2 Bed, Detached, For Sale
Sawasdi-- converted houseboat
52 ft, Ex Harbour Service Launch built in 1942
A unique and beautiful 2-bedroom houseboat lovingly converted over the last 5 years into a stunning floating home. With bespoke furniture, incredible river views, and all the practicalities (with some nautical quirkiness) of a home this is a magical living experience.
Moored in Sussex yacht club in the beautiful town of Shoreham By Sea. Shoreham is a popular and desirable seaside town on the River Adur with the South downs on your doorstep. We are a couple of minutes walk into the town centre with its variety of shops, cafes, community centre, pubs and restaurants and only 10 minutes walk over the river to the beach and sea!
This is a rare opportunity to live in this highly desirable location!
Shoreham is a fantastic location and brilliantly connected with transport routes throughout Sussex. The vibrant city of Brighton only 20 minutes by bus/train and direct links to London in just over an hour.

We’d struggle to describe all the wonderful and unique features to this amazing home and location so to really appreciate this amazing space it must be seen in person. It will be hard to say goodbye to our floating family home but If you think this could be the life for you please do get in contact with any questions and to arrange a viewing.
Please be aware of the following: mortgages are not available for houseboats so only serious buyers with funds need apply as we do not want you to waste your or our time as this is our family home.
