Property description

"When you buy a boat like 'ROCK', you're taking on a piece of British maritime history, a very different kind of lifestyle and possibly one of the best and most iconic views of London from the River Thames." This is how the current owner of ROCK, a 1961 British built, steel, former wheat cargo vessel describes her own unique property. 'ROCK' is one of the few surviving and fully operational Medway Coasters left in the UK.

With an overall length of 28 metres and width of 6.5 metres, 'ROCK' provides a spacious and comfortable home flooded with light and with a unique position close to the heart of the City of London and plays a significant part in the on-going story of the River Thames.

ROCK' has 7 berths across 4 cabins one of which has an en-suite toilet and washbasin, an impressive wheelhouse, an upper studio office with wood burner and a large saloon with open plan galley and dining area for 8, bathroom/utility room, all with good standing headroom throughout the entire vessel. A large dry storage area and immense flat, open front deck area with sensational views of Tower Bridge and clear vistas both up and down the River Thames.

'ROCK' is connected to mains electricity, phone/internet, fresh water, black water pump- out facilities and a post box. In addition to the wood burning stove the boat is heated throughout by diesel-run boiler which runs all the radiators and heats the water. In the galley there is a fridge/freezer, dishwasher, double electric fan oven and a five burner propane gas hob.

Hermitage Moorings is a secure gated community with an on-site Moorings Manager, communal space for entertaining on the main pontoon, and includes the Port of London License as part of the monthly fee.

'ROCK' was purchased by the current owner Anne Lydiat Wainwright in 2002 and both she, and her late husband Chris Wainwright, were founder members of Hermitage, a cooperatively run and managed secure mooring for 19 live aboard vessels all of them with an historic provenance. Part of the ambition of Hermitage was to keep traditional river craft such as sailing barges, tugs and motor craft a part of the Wapping river landscape for the future.

In 2003 'ROCK' was taken to MSO in Brentford for a full refit. The bottom of the vessel was re-plated; a 1 metre steel skirt was added up above the waterline and bilge keels added to give greater stability in water. All portholes, rooflights, etc were replaced and a new steel roof was put on the lower Saloon.

The mooring fee for 'ROCK' is £511 pm on this much sought after, secure mooring at Hermitage. This includes mooring rights, access to mains sewage, and water plus Port of London License, access to community room on the pontoon, on-site Moorings Manager who acts as further security and support for resident's vessels.
