Broker's Comments

One of the most pristine boats you could wish to view, in excellent order both inside and out and lovingly restored to an immaculate standard.

Built in 1909 and converted to live aboard in 1953, this wonderful example of a Dutch Tjalk provides a lovely characterful living space in a quiet marina which is just minutes walk from Canary Wharf tube station & DLR.

The mooring is a fully transferable residential mooring close to Canary Wharf.. This is a sought-after location with a friendly community, just 8 mins walk from Canary Wharf tube station & 4 mins from Blackwall DLR.

The marina has full facilities (showers, toilets, laundry room, post room) also benefiting from a car park, gated entry, CCTV & night time security guard.

Mooring transfer is subject to agreement with marina management and is subject to a transfer fee
