Sold 50ft Dutch Barge Liveaboard Narrowboat Canal Boat - London


This boat has all you need to live on;

The vessel is fully water tight. It's an amazing example of Dutch engineering. She can easily accommodate 5-6 people for sleeping and has a separate double bedroom with a sink and hot/cold water. The back deck can easily seat 8-10 people. She is fully equipped for use in the UK and Europe and absolutely brilliant on the Thames.

I've sailed this boat so many times and it moves like a dream - so easy to move, it glides! She can go either fast or slow and for both the canal or the river. If you're an experienced skipper, you can even cross the channel. She's got plenty of power.

This is the only vessel of its kind, as it was custom built to a very high standard and in the shape of a Dutch clog. The vessel is made of the finest steel. The hull is between 4 and 6 mm thick. It's all riveted and solid at a weight of 15 tons. She's 50 ft long and 7 ft wide. She goes through locks, so all UK canals are navigable.

This barge comes fully fitted with all new appliances and includes;

A fully fitted gas boiler with hot and cold running water.
Fully fitted bathroom and new fittings, also fully tiled as a wet room.
Separate bedroom with fitted cupboards and fully working sink with hot water.

After 2 years of living on this boat, I am finished at University. So the time has come for me to sell it. If I could stay in London, it would not be for sale. Call me for a proper chat and grab a bargain. This boat is worth over £65,000 but I need a quick sale, so therefore only asking for £57,500 ono.

So if you are looking for a stunning boat, that has lots of character, then this is for you.

If you're someone who loves the river Thames, then this is for you.

If you want a great life on the water, then this is for you.

Best to see her in person, to fully appreciate all of her charms. Feel free to call me for a chat, if you have any questions.
