This narrow boat measuring 50 ft. x 6 ft.10 inches was originally built in 1991 and refurbished in 2014. Houseboat "Leonard" is currently moored in Poplar Dock Marina - just minutes from Canary Wharf. In 2014 the boat was completely stripped out and spray foam insulated. She had new double glazed windows installed throughout and was re-wired and re-plumbed as a brand-new project. Central heating is by an ALDE 3010 boiler which works from electric mains when moored in the residential mooring and gas LPG when cruising. There are radiators in each room. The Hull is epoxy painted which gives it a much better service life and fully insulated to retain the heat. The boat has beautiful oak cladding throughout, which was reclaimed from St. Paul's Cathedral, Westminster and there is Victorian strip flooring. The kitchen has reclaimed oak worktops with original brass fittings. The living area has a sofa, mounted LED television and a new 4KW wood burner which was installed in 2017. The bathroom features handmade Moroccan tiles and a cement encaustic tiled floor. There is a bespoke made-to-measure shower with remote controlled waste water pump and a towel radiator. The bedroom comes with a king size bed and memory foam mattress. It's a hydraulic storage bed that lifts up to provide ample storage space. Other storage is provided by the 1920s haberdashery unit that has also been fitted to the shape of the boat.Poplar Dock Marina has a day and night-watchman service and offers internet and residents' parking (at extra cost), and is only minutes from Canary Wharf Jubilee line, DLR and, soon, the Crossrail.
