Bishops Stortford Hertfordshire UK
This is a stunning recently converted historic dutch motor Tjalk, originally built in 1907.
There is the option to buy (for a negotiated price) on a beautiful private mooring with parking in Bishop's Stortford, 10 minuets from train station on the London Cambridge line and Stansted airport line. It's an easy walk to town where there are lots of pubs, cafes, shops and restaurants.
We've lovingly restored the boat over the past few years, trying to retain the old world charm of it while also bringing in the comforts of the modern world. It has a large open plan living room and kitchen with full sized LPG cooker, and plenty of room to add a dining table.
The addition of a removable sky hatch has added light and airiness.
There is full standing headroom throughout with the lowest point being 6f 2inches.
The bathroom has a full size shower, 230v washing machine and pump out toilet.
Extensive work has been carried out including a total refit inside, extending the cabin bedroom and mahogany refit, new reconditioned engine, new cratch cover, extensive replating of the hull, new bathroom and much more.
Hull was surveyed 4 years ago, and the boat has a full BSS certificate.
There is a large bedroom for 2, and 2 sofa beds in the main cabin.
It's a pleasure to cruise and easy to maneuver. This is a very eye catching and unique boat with a homely feel inside.
