Here is some of her history:
The Humber Keel Barge "Whitcliffe" was built by Dunstones in 1924 and was purchased and converted by her present owners 5 years ago. The bottom of the hull was overplated with 8mm steel and then injected with oil to prevent corrosion between the plates.
The new superstructure was built from steel framework and timber cladding to provide a good size multi level house boat. The interior has been fitted out to a superb standard with Oak faced plywood and solid Oak floors.
The accomodation now affords a covered out side canopy/conservatory area, upper saloon, open plan sitting and kitchen area, master bedroom with ensuite bathroom with corner bath/ shower, guest bedroom with ensuite shower room, storage areas throught and much much more!
