The Big Boat is moored in a highly sought-after residential mooring in Surbiton on the River Thames, overlooking Hampton Court Park. This residential mooring run by Stewart Marine at Harts Boatyard, nestles behind the old Thames reservoirs making it a quiet place, an ideal retreat from the hectic pace of life. Sitting on deck with a glass of wine watching life on the river, it is hard to believe that you are so close to the centre of London.
Life on the river is fun. The location is brilliant. Far enough to feel as if you’re away from the world, but near enough to restaurants, pubs, transport links, entertainment and leisure to make life easy.
The Big Boat is 57 feet long and 11 feet wide and was built by Bluewater Boats Ltd, with the interior lined throughout in oak. There is full central heating as well as a wood/coal fired stove. The kitchen is well equipped with a gas oven and a 4 ring gas hob (bottled gas).
The living room has a huge sofa that seats 5 and is a double sofa bed.
The mooring is accessed from a timber floating pontoon that provides mains electricity and water point. Toilet waste pump out is done by boatyard staff without having to move the boat.
The mooring has an annual fee which includes a dedicated mooring space as well as boat residents’ parking.
