Built in 1913 as a Friese Klipper, a special gauge of vessel designed for specific routes and locks along the Friesian canals of Northern Holland, this boat is now converted to a wonderful houseboat situated on The City's only permanent mooring. The mooring provides well-managed river access for local people, including educational and recreational facilities, and is located within sight of Tower Bridge and provides berths for up to 20 historic vessels; this enables a mixture of live-aboard, recreational and visitor use. The boat herself comprises over 1,701 sq. ft. / 158 sq. m. of living space over two decks and enjoys a clean, modern feel throughout. The upper deck sitting room could serve a multitude of uses, while the 31 ft. by 18 ft. (9.6 m. by 5.5 m.) saloon has oak ship's timber flooring and a 'real-fuel' burning stove. Both of the 2 bedrooms benefit from fitted wardrobe space. A study/3rd bedroom, chic integrated kitchen and contemporary bathroom complete the accommodation. Hermitage Community Moorings is a co-operative which was created by a small, dedicated community and is the first development of its kind on the Thames for more than a generation. The members entirely self-funded the planning, design, management, construction, installation, and operation of this picturesque mooring. The infrastructure is designed to create a small, close-knit community of people committed to boat use and the preservation of historic craft. Part of its ambition is to ensure traditional river craft (e.g. sailing barges, tugs and motor craft) remain part of the Wapping landscape for future generations – and to create a local landmark that promotes Wapping’s historic links with the river. Last surveyed 2016; Mooring and maintenance fees: £5,448 per annum.
