Built in 1907, this beautiful barge has been our happy home for the last three years. It’s currently moored in London, but we’re looking to sell to move nearer to family – if you have any questions, or know anyone who may be interested, do get in touch.
A fantastic opportunity to acquire this fully functioning 65 ft. x 13.5 ft. Dutch Sailing Tjalk. Hoop Op Welvaart is currently moored at Chiswick Quay Marina, London, on a one year renewable residential mooring licence.
This well maintained barge was built-in 1907 with a flat bottom steel hull, has a DAF DDS75 6 cylinder 105 HP engine installed in 1997 and was last surveyed in December 2017.
The accommodation provides a wonderful open-plan kitchen/reception room accessed from the aft deck, one cabin, storage room, shower room and an array of storage facilities. There is fantastic potential to raise the ceiling height at the front of the boat (currently used as storage) to create an additional bedroom, study or living space - see floorplans. The barge benefits from an air sourced heat pump with two air vent units, mains electricity and mains sewage via a pump out system and holding tank.
Chiswick Quay Marina is located on the River Thames and is within walking distance of Chiswick (National Rail) station – 20 mins direct to Waterloo. For the motorist one parking space is available and the A4/M4 and A3/M3 are both easily accessible. Mooring charges are £700 per month. Electricity is metered. Dogs and Cats considered.
