Property Description

Full description

This is a great opportunity to buy "Maxime" - a Luxe Motor barge built in Holland in 1931 and converted in 1985. It's on a permanent residential mooring in Wapping. The current owners have restored the exterior to a level worthy of its historic importance and updated the former cargo hold to create a comfortable interior. In recognition of this, Maxime was one of 20 barges selected to take part in the Queen's Diamond Jubilee pageant in June 2012 and won Best Classic Barge at the 2012 rally of the DBA - Dutch Barge Association.

The boat's wheel house has views of Tower Bridge. In the main section there's a bright reception room with open plan kitchen, main bedroom and bathroom. There is also a further self-contained bedroom with en suite facilities and storage. Length: 23.1m, Beam: 4.5 m, Draft: 1.2m, Engine: DAF 575.

Hermitage Community Moorings is a co-operative which owns and operates a tidal mooring on the Thames at Hermitage Wharf, Wapping. The mooring provides berths for up to 19 vessels, with a mixture of live-aboard and visitor use. HCM provides well-managed river access for local people, including educational and recreational facilities, along with good security. The infrastructure is designed to create a small, close-knit community of people committed to boat use and the preservation of historic craft. There are fantastic facilities available to berth holders including communal showers and access to Pier House, with amazing river views, which is available for private use.

Part of HCM's ambition is to ensure traditional river craft (e.g. sailing barges, tugs and motor craft) remain part of the Wapping landscape for future generations. Also to create a local landmark that promotes Wapping's historic links with the river.
