1914 Custom Steel Barge

Beaucette Marina, Guernsey

£175,000

Having spent her life working on the canals “Gezina Elizabeth” was sailed to Guernsey in 2014, where she was fitted out to become the impressive luxury home she is today. Steel construction with shell plating riveted to a rib structure and welded double plating to the underside of the hull. With her warm and cosy accommodation, she really is like a cottage on water. During the summer of 2018, “Lizzy” spent 10 weeks out of the water for a major paint job on the hull below the waterline – satisfactory hull survey, including ultrasonic thickness readings, carried out at the same time. An exceptional opportunity to live amongst a community of like-minded people in a truly magical setting.
