South Dock Marina, SE16 7UX London UK|
Residential Mooring on the Thames in Central London.
The mooring and boat that are for sale were previously used by a lawyer who took a daily trip on the ferryboat across the river to Canary Wharf Pier from Greenland Pier. It is a quick trip that takes only a few minutes. This is the cheapest possible way to have a place of one's own to sleep and stay in central London, especially near Canary Wharf.
The mooring fees are £382 per calendar month, payable to Southwark Council because they own South Dock Marina, which is in Tube Zone 2 (SE16 7SZ). Southwark Council takes a 10% fee on top of the purchase price of the boat and its mooring to transfer the mooring licence to the new buyer. This is an annual mooring licence, renewable in perpetuity. Once you have a mooring in the marina you can put any boat you want on the mooring because you are not obliged to keep the same boat. The marina has connection points on the jetties so that one can connect to electricity for lights, heating and cooking; and one can easily connect to excellent fibre-optic cable broadband.
Besides having a home of your own one can easily go sailing because Nimrod is a Quarter Ton racing yacht with a draft of only 5 foot (1.52 m). This shallow draft makes Nimrod a perfect "portable private place" for a pair of lovers to go up rivers and creeks to anchor for a weekend among the birds and bulrushes, beyond sight and sound of civilization and traffic.

This is a good crash pad for a single person or for two lovers. The boat is classed as having four berths, which is OK for short voyages, but I would not want to live permanently on a sailing boat with four people aboard. There is seating at a dining table for four people, or one can eat and entertain outdoors in the cockpit.
This is a very sound and strong GRP hull, built by Westerly, who made excellent yachts.
There is a VHF radio, navigation instruments and compass. Anchor, chain and rope.
All moorings in the marina have access points for electricity and fibre-optic broadband.
This is a racing yacht with an outboard engine, to reduce weight.
The boat has a mainsail, Genoa jib, storm jib and spinnaker, with all sheets, halyards, winches and cleats in good order.
