The barge was built in 1926 as a cargo vessel, working the shores of the East Coast of Britain for 51 years, initially under sail alone, and later, from 1958 as a motor barge. She came out of trade service in 1977 and has been privately owned since

Length on deck is 86 ft. with an 18.5 ft. beam.

This fabulous boat is currently used as a luxury floating home, offering a very spacious reception / living area, modern, fully-fitted galley, four well-appointed bedrooms and one and a half bathrooms

All fixtures and fittings are contemporary but a wealth of original features have been retained

The boat is currently moored in Limehouse Basin Marina which is situated in an excellent location between Canary Wharf and The City. Limehouse DLR Station is minutes from the dock with direct trains to Tower Hill Gateway and Bank. Canary Wharf is just a short walk from the marina where you will find the Jubilee Line

The barge was recently used in the making of Christopher Nolan’s latest Hollywood blockbuster movie ”Dunkirk’, due for release in cinemas on 21st July.
