     Premier Houseboats are pleased to present Edith, an ex passenger ferry stunningly converted into a beautiful and spacious family home. Edith benefits from a massive amount of accommodation, incredible external space, and, because of her prime mooring within the marina, fantastic views.
    Edith has been converted to keep the feel and look of a ship from the outside, whilst offering an amazing amount of internal accommodation, and the quality of the conversion and fit out speaks for itself. Everything about this conversion has been carefully thought out to create space, comfort and easy movement around the accommodation.
     On the below deck level Edith offers four large double bedrooms, and another two larger double bedrooms with ensuite showers and toilets. There is a family bathroom with bath, toilet, bidet and hand basin. Three of the bedrooms are to the back of the boat, and three to the front. All are beautifully decorated and fitted out, with original port holes that give plenty of light and allow good airflow when needed. All the bathrooms have been fitted using high end products.
    The deck level accommodation is a stunning space, comprising a fully fitted kitchen and breakfast bar, and a fantastic, spacious lounge area, with original doors leading to the large back terrace. There is a beautiful spiral staircase leading to the rear bedrooms, and a door leading to a hallway, where there is another shower room and toilet, utility room and a staircase down to the forward bedrooms.
    Externally the deck level has the previously mentioned spacious back terrace, and a wide. covered access around the main accommodation to the front terrace, another spacious area to enjoy your surroundings. A staircase leads up to the only unconverted part of Edith, the original wheelhouse. This would make a fantastic office area, a small lounge, or could become a fully functioning wheelhouse once again. There is another huge amount of usable deck space on this level, offering commanding views in all directions. This area currently also houses a set of solar panels.
     The deck level also houses the boiler room, with a large kerosene boiler providing all the heating and hot water for the accommodation. Steps lead down from here to the engine room, and incredible space housing all the original equipment. Although not currently in running order, the equipment can be got running again, and with the reintroduction of the wheelhouse Edith could once again cruise.
    Edith is a truly stunning example of how to convert a boat into a beautiful, spacious and characterful home, and together with her prime mooring offers a secure, peaceful and spacious way of life, and a real life changing opportunity.
