Morning Star started her life as a cement barge working the canals in Holland. When she retired, she was bought to the UK and was converted into the beautiful live aboard she is today. The spacious wheel house is a fantastic space to sit and watch the world go by. Stairs to the aft cabin lead you into the original, sympathetically restored, Captains Cabin with room for a double bed. The separate galley and heads compartment makes this a self contained 'apartment'. Back in the wheel house, as you pass the original steering wheel, the stair case leads you down into the open plan galley and saloon. The bespoke galley has ample storage and a large gas/electric range cooker. The breakfast bar separates the galley and saloon. A larder fridge freezer is hidden under the stairs. The saloon is bathed in natural light from the above skylights which also open for fresh air. There is plenty of room for sofas and a dining table and benefits from a large wood burning stove set on a hearth made from original deck plates. As you move into the starboard corridor, the heads compartment is to port with a large shower, toilet and wash basin. There is a laundry space with washing machine and tumble dryer. Moving further forward, you find the additional double bedrooms and storage room. One is currently set up as an office. All rooms benefit from bespoke portholes. The river bank mooring includes a private garden. The monthly rent for the mooring is £800.
