Property Description

Full description

This charming steel hulled, British built Tug was constructed in 1915 and saw many years active service on the waterways of the West Country until the late 1960s. Since then, having initially been converted to a long range pleasure craft, she was fully refitted in 2005 and is now presented in excellent condition. Although she now enjoys many creature comforts such as a wood burning stove, she remains capable of the lengthy journeys she once enjoyed. The accommodation comprises nearly 900 sq. ft. / 85 sq. m. of internal space which includes atmospheric upper and lower deck saloons with wood panelling and a wood burning stove to the lower, two lavish bedrooms and a third bedroom/study, a modern bathroom with separate toilet, utility room, aft end deck space and an additional upper deck area. Located in a secure, gated mooring adjacent to the resurgent Canary Wharf, this could be an ideal opportunity for a pied-à-terre or more permanent home on the edge of The City, but within the heart of an increasingly popular business district. Restaurants, cafés and bars are numerous and situated close by, as are transport options which include DLR services from Blackwall station west towards Tower Hill and Bank or east towards London City Airport and Riverbus Services from Canary Wharf west towards Westminster and The South Bank, or east towards historic Greenwich. Last surveyed 2011.

Specifications: twin Ford Sabre diesel engines installed in 1980; 8 ft. draft; 1,456 l. fuel tank; 2,273 l. water tank; beam width 13.11 ft. (4 m.), length 65 ft. / 19.50 m.; depth 7.74 ft. / 2.36 m.: Furuno radar; Shipmate VHF.
