If you are looking for an alternative lifestyle afloat the 'The Barge' is ideal as a spacious floating home which can be used on or off grid and is offered with a transferable Thames Mooring in Reading.

This Circa 1930's houseboat barge is a converted dredger first fitted out in 2015. There is a bright open plan upper wheelhouse saloon that opens out with bi-fold doors to the aft cockpit. The lower saloon is both light and bright with a spacious open plan feel to her galley.

The forward cabin has a large central island berth with plenty of wardrobe space and a good sized en-suite.

This houseboat barge can moved under her own power and be used off grid due to her new 5 large 360w solar panels with charge master, new Mastervolt Alpha III powerful 24v engine alternator connected to a huge 24v battery bank all new in 2023.
