Premier Houseboats are pleased to present Rayleigh, a Humber Keel on a secure residential mooring, in need of work both internally and externally. Rayleigh has some lovely original features that can be incorporated to create a lovely home.

Rayleigh is a good size and the current layout boasts a double bedroom at either end, good sized saloon, kitchen and bathroom. There is a log burning stove in the saloon that would benefit from some maintenance but could be a valuable and cost affective addition to any new heating system.

She has good natural light coming from a mixture of portholes, windows and skylights. All the ceilings are of well fitted wood, and the flooring is also boards, which once sanded and varnished will look stunning. There is excellent head height through the majority of the boat, the only place where this isn't the case is when passing from the saloon to the second bedroom.

Internally Rayleigh will need updating, and would benefit from redecoration, a new kitchen and bathroom, a new boiler, and possible some rewiring. Plumbing is already in place together with radiators.

Externally the structure should have the surface rust removed and be repainted. There is a good amount of deck level outside space that can be utilised, and there is possibly an option to rebuild and extend the wheelhouse to create another living area and entrance.

The price has been reduced to reflect the fact there will probably be some work needed on the hull, and is such Rayleigh will be sold as seen.

As a project Rayleigh offers huge potential, and the opportunity to create your own characterful home on a secure residential mooring just a 15 minute walk from Strood station.
