New BSS safety certificate
New Hull Survey
Edwin Dragon is a late 1970s all steel Thames cruiser built by Reading marine as part of their Thames hire fleet. 40’ long and 12’ at her widest, powered by a Bmc 1.8 with a hydraulic pump to turn the prop. Totally repainted inside and out (just finishing the outside now), she has a more modern layout to give best use of space. Please see the details below for pictures and further details.
•Asking price is £49k (negotiable. See woodburner and requires blacking)
•Spacious well deck. Space for storage benches or chairs.
•As you step in from the front deck, you enter the living room with steering station, washing machine, TV point and bureau/desk. Sofa folds down to a double bed.
•The fireplace is to the centre of the boat as you step down from the living room. The wood burner and flue had rusted badly. I decided to remove it rather than sell it as ‘needs attention’, this seemed to be the safer option against selling a stove that could be dangerous. Rather than just put a generic multi fuel stove in, I decided to leave installing a stove to the new owner. Big enough for a Rayburn or smaller unit. There are so many types out there and the hearth has a definite effect on the look and feel of your home. I am happy to discuss the asking price in reflection of this work that needs to be be completed.
•Fully equipped kitchen down port side, many deep cupboards give tons of storage. 12v shoreline fridge, fitted cooker with 4 ring hob, oven and separate grill, all LPG. Sink with mixer tap and drainer, solid oak worktops.
•Second bedroom/office. Space for single or bunk beds. We had bunk beds in there when our boys were younger but room is now empty. Storage cupboard with access to calorifier. This room would also make an good office space to provide a separate area if working from home.
•Next along, is the Bathroom with white and green tiles on two walls. 4×2 bath with shower over. Brand new towel radiator. Hand basin over cabinet with wavey edge doors and mirrored cabinet above. The ‘wet’ half of the room is tiled from floor to ceiling. Currently has a separating/composting toilet but a standard portapotti is available if you’d prefer that.
•Aft, the main bedroom uses the full width of boat, with lots of storage on shelves, under bed and hanging rail. 6×4 bed but could take a larger mattress. Inverter, LPG water heater (room sealed), solar controller and fuses can be found here too.
•All rooms have radiators (bathroom brand new)
•Two solar panels and a wind turbine to help keep you off grid.
•I have just completely repainted the inside of the boat, including sanding and sealing floors etc. The exterior has also been taken back to metal and repainted.
All the hard work is done, so all you need are your personal touches to make this boat your new home. Ideal for a working couple or small family to move into straight away.
