Broker's Comments

This 1979 Cheoy Lee 43' Trawler has been fully converted into a spacious and unique houseboat and is being sold with residential mooring in Poplar Dock, near Canary Wharf. Bought in 2009 as a shell, this boat, with a massive 4.3m beam, has been innovatively transformed into a living space right in the heart of Canary Wharf, making this an unmissable opportunity for people who need to be close to The City or central London.

Thanks to the recent investment by the owner in a brand new flybridge and cockpit tonneau cover, this boat has masses of storage space with the flybridge doubling as a fully functioning loft even in winter.

The boat was recently surveyed and both 120hp, Ford-Lehman Diesels are low on hours for a boat of this age making this boat a more than capable cruiser when required. Inside, the boat is very well equipped and furnished with hot water calorifier, modern kitchen units and everything else you would expect from a boat that was only finished in 2011.

The marina has its own residents organisation as well as a laundry and shower block ashore, secure parking, CCTV and a security guard. A 5% transfer fee for the residential mooring is applicable. Current mooring fees are £7,200 p.a. and the mooring is renewable on an annual basis.

This Cheoy Lee 42 with London mooring has been personally photographed and viewed by Angus Rose of Boatshed London. Click here for contact details.
