Nausicaa is a truly fabulous widebeam barge houseboat with a highly sought after, fully transferable, residential mooring at Aquavista’s Poplar Marina next to Canary Wharf.
Offering exceptional living space thanks to her 12’ 9” beam, she has been completely refurbished, at considerable expense and to a high standard, by her current owners. They have also maintained her correctly and she was reblacked with two coat epoxy in 2022.
The bow features a foredeck and twin bow doors (including cat flap) giving unusually easy access. The entrance doubles as a cloakroom with built in shelves, storage and shoe rack. Past this area is the fully fitted and very comprehensively equipped galley complete with four burner hob, oven, dishwasher, butler sink and built in wine rack. The galley is notable for exceptional storage and worktop space which extends to a breakfast bar. Oak flooring is fitted throughout.
She has been very intelligently configured with great attention placed on the quality of finish and fittings. The huge saloon is a wonderfully light space in which to entertain or relax and could easily accommodate a desk area for couples both working from home and needing their own space during working hours.
In addition to radiator heating, the saloon also has an extremely smart, high output, programmable pellet burning stove. In addition to radiator heating, the saloon also has an extremely smart, high output, programmable pellet burning stove. This provides greater heat efficiency and is more environmentally friendly and lower maintenance than a traditional wood burning stove.
Nausicaa’s bathroom is simply stunning with walk in shower, designer basin, high end compost toilet (the plumbing has been purposely left in place should her new owner wish to revert to a pump out configuration) and super large, heated towel rail/radiator.
Her bedroom is the largest of any boat we have placed on the market in recent times at Poplar marina! Indeed, the space could be remodelled, if required, to add a separate single or bunk bedroom without undue compromise to the master bedroom. Bedroom storage is further increased by a highly useful storeroom, located to the right as one exits from the bedroom onto the stern deck.
Last, but arguably her most fabulous feature, particularly in the summer months, is her enormous and fully useable deck space. Unlike most widebeams whose roof curvature precludes use as a deck area, Nausicaa’s roof enjoys a much flatter profile and effectively provides a fully useable outdoor space, far larger than any typical wide beam’s rear deck. Perfect for enjoying the spectacular marina views with friends and Canary Wharf’s breathtaking skyline.
In summary, Nausicaa is an exceptional London houseboat, ready to move onboard immediately and viewing is essential to fully appreciate her space, quality, design and location.
