Broker's Comments

Boatshed Essex are delighted to present this converted ammunitions barge, which is unique in its presentation. The vessel looks to have been well cared for and loved by the current owners.

This barge has been attractively and tastefully refurbished giving a contemporary yet homely feel. The thoughtfully designed layout gives a warm spacious feeling with plenty of storage throughout.

You enter into the wheelhouse which is an idyllic space with plenty of light and attractive views. From here, down the steps to the large, open-plan fully equipped galley and saloon with under floor heating and cosy multi-fuel stove and plenty of additional space for family, friends and entertaining. From the galley access to the modern shower room and aft cosy double cabin.

Moving forward from the saloon through to the master suite (with built in bespoke wardrobes), an ensuite and the luxury of a double ended bath. Going forward, there is a spacious double cabin with plenty of stowage.

The interior space provides plenty of room for guests or as an Airbnb. Outside, there is acres of space for both storage and living, including both an aft deck and foredeck space which could be utilised for relaxing in a deck garden or for entertaining in the summer months.

When visiting the boat, there is the impression that no expense has been spared on investing in the overall enjoyable feeling of comfort, character and space that really makes this houseboat a gem. If you are looking for a unique home, holiday or investment opportunity, this barge is certainly an opportunity you should consider.
