Currently there are only two berths, but there is off course scope to extend the accommodation and the number of berths significantly.
The current accommodation is a temporary structure in the hold and there is also a storgage area but none of this would need to remain in the finished version.

Broker's Comments

This Steel Barge has great potential as a live aboard the hull looks sound and the space can be developed to provide spacious accommodation.
The Diesel engine is also still in place meaning there is therefore the option to keep it and make this boat moveable, rather than just a static houseboat.
There is a lot to do to get this boat fitted out and finished but the potential is clear.
This barge has at one point been used as a dredger, hence the Hiab. The boat is afloat but dries out on blocks, the hull can been seen and would be relatively easy to get inspected.
These boat details are subject to contract.
