Lambon Fabrications – Dutch Barge Replica for sale

£ 249,500Vat Exempt 2013
South West, Tewkesbury, United Kingdom
Alchemy: Newly completed Dutch Barge replica, fitted out to the highest standard by a professional cabinet maker. The hull was commissioned in 2013 and we moved aboard a couple of years ago on, whilst completing the build. Alchemy is currently moored at the beautiful and sought after Tewkesbury Marina and the mooring is available with the boat subject to interview.
Alchemy displays an innovative and unique design with many outstanding features that present the boat in a beautiful and thought provoking manner. These include a large collapsable wheel house, assisted by gas struts and a complete retractable roof in the form of a tambour. This is ideal for catching some sun whilst preparing breakfast on summer mornings as well as creating a stunning slatted effect in its closed position. Other features include sliding doors for space saving solutions and tambour units in the rear cabin to hide white goods.
Examples of fine cabinet making mixed with inspiring engineering, that are unique to Alchemy, can be seen throughout this build. These include a sunburst veneer pattern on the dining table and a complicated, compound curving wall that displays itself in both the bathroom and main living space. These features are balanced beautifully with a mix of soft textiles throughout. The main two timbers that have been selected for this build are English Walnut and Oak.
From Alchemy’s use of old snooker table slate for her kitchen worktops to old stained glass inlayed in her portholes, she is truly one of a kind!
Alchemy’s technical info:
Category D Replica Dutch barge.
Central heating powered by pressure jet boiler from ‘Bubble’, heating: 5 x finrad radiators (3 in saloon and 2 in master bedroom) that are discreetly concealed with radiator boxing. 1 heated towel rail in bathroom (plus underfloor heating in bathroom),1 colosseum radiator in wheelhouse and 1 colosseum radiator in aft cabin. Heating can be set on a timer and a thermostat allows for compete temperature control.
A 2.5kw wood burning multi fuel stove that is perfect to give extra heat without throwing out too much heat and having to open windows in order to have the fire lit!
Victron inverter charger.
4 x batteries 100 amp 20 hour leisure batteries, charged through the Victron inverter charger. Inverter charger charges batteries to provide 12V (DC). When under steam inverter charger draws power from batteries and inverts 12V into 230V (AC) and in turn charges the batteries continually whilst under steam.
A large calorifier that is heated by either the boiler, immersion heater, or from the 120hp Vetus engine whilst under steam.
All the major electric and plumbing solutions were carried out by professional and specialist marine company Loomtech: AC and DC wiring with 12V and 230V. Ring of mains socket using arctic blue cable spec.
LED spotlights throughout the boat, wired on different looms to allow for a good range in lighting choice.
Windlass at bow, anchor can be manually or electrically let down.
Bow thruster helps with tricky manoeuvres and has own battery in bow locker.
Camera on the bow with a screen on the helm to give enhanced vision when mooring/entering locks etc.
The aft decking is laid with permateak, a high quality synthetic decking material that looks great and doesn’t weather like teak.
Gas locker outside of wheelhouse, houses 2 large gas bottles for the oven.
In the galley: a Belfast sink, a gas standard size oven with jobs, grill and main oven and fridge included in sale.
In the aft cabin: a tumble dryer/washing machine and a freezer, hidden with beautiful tambour units.
The 3 water tanks are located under the bed and behind the headboard in master cabin, to save space.
The bathroom is tiled with travertine tiles and electrical underfloor heating has been laid in the bathroom for toasty feet in the colder months.
The large holding tank is located in the engine room and is emptied once a month with regular month via pump out.
Key notes for consideration: Alchemy was recently dry docked and the hull was blacked to a high standard in May 2017. Anodes still have a few years on them. A hull survey was carried out at the same time.

Dutch Barge – Luxemotor for sale

£ 180,000Vat Exempt 1922
Thames Valley, London, United Kingdom
For sale to one very lucky owner is what we believe to be one of the nicest boats on the Thames 🙂 A perfect live aboard vessel or cruising barge for 1-5 people and completely unlike anything else on the market.
Our Barge is to be sold on transferable moorings in the beautiful area of Hampton, Greater London.
The area is known for being an easy commute in to London but with a quaint village feel. It has great shops and restaurants, a huge royal park with free roaming deer, it’s a short walk to Hampton Court Palace and has wonderful train and bus links to the rest of London. The moorings are £650 pcm including electricity and water. The boat is easy to access on its jetty and has superb views of the river.
‘Twee Gebroeders’ combines the history of a classic barge (originally a fruit and veg transporter around Amsterdam) we brought her over from Holland ourselves and had the entire Hull over-plated with brand new, blasted and primed 6mm steel then coated in epoxy paint (2015) so you have all the beauty and history of an actual original ship but the security of a brand new hull underneath you for less then the of a cost of a new-build replica. The welding was carried out to exceptional standards and we have photographs and receipts of everything that was done before the hull was signed off to British standards by surveyors for our insurance company.
She has a great layout that’s also rather rare. The main accommodation starts at the bow and goes 3/4 of the way towards the stern… but she also has a self contained wheelhouse and aft cabin that is accessed through a completely separate external door, making the boat perfect for somebody who works from home and needs a studio/office, also would be a great annex for a teenager to hide away in or perhaps even a self contained unit to use for air bnb. (Presently being used as an office space and music room where singing lessons take place daily and as an extra place to put guests- a small but immensely pretty and useful space that even has a fun home cinema included!).
Layout:
Starting at the bow of the boat there is a storage locker for ropes, coal and boaty-bits and also access to the bow thruster making this boat even easier to manoeuvre and moor up.
Next is the front ‘garden’ with a sweet chill out area with a table and chairs that’s perfect for having a glass of wine overlooking the river of an evening

*Beautiful vintage brass porthole windows

She has a brand new boat safety certificate and is ready to be licensed by the new owner and cruised off into the sunset 🙂
A big enough boat to live in very happily but also a small enough craft that she can be easily cruised by 1 or 2 people (and without needing a skippers license), the engine runs beautifully and she’s extremely easy to manuvre- an absolute pleasure to take out on a sunny day, (or just lounge around in on the moorings!)
We’ve loved every minute of being on this boat, its been a joy to restore her inside and out but as one of us is a 3rd generation boat-builder and the other one is a 2nd generation property renovator… we’re fixer uppers by nature and are ready for our next project! We hope The elegant external shape, quality metal work and unique and stylish interior will make a wonderful home or retreat to a single person or small family.
We hope she will find her new owners soon and will make them as happy as she’s made us.
Sacha and Ben Heath 🙂
