number of travelling seats to six. The half-leather upholstery offers fantastic levels of comfort, and with the addition of the front seats rotating you can easily sit eight within the area. For dining there is a large table, whilst storage facilities can be found within overhead lockers and space beneath the seating. Due to the Kon-Tiki benefitting from the Alde central heating system, the 649 can be used all year round. To complete the front lounge you have the ability to configure an additional double bed. The table lowers and the cushions fold down, creating a comfortable setup.
As expected from a six berth motorhome of this quality, the level of kitchen specification is very high indeed. You have a full sized oven/grill unit, with a three burner hob and electric hotplate integrated above. An extractor fan is fitted too and proves very useful for removing cooking smells. To the right you will find the Dometic dual-fuel automatic fridge freezer unit, with a gloss black cover to blend with the surroundings. A sink unit can be found above, whilst a stainless steel microwave is situated at eye height. To complete, you have an abundance of storage facilities within cupboards, lockers and drawers.
The end lounge area is the main feature of the 649's layout. Offering an abundance of seating, the area is fantastic for socialising, dining or relaxing. Surrounding windows provide plenty of natural light and views, whilst the area is sumptuously lit via LED's when it is darker. Overhead lockers and space beneath the seating prove useful for storage purposes, whilst an additional freestanding dining table can be placed down, found neatly stored in the wardrobe to the left. Again, this area can configure into a double bed when required. A section pulls out below the chest of drawers and the cushions fold down.
The central washroom is designed with the more popular 'seperate shower' layout. Entering through the door you will find a Thetford C260 electric flush swivel toilet, situated on the left. The wash basin is located centrally and has a chrome mixer tap, vanity unit and a LED lit mirror. On the far right hand side is the spacious shower unit, complete with a folding door and chrome fittings.
