Beat the cost of living crisis living aboard our beautiful, off grid, fully restored 42ft 1 Bed floating home. Full structural and cosmetic rebuild. Off Grid Living. Fully furnished. Custom interior/specification. Needs for nothing, ready to enjoy.
Classic ‘Caribbean’ style broads cruiser, as architectural designers we undertook a 2 year structural and cosmetic rebuild of this classic design to create a beautiful, light and airy, off grid, mobile, living space on the water.
The broad’s cruiser design offers generous accommodation as well as some great design features making them easy to navigate and enjoy on the water as a boat, as well as a beautiful and comfortable live aboard space. Including generous wide decks for walking around the entire boat, allowing easy and safe access on and off when mooring or maneuvering. The main feature for us was the helm being at the front of the boat adjacent to the generous seating well within the bow, which can easy seat six plus people, allowing you to navigate the boat where you have most visibility, whilst being at the front enjoying the journey with your friends, away from the noise of the engine. All in all a great, lightweight, easy to navigate, sociable, fun boat, offering off grid living as well as enjoyable boating,
