A 2008 unique design 52ft widebeam from RLL Boats - our lovely liveaboard home is up for sale. She is 52ft long & 12ft wide, with cruiser stern deck, ample living space, kitchen, bedroom, bathroom and separate loo. Reverse layout provides entrance to the main cabin - the heart of the boat. She has had interior design and renovation since purchase in 2018, including new engineered cork flooring & paint application throughout, kitchen upgrade and open plan, contemporary main cabin. Due to the unique hull and updated interior design this boat is unique and different to most traditional barge interiors, with attractive straight walls and roof, and giving plenty of space for individual free-standing furniture. A proven liveaboard for us for over 2 years, continuously cruising during this ownership - Nostromo has perfect systems for living and cruising and has been a reliable and enjoyable floating home. We found 52ft a good length for widebeam cruising/mooring within the London area, if this is what you plan to do. However this boat would also suit a holiday home ownership and is set up for permanent mooring (not included). Only two previous owners.
Further details & spec below, please get in touch to arrange a viewing - she is currently moored in London.
Video walk-through available on request.
