We are excited to to be offering a unique opportunity to own this 1957 Humber Keel Grain Barge - Classic Lass -which has an interesting history.
Classic Lass was featured on season 3 of the Channel 5 documentary with George Clark, Build a New Life in the Country where they followed the conversion of Classic Lass from a rusty old barge into a very comfortable houseboat.
Her then owners sold her 9 years ago to a craftsman who after a pouring a lot of money (receipts to prove) and time into giving Classic Lass a new lease of life has had to give her up for personal reasons.
She is currently looking tired on the outside, but inside wouldn't take too much work to turn her into a very comfortable 2 bedroom houseboat once more. While she does have an engine and steering gear, they are not currently in a serviceable condition.
We have a wet survey from 2011 available for interested parties to view in our office. For Classic Lass to remain on the yard she would need to have a new full survey.
Inside has lovely Oak flooring, a bespoke Oak Kitchen with a large range cooker, and a lovely bathroom with a roll top bath and marble flooring. Her current layout also gives 2 double bedrooms and an office, with a huge living room sporting a large log burner.
There is so much potential she has to be viewed to be appreciated.
We have residential moorings available separately.
