Premier Houseboats are pleased to present Spirit of California, a rare opportunity to own a purpose built American cruising home, refurbished and on a secure residential mooring on the river Medway in Kent. This boat offers an array of opportunities, it can be a houseboat, weekend boat, leisure boat or fishing boat.
The refurbishment has been thoroughly and professionally completed. The new galley includes all new units and worktop, a new microwave and gas hob, and a new sink.There is hot and cold water for the sink and shower provided by a new combi boiler. There is a new multi fuel burner, with newly built surround, that provides plenty of heat. There is also brand new cutlery and crockery. The main seating area can be converted to a third double berth or two singles. The shower room houses a shower cubicle, together with a hand basin and new sea toilet. Steps lead up from the galley to the cockpit, which also has a breakfast bar. There is new lighting throughout, including spotlights.
A small flight or stairs lead down to a large cabin underneath the main living area, with two built in double berths, and plenty of storage space. The main living area also benefits from two sets of sliding doors, together with large windows all around, which create plenty of light, space and airflow, and also make navigation whilst cruising much easier.
There are three main outside deck areas, a small area at the front, a larger one at the back, and a third on the roof, enabling you to make the most of the surroundings whether stationary or cruising. The twin Volvo Penta engines provide plenty of power, and this boat can be cruised on both tidal and non tidal areas, its shallow draft allowing access to a large percentage of inland waterways.
The boat itself had the engines serviced in 2011 by York Marina, and was also anti fouled at this point. Engines were again serviced in 2015.
