     Premier Houseboats are pleased to present Temptation II, a stunning Trojan  Shepherd on a prime mooring, offering space, luxury, style and a life-changing opportunity with huge potential as a business as well.

     Temptation II has been meticulously maintained over the last 22 years by the current owners and has undergone a complete refit internally.  In full cruising condition, she represents an outstanding prospect. Her accommodation provides a fantastic space both internally and externally.  She’s luxurious and ready to move, live onboard or continue as an Airbnb business - either by living onboard or elsewhere, currently charging approx £400 per night with an income of over £85,000 per annum.

    The accommodation comprises of three good-sized cabins. The master has a super king bed en-suite with a bath, shower and toilet, plus a large screen smart tv. The second cabin has twin beds and an en-suite shower and toilet. The third cabin is a double bunk v berth with en-suite shower and toilet. There’s a separate laundry room with a washing machine and dryer. A fully fitted kitchen with a full size hob and oven, fridge freezer, microwave, waste compactor and hot and cold taps with separate cold-water filter.  Complete with china, pots and pans and cutlery. And a large dining table in the galley with built in seating. There also built-in wardrobes in the bedrooms and plenty of other cupboards and storage space.

     The salon is an excellent size, light and airy with large windows to enjoy your surroundings. There’s a good-sized covered dining area on the back deck with a lovely outlook. A completely private four-man covered hot tub on the upper deck with amazing panoramic views which can used at anytime day or night at any time of year and also benefiting with a near-by shower. There’s a dinghy and swim platform.

    The two Cummins 903 engines producing 450 hp each are plenty for cruising tidal and non-tidal waterways. Fully serviced, and with large fuel and water tanks and a 11kw generator. Temptation II is in excellent mechanical condition.  She comes fully furnished, with tools and spare parts and the current owners are also willing to handover all relevant business records and knowledge.

    Temptation II is an incredible opportunity, whether you’re looking for an affordable spacious family home in secure idyllic surroundings, a cruising home to enjoy the waterways of the world, a business opportunity or a mixture of all three.           Moored in a secure private marina, with stunning scenes of the river, but close-by all amenities. Temptation II must be viewed to be truly appreciated.
