A very special narrowboat and certainly one of the most admired in our central London marinas, Alchera is from the renowned boatyard of Tim Tyler.

Built in 1995, with a Kubota diesel engine and measuring 42ft, she is an extremely sound boat. Last out of the water in 2020, when she underwent blacking, replacement of anodes and a full survey. This revealed an excellent bill of health, showing a sound hull and no issues at all.

The interior has been completely re-fitted, creating a bright, contemporary style, incorporating all the home comforts you need for full time living aboard.

- Central heating that can be put on a timer; so no messy solid fuel although there is ample space to install a stove if required.

- Pump out toilet.

- USB port lights next to the bed for Netflix, etc!

- Full sized gas cooker.

- Full sized mains electricity fridge.

- Full wardrobe size, clothes storage area, plus plenty of other storage.

- T.V.

- Great size sofa bed for guests.

- Vinyl flooring throughout.

- Large Side Hatch for easy access

Alchera enjoys a fully transferable residential mooring, at Poplar Dock Marina which is the perfect location for getting into central London. Canary Wharf tube station is only a few minutes walk and then it’s a 15-minute direct journey to Green Park, Mayfair.

The marina is extremely safe and secure, with a manager on-site throughout the day and a security team at night.

The marina offers brilliant facilities:

- Shower/toilet block.

- Outside social space with seating, tables, lighting, bbq.

- Secure bike shed and optional car parking.

The marina is very friendly and has a great community feel and pets are welcome. 

Full survey can be shown on request.
