“Port “is an impeccably well designed, innovative and very contemporary houseboat currently moored at St Katherine’s Dock in the historic heart of London.  The residence has factored in the highest standards of fittings and fixtures and has been deigned to achieve a high level of sustainable systems to enhance her performance and to ensure airtightness, heat recovery, acoustic insulation and energy efficiency.


“Port” would make a wonderful central base for someone seeking a convenient location when in London. The impressive living environment aboard is an inspirational place to stay. Beyond the joy for the owner, Port will be an attraction for relatives or networks to be invited onboard.


With 190sq m of indoor living space and 120 sq. m of useable outdoor living and entertaining space, “Port” is an incredibly spacious floating home with three cabins, two with their own adjoining bathrooms, a spectacular principal bathroom spa area, a main cabin with dressing areas, a cosy cinema room or cigar room with projector connection and fittings for speakers. In the wheelhouse on upper deck you find a spacious kitchen-dinning area with a Boffi kitchen with a skylight and access to an outside dining area and a double height reception area with a focal point of a biothermal fireplace. Circulation areas and storage space throughout are generous and of the highest quality fit. “Port” is both filled with light yet quite private.


Port has a centralised MVHR control system securing “Ports” sustainable ventilation and heating systems. A smart home system for lighting control, audio and TV and other such smart appliances (from Gaggenau) can be selected to suit the needs and the buyers preference. All can be adjusted to be controlled remotely by smart phone or table interface.


The whole of “Port” has been minutely planned to be discrete, classic and of the highest calibre design and to create a lifestyle where heritage meets sustainability in an urban setting to enjoy the good urban life. Port is currently moored in the heart of the vibrant St Katherine’s Dock with easy access to tube and main line rail connections and easy travel or walking distance to The City and The West End as well as London’s Southbank with its cultural hub and restaurants.


Please note that houseboats are exempt from Stamp Duty and VAT making this an advantageous purchase for someone seeking such a spacious home in the most central location (buyers are advised to check with own advisors subject to such status).  “Port” also benefits from favourable mooring terms at St Katherine’s Dock. There is an allowance for the vessel to function as a holiday or short let opportunity in the marina. Estimated income figures are available on request.
