Featured Boat: A Terrific 18m Luxemotor Euroship Dutch Barge
Built in 2007-8, this Euroships design Luxemotor lies on a residential mooring in a small, private marina just off the Thames in West London. She represents a great combination of traditional and contemporary design and fit-out and still has that ‘new boat’ feel.
She is truly immaculate inside and out, built to exacting standards by the current owner (who is a boatbuilder of the 'craftsman' type) using high quality materials. Steps leading forward from the large, bright wheelhouse lead down to the spacious open plan saloon and galley, with the master suite forward. Steps aft of the wheelhouse lead to the second cabin and bathroom. There is plenty of storage space throughout – including a good-sized wardrobe unit. There’s even a small study area in the saloon.
This is an ideal boat for the Central London live-aboard lifestyle, with reasonable running costs and easy access to shops, bars, restaurants, trains, buses and the motorway system; alternatively, she would be equally at home cruising the canals and rivers. The marina is quiet and secure (gated entry and all-round CCTV coverage) and has an optional underground car parking space.
