Welcome to the Sovereign; an intriguing family home or superb investment opportunity, you decide! Originally from Europe, she started life

ferrying passengers along the river Rhine and the Mosel. She is now berthed at Medway Marina near the historic town of Rochester. She has certainly  had an adventurous 80 plus years and for the past 13 of those she has been a successful, highly rated, floatel, accommodating many visitors who have visited Medway from all over the world.

This houseboat is full of charm and character retaining wonderful original features such as the Wheel House and Engine Room, The Sovereign is a mainly steel structure and over the years she has been improved and maintained. In the late1980’s she arrived in London and began ferrying passengers along the river Thames from Greenwich and Tower Pier to the Thames Barrier until she retired in 1991.

Over 3 decks and spanning a length of approx. 130ft  the Soveriegn is not just a house boat; given the amount of accommodation, the size of the living areas and the 30ft deck she is a potential business for the new owner. Of the 6 bedrooms, and 5 washing facilities and two have an outside deck. There is still an incredible amount of potential to enhance this boat even further and we recommend that you come and see for yourself how exciting this opportunity is. The current owners have enjoyed running the business and are only selling due to health reasons. The Marina has a strong boating community and has a good atmosphere. There is a bar/café and friendly office staff.
