Premier houseboats are pleased to present this ex Dutch harbour launch, which is currently on the hardstanding having been emptied out. This is a wonderful opportunity to own a classic boat to convert to a static houseboat, or a cruising boat. The Elve is a blank canvas for completion, having been originally built by Zuidam of Haarlem in 1929. Although there is no engine present, the prop is still in place, as is the chain steering, and she can therefore become a cruising boat once more, the shallow draft increases the opportunities for cruising, and the relatively low wheelhouse means that there will be little problem with low bridges. Accomodation comprises a large open space, a wheelhouse with panoramic views, and a smaller cabin. The hull was extensively replated in 2002. This is a wonderful opportunity to own a classic boat and restore it to past glories, viewing is recommended, and sensible offers will be considered. If you wish use this as a houseboat you will need to find alternative moorings.

Most residential moorings are secure areas with mains electric and water provided, mooring fees for a secure residential mooring tend to be between £1 and £1.20 per foot of length per week.
