An opportunity to purchase this historic houseboat currently moored on arguably the best London mooring, at St. Katharine Docks. This wonderful 62 ft. Dutch barge features 2 cabins, modernised shower room, fully-fitted kitchen, small office and a large saloon with wood burning stove. The spacious decked area and wheelhouse offer amazing entertainment space. She is fitted with a diesel boiler providing effective central heating and hot water. Throughout the boat it is visibly obvious that she has been very well maintained with special attention paid to the interior woodwork, fittings and large bay windows. She is a fully working barge, built in 1898 and still motorised with original Gardner 6 litre engine and Borg Warner gears that were sought after by the manufacturer for their historical archive. In her early life she was used to transport reeds and agricultural products in the Netherlands and then was used by the Dutch Resistance during WWII. St. Katharine Docks offer a superb Central London location with excellent transport links. Tower Hill Underground and Tower Gateway DLR Stations are both just a 3 minute walk from the marina. Numerous restaurants and bars are now located within the marina offering residents and visitors a variety of options. Last Surveyed in April 2016 she is on an annually renewable leisure mooring. (Mooring fees approx. £13,500 per annum).Unless riverhomes notifies you in writing, we are only selling this vessel and NOT the mooring.
