Broker's Comments


Three words sprang to mind when I first saw this boat: huge, cool and wow! This is a stunning and truly delightful Dutch barge in a great location. Built in 1906, she has very large living quarters with four double bedrooms and two bathrooms. There is also a huge second living space (what the owners call the 'party room'!) as well as the main open plan kitchen/living/dining room. The living space is arranged on two levels and could be easily re-configured to the new owner's specification.

Beautifully presented and stylish, this boat provides a unique lifestyle for families and professional sharers alike. She also has a splendid deck, great for outdoor entertaining.

Whilst she will happily sit on her mooring as a static home, she's also perfectly capable of cruising further afield and has a powerful (yet economical) fully functioning engine. She is ready to live on straight away but has enormous potential to be converted into two separate apartments or for the current space to be reconfigured to provide more bedrooms/bathrooms, etc; there are endless possibilities.

This is an ideal boat for the Central London live-aboard lifestyle, with reasonable running costs and easy access to shops, bars, restaurants, trains, buses and the motorway system. The marina has shore power and water on the pontoons and is quiet and secure (gated entry and all-round CCTV coverage). There is an optional underground car parking space.

There is an option for moving onto a private island in early January 2012 and it already has an attractive and secure mooring in West London. It has great amenities nearby with some excellent schools too, as well as beautiful parks such as Kew Gardens and Syon House in close proximity.

So, this would make a charming and unusual family home (there are good schools nearby) - or an ultra-cool pad for a single person or couple.
