A fantastic opportunity to acquire this fully functioning 65 ft. x 13.5 ft. Dutch Sailing Tjalk. Built in 1907, the boat has been our happy home for the last three years.

Hoop Op Welvaart is currently moored at Chiswick Quay Marina, London, on a one year renewable residential mooring licence.

This well maintained barge was built in 1907 with a flat bottom steel hull, has a DAF DDS75 6 cylinder 105 HP engine installed in 1997. Last surveyed in December 2017.

The accommodation provides a wonderful open-plan kitchen/reception room accessed from the aft deck, one cabin, storage room, shower room and an array of storage facilities. The barge benefits from an air sourced heat pump with two air vent units, mains electricity and mains sewage via a pump out system and holding tank.

Chiswick Quay Marina is located on the River Thames and is within walking distance of Chiswick (National Rail) station – 20 mins direct to Waterloo. For the motorist one parking space is available and the A4/M4 and A3/M3 are both easily accessible. Mooring charges are £692 per month. Electricity is metered.
