Broker's Comments

39’ Luxemotor barge for sale on residential mooring in Hoxton, N1

This is that rare craft - a beautifully constructed barge with an affordable residential mooring in the heart of east London.

Built by best-in-class Piper Boats, the barge is moored on Gainsborough Wharf on the Regent’s canal in Hoxton, N1. It’s one of the most sought after moorings in London with a great sense of community - you’ll have your own area of wooden deck for seating and BBQs, a boat shed for storage and landscaped designed planter box. There is also state-of-the-art pump out facilities, bike racks, mailboxes and CCTV.

Its spacious 39’x11.5' dimensions and clever layout give the feeling of space. The shorter length means moorings fees are very affordable for this prime location - £549 a month. The mooring is fully residential and transferable.

From inside the wonderful hardwood wheelhouse you can enjoy the canal’s wildlife, with views beyond to historic warehouses and Shoreditch park.

The boat has been completely renovated inside with new appliances, upholstery and traditional brass fittings. The main living space is bright and airy with a sofa bed. And L shaped kitchen with antique teak surfaces conceals an abundance of storage. The bathroom is recently renovated with a stylish shower and water flushing toilet. The traditional curved bedroom comes with a variety of cupboards, wardrobes and under-bed storage. There is central heating throughout.

Technical: Built 2007, steel hull blacked and surveyed in 2019, 80hp Vetus engine, bow thrusters, navigation instruments, pump out toilet, BSS 2023. For the adventurous she is Category C and so a seaworthy craft.

This boat really is the whole package for an affordable floating London pad and she’s ready to move into.

These boat details are subject to contract.
