off grid houseboat project
Location: Cuxton, Kent
Premier Houseboats are pleased to present Pelican, a Thames Lighter ready to convert to a good sized home, set up to create its own power on an off grid mooring. The owner of the mooring has already made great improvements over the last year including improved access, parking bays, new gate and a water well.
The vessel has 3kw of solar panels, 1400 amp/h traction batteries for energy storage, an inverter/charger, a separate 24v high capacity charger and a petrol generator. The adding of a wind turbine would provide reliable power and negate the need of the generator.
Inside the hull the work thus far has been carried out to a good standard, with insulation, flooring and some wiring already in place. the steel deck would be ideal to build another level on, and make the most of the isolation and stunning views over the North Downs and river Medway.
This is an unusual and rare opportunity, and an exciting chance for anyone looking for peace and quiet, whilst creating a good sized, off grid home.
Length over all:58' 1"
Maximum draft:3' 9"
