Full description

Tenure: Freehold

We gladly offer this rare opportunity to cash buyers to fully own a residential mooring and houseboat on the Thames!  This one bedroom boat and mooring is on a marina which is owned by its residents, for its residents, and as such the marina offers very low mooring fees and superb long-term freehold security.

Situated on the tidal Thames in the borough of Richmond, this 31ft converted lifeboat enjoys beautiful 360 degree views from its picturesque end-of-pontoon location.  Well presented and well maintained, the interior was built by its carpenter owner with an emphasis on the practicalities of everyday living and comfort. Despite its compact size, the boat boasts ample storage space. Situated by an island nature reserve and opposite Richmond's Old Deer Park, it is surrounded by a stunning variety of wildlife and a landscape which changes with the tide.

The layout consists of wheelhouse/lounge, kitchen and bedroom with en suite shower/toilet.  The boat has mains electricity, and is wired for phone and internet.  It uses bottled gas for cooking and hot water, and has a multifuel stove for winter heating.  The toilet is connected to the marina's fully automatic sewage system. The boat is currently “non-going” but could be converted back again with some work. Included in the sale is “Merry Minutes”, a 15ft launch with inboard diesel motor and removable tent roof.

The marina is owned by its residents through a limited company, which functions as a co-operative. Moorings, which are pontoon based, are commensurate with a share ownership in the company proportional to the size of craft.  The purchase includes the 31ft boat and its associated shares in the company which represent the boat's mooring space. 

There is no stamp duty land tax payable, and unlike other marinas, there is no “buyer's premium” to pay. 

Marina fees are currently £90 a month and cover maintenance costs, water supply and PLA tax. Council Tax, which for boats is band A, currently costs £1,054.93 annually.

The property is available for immediate occupancy.

This offer is not part of a chain and is open to CASH BUYERS ONLY.
