Port Medway Marina, cuxton Kent UK
Constructed in 1926 Beverley is a steel hulled luxemotor dutch barge measuring 18.84 metres in length with a beam of 3.39 metres and a draft of 1.10 metres. She was brought over from the Netherlands to Canvey Island, Essex a few years a go and is now moored on a quayside residential mooring at Port Medway Marina in kent where she has been used as a liveaboard. She is equipped with a fully functional DAF diesel engine giving her a cruising speed of 7 knots. We had the pleasure of sailing her over from Canvey Island to the medway two years ago with absolutely no problems, a pleasurable journey she made with ease. She has since been fully refurbished inside - stripped back to the metal, insulated, boarded out, a new floor fitted and full 240v (shoreline) electrical rewire including sockets and switches. As you step aboard she has a large rear sun deck area which is perfect in the summer with the views of the river and the swans, there is a large storage area via a hatch on the deck.The Large wheelhouse is traditional, bright and airy with seating either side with storage underneath. Wooden steps lead down from the wheelhouse into the open plan living area incorporating a fully fitted kicthen with a 4 hob gas cooker and oven. The kitchen has a fridge/freezer and lots of cupboard and drawer storage and plenty of worktop surfaces. The living area is complete with a modern multifuel burner which provides plenty of heat. The large L shaped sofa converts into a comfy king size bed. She comes fully furnished with wall mounted Flat screen TV, custom fitted window blinds giving it a bright modern look and is ready to move in and start your life aboard. There is a seperate storage room in the bow of the boat which used to be used as a cabin for 2 single beds, there is the option to revert to this however we have utilised this as a wardrobe area. There is a small shower / toilet room with a chemical toilet. The Marina has a modern shower and toilet block. The current mooring is next to a train station with easy train and road links to london and the surrounding areas and comes with plenty of parking. The sale includes the certified residential mooring. Price Is more negotiable if mooring is not needed. The last survey was done in october 2014 and all the work was carried out. The outside of the boat has had a repaint this summer. We have enjoyed living on Beverley.
