Newhaven East Sussex UK|
Rare opportunity to purchase a very unique and different floating home. Up for sale is our amazing house boat.
She is a watercraft freefall lifeboat 34ft length and 12ft beam. Fully converted to a livaboard consisting of living room and kitchen area containing full size oven and induction hobs, fridge/freezer, sink, hot and cold water via a mixer tap, led lighting, engineered oak wood flooring, howdends gloss grey kitchen. Large bathroom with enclosed shower unit and rainfall shower, very large hatch above which is perfect for open air showers, there is also a smaller hatch within the hatch. Sink on top of cupboard unit again hot and cold water via mixer tap, toilet and saniflow macerator, salamander water pump, 50l immersion heater. Double bedroom with full size double bed raised off the floor for storage underneath, Large cupboard at the front of the bed for more storage, approx 300l fresh water tank under bed, also large hatch above bed for star gazing. All windows, potholes and port lights open and the most are all vetus stainless steel. Plenty of plug sockets throughout some with USB port on. We also have a large roof deck on top to enjoy the sunny days. I'm sure there is so much more so please don't hesitate to ask any questions.
We have removed some of the insulation out as we wanted to create more head room and now have 6ft throughout. There is still approximately 1ft of insulation all around the boat and this in turn keeps the boat very very warm even through the coldest of months (our neighbours all moan about the winter but we toasty inside are boat) we currently just use a couple of small oil filled radiators for heat as this is all we need and even then they only get switched on in the depths of winter.
The boat has a Sabb watercooled engine with very limited hrs on. We disconnected the hydraulic steering pipes as we wanted are bed where the captains seat would be. We never planned to take her out so was no issue for us but I'm sure with a little bit of work you could easily get her sailing again.
This boat really must be seen to be appreciated I genuinely believe that this is quite possibly the most space that you will get from a boat of this size. The boat itself is very unique and we receive much praise and attention from walkers that overlook from the nature reserve opposite. Internally the boat is more like a one bedroom flat than a boat. We have everything that anyone would have in a house plus the added bonus of waking up to beautiful mornings floating on the river with the resident swans and ducks that often come and visit us.
Currently my fiancee and I both live aboard with our two cats and we have plenty of space.
We would also be happy to leave the boat furnished as many of items bought are bespoke and made for the boat.
Boat resides on a tidal residential mooring on the outskirts of Newhaven (short drive to nearby towns Brighton and lewes) and mooring would be transferable to new owner. We currently also rent a 20ft shipping container onsite which also would be available for rent. Moorings them selves are very quiet with approximately 15 other liverboards here and a nice little community. Moorings are gated and access via a key fob, with cctv and plenty of parking.
Again I'm sure there is a million and one things I have left out so please do not hesitate to contact me with any questions.
