A unique opportunity on the Regents Canal in central London with the sale of Dragonfly, a 33ft ex-Thames Inspection Launch on a highly sought after residential mooring within 5 minutes walk of Angel tube station.
This historic boat dates from pre 1948 (with riveted steel found in the engine bay) but was fully restored in 2011 with a new 5mm steel hull, solid oak flooring and walls, built-in sofa-bed, bespoke art-deco kitchen-galley area and tiled wet room with toilet, sink and shower. All brand new 240v and 12v electrics, plumbing, water tank and gas boiler for both gas cooker and hot water. The engine was also replaced with a single-cylinder Bukh, in keeping with the boats unique style (and sound!).BSS safety certificate until 2022.
The boat sits in the prime spot on Wenlock Basin, with spectacular views from the deck area up and down the Regents Canal including the neighbouring bird life, from the coot's nest just off the bow to the passing swans, cormorants and grey herons.
