Rare opportunity to own the most beautifully designed and highly specified canal boat we have ever put on the market at Aquavista Limehouse.

This Narrow Dutch Barge was built by the renowned David Thomas yard at Braunston Marina and has been based at Limehouse since new. Turning heads wherever she cruises, she has been maintained to the highest standards by her two owners and comes with a huge history file.

In anticipation of her sale she was blackened, fitted with new leisure batteries and surveyed (zero structural issues) in April 2021. The wooden wheelhouse, which is collapsible allowing the boat to pass under even very low bridges, was almost entirely rebuilt by a woodworking craftsman in 2020. The boat can be steered from the stern tiller or, in bad weather, from the wheel in the wheelhouse. 

This is a boat for boaters as well as providing comfortable accommodation - with its powerful engine and solid construction, the current owners have taken her up the Thames to Oxford, on the Wey to Guildford, the Stort into Essex, and on numerous occasions up and down the tidal Thames and along the London canal and river network. 

Internally she offers an extremely spacious, light, open plan living area with fully equipped kitchen providing a fabulous space to entertain, relax or work. Fitted storage space throughout, a lovely double bedroom, seperate bathroom including shower, bath and toilet, plus the interior flexibility to sleep up to five people in beds.

Complete with fully transferable leisure mooring in the highly sought after Aquavista Limehouse Marina, protected by security gate access and the benefits of onshore marina facilities including laundry room and shower/wc suites.
