The Transporteur was a dry cargo barge that plied the Dutch coast and canals until the 1960’s, now powered by a 15 litre 4Lw Gardner engine.
As the boat was a dry cargo vessel the hold had 20 lift off roof panels, which were replaced in 2008 at a cost of £10,000 to retain its history and character.
In 2017 the boat under went a full high quality re-fit including internal and external painting at a cost of £60,000.
With a new Boat safety certificate, dry dock hull repaint and hull survey, The Transporteur is in the best possible condition it could be. There is a large rear cabin, not currently used but has its own staircase from the rear deck. There are port holes to port, starboard and stern. This cabin has power ( 240 volts ) and water which is capped off. The engine room which is large and has a head room of 7 feet houses an impressive fully restored Gardner 15 lw engine, a Hyundai 6.5 silent generator (start button in the galley& can be started by app via mobile phone) a Victron inverter/charger, which can also be connected to shore power 6KVA lights and 240 volt sockets, and 500 litre water tank. (another 2000 litre tank is in bedroom 3) The boat has now been fully equipped with a security camera and wifi hub connected to the heating and generator system, which can all be controlled via your smart phone.
The boat is moored at Platt Eyot, offering all of the benefits of Hampton, close to the local R70 and 111 bus which offers routes to Richmond and Heathrow. There is a local Sainsbury's, Pharmacy and a local public house. The property is also within walking distance to Hampton Village and a mainline station with direct links to Waterloo.
