About this Humber Barge 60ft


Boatshed Medway are delighted to present this Humber Keel Barge which used to be the famous Greenwich Bookboat.

The Bookboat sailed into Greenwich in the summer of 1978. She then become a favorite destination for children for the next 20-odd years. The Bookboat was the only specialist children’s bookshop south of the river and probably the only floating children’s bookshop in the world. And for its size it packed quite a punch - by 1984 it was carrying over 7,000 titles! She sadly had to close in the early 90's due to Health & Safety laws and a few years later she was purchased by the current owners who converted her into the 2 bed liveaboard she is today.

This lovely vessel is stacked in history and makes a very good sized 2 bedroom home on the water. She has had a lot of work carried out and plating. She now has a favourable current survey too. The residential mooring she currently occupies can be taken over subject to the marina's approval. The current owners are paying around £300 per month. She is located close to the historic town of Rochester in Kent. There is plenty of parking and this barge benefits from her own private terrace adjacent.

Note: Offers on the asking price may be considered. These boat details are subject to contract.
