Gweek is a beautiful and peaceful village on the Helford river in Cornwall, with the boatyard sited right in its centre, offering the opportunity to become part of a friendly and idyllic community, both within the boatyard and the village. Gweek Boatyard is now able to offer residential moorings for up to twenty houseboats. The boats that are able to be moored there will need to be moveable under their own power, ideally of a Dutch barge or widebeam narrowboat style. To be able to live on your boat at Gweek you will be expected to maintain your boat to a high standard, and regularly take your vessel out of the water for maintenance and any external aesthetic work that is needed to ensure the beauty of the surroundings is maintained. Gweek Boatyard will be able to supply all the facilities you will need to achieve this high level of maintenance, and be able to insure your boat to a fully comprehensive level. On the boatyard, which is also a working boatyard, there are professionals available to assist in every aspect of boat maintenance. Facilities such as mains electricity supply, mains water supply, black and grey water pump out facilities, parking and a high level of security will be available. The moorings will be created on a first come first served basis, and given the lack of available residential moorings in Cornwall this represents a truly life changing opportunity. As can be seen from the photographs, this is an area of exceptional natural beauty, and this will be enhanced by the look of the residential vessels moored there. The cost to create these moorings is considerable, and the opportunity to reside on a houseboat in Cornwall is extremely rare, and this is reflected in the cost to secure one of these exclusive moorings. If you already own and reside on a houseboat and want to change location, or you dream of buying a boat and living in one of the most stunning locations in the UK, then this is an opportunity not to be missed.

Kaipaa is unusual in that the engine room is intact and in full working order, but she still has plenty of accommodation space to live comfortably afloat. Kaipaa has two double cabins, and also two further cabins each with two single berths. She has a bathroom and a shower room, and two toilets. She also has a sauna room. There is a good sized mess room and galley on the upper levels, where you can also enjoy your surroundings by utilising the wheelhouse when not moving. The accommodation is fully insuulated throughout, and can be changed easily if more living space and less bedrooms are needed. One of the great things about Kaipaa is although there is plenty of accommodation, she is a working vessel so she still feels like a boat throughout, the decor is certainly a more traditional boat fit out. There is also room to extend the accommodation if needed. There is a large amount of outside space on differing levels to enjoy your surroundings wherever you may find yourself. For the rare chance to have a fully working tug, and be able to live comfortably on it, Kaipaa is a great opportunity.
