Property description

MARINUS is an historically important Dutch trading Barge. In 2012 she was purchased by the vendors and subjected to a 3 year Surveyor-lead refit at SRF, a preeminent Dutch shipbuilding yard. The rebuild brought the hull up to an impeccable standard and new electrical, plumbing and marine systems were fitted, together with solid hardwood floors, doors and hatches. The engine was inspected and serviced. New masts and rigging were made and fitted. A final independent marine technical survey was undertaken which established MARINUS on the National List of compliant vessels, the KADASTRE. MARINUS was then sailed across the North Sea to her London berth at Hermitage Moorings. The bespoke cabinetry that had been designed and constructed to fill her cabins, bathrooms and galley were brought to her and painstakingly fitted over the next eighteen months. Unsurprisingly, the overall budget far exceeded her present asking price.

The final result is a glorious and spacious home in the centre of London within sight of Tower Bridge. MARINUS is one of the historic vessels that occupy Hermitage Moorings, a unique residential community of Doctors, Artists, Scientists and Politicians who cooperatively own and run the mooring. Access is through a private security gate off the Western end of Wapping High Street, alongside Hermitage Memorial Gardens. There is a Moorings Manager and a clubhouse usable by all residents for both communal and private use. A committee of residents runs the affairs of the mooring and all are encouraged to participate in this close-knit ‘village’ in the heart of London.

You board MARINUS from the port side deck and enter through the ‘Teahouse’ a spacious reception hall with fitted leather seating and large windows looking towards Tower Bridge. A door opposite leads out towards the large raised stern deck, a superb place for summer entertaining.
Reception
A stairway in grey painted steel with handrails and steps covered in leather leads down to the main reception room with its floor in rich nut brown merbau timber. This is a light-filled room with several opening roof lights and multiple large brass portholes. There is a magnificent Dutch ceramic wood burning ‘Tigchelkachels’ which adds to the cosiness.
Study
Going aft is the fitted study with iroko bookcases and stacked campaign drawer flights. A pull down king-size bed on gas struts is hidden behind the polished hardwood panelling. A privacy wall is extendible to create a guest room.
Cloakroom
Opposite is a cloakroom with wc, hand basin and hidden behind an iroko door is a corian lined shower.
Engine Room
A corridor leads past the engine room with its large storage space.
Stern Kitchen and Diningspace
The preparation area is a tour de force in stainless steel and iroko, which wraps around the stern of the ship. The dining table, included in the sale, comfortably seats 8 and is a representation of a cargo hatch built in ebony and iroko. Light floods into this part of the ship through 3 large opening windows, 4 portholes and an opening ceiling lantern light.
Wheelhouse
Steps lead up to the wheelhouse that is also accessed from deck level on both sides. Here fitted seating provides four people with a panoramic view up the river towards Tower Bridge and The Shard.
Owners’ Cabin
Going forward from the living room access is gained to the owners’ cabin. There is a fitted king-size captain’s bed, a total of no less than 23 fitted drawers and extensive cupboard and hanging space all finished in polished figured sapele wood.
The ensuite shower room is fitted out in teak with bespoke cabinetry. The large walk-in shower is lined in corian and has fitted teak seating. There is a Hansgroherain shower.

Utility Room and Gym
Beyond the master cabin is a multi purpose area currently used as a utility room and gym. It was designed to provide access from both the principal accommodation and the forward guest/staff suite, while ensuring total privacy for each. This area could easily be converted to a nursery.
Self-Contained Guest/Staff Suite
Going forward is the self-contained guest/staff suite, which includes a king-size drop down bed hidden behind hardwood panelling, matching the extensive hanging and storage spaces, a fully equipped kitchen with solid hardwood counter and further ample sitting and dining space. A cinema screen pulls down from the ceiling and a projector and sound system are housed in bespoke cabinets. This equipment is included in the sale.
Lobby
A small lobby, which is fitted with coat hooks above a curved teak bench, has stairs leading up to the separate entrance to this suite and to the shower room with a corian lined walk in shower and bespoke cabinetry.
Domestic Servies
Electric Service is provided by two independent shore lines each of 32 amps providing ample power and lighting to the front and stern accommodations. The full installation was designed and fitted new during the rebuild. Lighting is largely LED and is extensively controllable. A back up 10 Kw diesel generator provides power and light when cruising

Water is supplied from a standpipe connection directly beside the ship. On board storage of 3 tonnes typically provides for three weeks usage.

Waste The Mooring is connected directly to mains sewage and a pump out is provided alongside the ship for its exclusive use
