"Ava Rose" is a fully converted Oil Rig Lifeboat.
The Survival Craft SC80F with a 30hp Yanmar engine was converted in 2018 and has been run as successful AirBnb Business on the Forth & Clyde Canal on a commercial mooring and commercial boat safety certificate. The pod was converted as a business with the thought of "non-boaters" stay, so has been converted with the highest spec materials and made to be as homely as possible. With "staycations" becoming more popular the pod has been fantastically busy, charging between £86-£120 per night. In a more central location this could be much more. This could offer a fantastic second income or be a wonderful live aboard.
