MARINUS is an historically important Dutch trading Barge. In 2012 she was purchased by the vendors and subjected to a 3 year Surveyor-lead refit at SRF, a preeminent Dutch shipbuilding yard. The rebuild brought the hull up to an impeccable standard and new electrical, plumbing and marine systems were fitted, together with solid hardwood floors, doors and hatches. The engine was inspected and serviced. New masts and rigging were made and fitted. A final independent marine technical survey was undertaken which established MARINUS on the National List of compliant vessels, the KADASTRE. MARINUS was then sailed across the North Sea to her London berth at Hermitage Moorings. The bespoke cabinetry that had been designed and constructed to fill her cabins, bathrooms and galley were brought to her and painstakingly fitted over the next eighteen months. Unsurprisingly, the overall budget far exceeded her present asking price.
The final result is a glorious and spacious home in the centre of London within sight of Tower Bridge. MARINUS is one of the historic vessels that occupy Hermitage Moorings, a unique residential community of Doctors, Artists, Scientists and Politicians who cooperatively own and run the mooring. Access is through a private security gate off the Western end of Wapping High Street, alongside Hermitage Memorial Gardens. There is a Moorings Manager and a clubhouse usable by all residents for both communal and private use. A committee of residents runs the affairs of the mooring and all are encouraged to participate in this close-knit ‘village’ in the heart of London.
