Broker's Comments

Boatshed London are delighted to offer this fantastic Colecraft Wide Beam for sale with Limehouse residential mooring.

Built in 2013 and fitted out by the current owner to a very high spec, this 57ft x 12ft wide beam is the deep hull version which gives the boat an enormous feeling of extra space over a standard hull. 7ft headroom throughout and skylights in the roof elevate this boat to make it a fabulous floating home in one of London's most desirable marinas.

Laid out with one double cabin at the bow which has a great dressing area/wardrobe and moving aft to a large storage cupboard with washing machine, the bathroom with good sized shower and elsan loo and then the open plan living area and galley at the stern. The boat has multi fuel stove and central heating.

As you would expect from someone who actually built the boat themselves, it has been impeccably maintained throughout its lifetime and that is evident from stepping on board through to examining the engine bay and electrics. The boat was epoxied at new and blacked in 2018 so is not due to be lifted for another three years. This really is one to move straight onto.

Limehouse Basin is a vibrant community of boaters with excellent transport links to central London and walking distance to Canary Wharf. There is a laundry and shower block and the location on the river Thames and at the end of the Regent's Canal and River Lea makes this a great place to start an adventure from.

This boat is sold with a transferable residential mooring (5% transfer fee) and this is the only wide beam currently for sale in the marina with a full residential license. In addition, this boat is zero rated for VAT and as a result, the annual mooring fees are approx £7,700, equivalent to a 40ft narrowboat in the same marina.

Viewing is highly recommended and a quick look around the market for similar boats in this marina really shows what a great deal this is for someone looking to start a life afloat with a fabulous boat and residential mooring.

These boat details are subject to contract.
