Launching is a way to find affordable houses in Londontime buyers.
Tim Brewster lived on a 58-foot narrow boat in the Wenlock Basin, N1, Regent's Canal for eight years.
"It seems to me that this is the best way to get on the property ladder, with parking fees and charges similar to what I bought an apartment in a new development project, and Brewster says he is now a carpenter at lostford.
The narrow boats are relatively cheap to buy, but as their name suggests, they are only 7ft wide and perfect for people who are particularly neat and tidy.
Couples who need their own space, or families with cats, dogs and utensils, should not apply.
"I like it," Brewster said . ".
"When the swan woke up outside the window, it was very calm, because there was an entrance telephone system in the Wenlock Basin, so it was very safe.
"It took him a year to travel on the canal to York, Wales and Bristol, but he just sold his boat for 50,000, this will give him a large deposit for an apartment or house.
Currell, the real estate agent who sold the ship for him, is also selling Clive Haydn's 45-foot narrow boat, a lead balloon moored in the same basin.
This is a double sleeper, open-
Plan the kitchen and salon area for £ 54,950.
"I like to live on a boat, but I really need more space --
For example, I have to keep my book at work, "says Haydn, a university lecturer who has owned the ship for five years.
He had owned a boat in the Winlock basin for 12 years, and he lived in an apartment in London with his wife on weekends.
When his marriage broke down, he bought a bigger ship and moved into the basin permanently.
"One of its great advantages is the people.
"Everyone is very supportive and friendly and there will always be people going to the bar," he said . ".
"The price of the boat is also very good --
You couldn't find the garage for 55,000.
"Haydn pays around £ 3,800 a year for mooring and several hundred pounds for electricity and Calor gas.
"I have a chemical toilet and I emptied it in a nearby bathroom, but someone who has to pump water --
"In order to do so, they had to get the boat through several locks," he said . ".
Another ship for sale in London is Amali, a very beautiful 43-foot motor yacht, moored at St Catherine's Wharf.
Built in 1992, the ship has a cedar and teak hull and the cottage has mahogany paneling and a castingiron wood-
Burning stove and hand made Delft-like basins.
Equipped with satellite navigation and autopilot for crossover
The Amali hotel has two double and three single berths, a gas stove and a central heating system.
The city and country group sold her for £ 180,000.
The six-month parking fee is 1,778, with an additional VAT.
The latest ship House variety is more "home" than "boat "--
It doesn't even have an engine.
The 60ft Optimum manufactured by Waterspace is made of fiberglass, steel and concrete and is designed for modern life.
Nil Baker, director of Waterspace, explained: "We want to provide a home on the water with the highest standards focused on comfort, space, safety and quality.
"The idea came when Baker, who was a real estate developer at the time, wanted to buy a floating show apartment for him at a site on the canal north of London.
"I couldn't find anything suitable and the idea came from there," he said . ". These 16ft-
Wide boats are much more expensive and cost £ 249,000, but they offer a lot more room to stay and the maintenance is also very low, unlike narrow boats that need to be repainted from the water every five years or so.
Nigel Bernie was the first person to buy one as a London pieda-terre;
He plans to park his yacht outside a new development in the riverside district of Wandsworth, southwest London.
In this development, more than 1,000 square feet of flats of the same size will cost twice as much.
"In fact, I don't like boats at all.
"I don't sail, but I do like water," Burney said . ".
"I met a director of the company at the cocktail party, which sounds like a good idea.
I 've been looking for ways to have something in London because I need to go to London in a week.
Burney runs stock cube, an online financial analysis company, who lives in Oxfordshire with his wife and four children.
"When the company described it to me, I thought it would be fun and not spend a lot of money, but I never imagined it would be.
It's not like a boat at all, it's more like a building that happens to be on the water.
"While the ship doesn't have an engine, it can be moved by a tugboat so you can move your home around and even across the strait.
The top deck is open and has a large wood
The living space of the floor and the spacious seating area are curved at the stern.
Huge windows around the room with plenty of light and good ventilation.
Next to the spiral staircase on the roof terrace is a smart kitchen with all the mod cons-
Electric oven, stove, washing machine, sink.
On the lower floor you can have one, two or three bedrooms and a smart bathroom with ceramic floor and/or bathroom
Suite shower.
"One of the advantages of the ship is that you can change it easily," Nigel said.
My boat will have 2 bedrooms and 2 bathrooms, but when our kids are bigger, we can easily have them if we want more bedrooms.
"The ideal way is to transport electricity and sewage into a huge tank and pump it into the Thames;
It has full air conditioning and very good insulation.
The old narrow boat may require a more modest lifestyle, loading restrictions on power supply (
When you try a hairdryer at the same time as the fan heater, the blowout is not unknown)
, And remember to fill the water tank of the ship with a hose often, and remove the ship from the berth, pump it out every four to six weeks.
But for some, this is the fun and charm of it.
When you wake up in the morning with a star
Old coot chicks chirping outside the hull, or seeing a heron walking around the towel, then all the little troubles seem to be worth it.
From the bow to the stern, many narrow ships are purchased in cash, but Barclays Marine finance can offer Marine mortgages up to 80 in 10 years.
To use inland waterways, you must present a BWB cruise permit of approximately £ 20 to £ 30 per year.
In order to obtain this qualification, you will need a certificate of insurance and vessel safety.
If you do not move your boat other than pump out in the basin or dock, or use the tidal part of the Thames from tintington to the estuary, you do not need a license.
Insurance can be obtained from the Marine Insurance Company, and the cost of insurance for £ 50 is about £ 130
Footer up to £ 1,200 for larger seas
Dutch barge.
Depending on the location and facilities, the parking fee varies, possibly 90 to 214.
