Bluebell VIII is for sale with the option to take over her highly sought after, fully transferable, residential mooring at Limehouse marina.

Successfully surveyed in November 2022 and re-blacked in November 2023, she has been completely refurbished internally by her current owners over the past 18 months who are only selling due to relocation abroad.

From her spacious, semi-traditional rear deck with it’s canopy and built in seating with cushions, going below one enters her fully equipped galley. Her current owners regularly work from home using the fold out table which doubles as a dining table in the saloon. A sofa bed allows guests to stay onboard and the powerful multifuel stove also heats a separate radiator. Her new bathroom is equipped with a walk-in shower and cassette w.c.

There is hanging space and further storage in the bedroom and the full width double bed has a mattress which folds into thirds. The bed base then cleverly separates into two halves, giving a central passageway to access the bow of the boat. On the bow deck, protected by it’s cratch cover, is ample space to sit and enjoy the wonderful marina views.

Bluebell VIII is a well maintained and genuine “turnkey” boat ready to move straight onboard.
