Custom built widebeam, perfect for living on, moored or cruising.
Greenhouse is a well equipped boat, ready for continuous cruising and kitted out with all the things one needs for comfortable and convenient living with maximum flexibility. She is easy and responsive to handle and fits anywhere making her an ideal boat for both experienced and less experienced boaters alike. We have loved owning, caring for and living aboard her and hope to find appreciative owners to take over as custodians of our lovely boat.
Built-in bow gives an extra 5' of interior space making a 40' boat with the layout of a 45' - spacious interior, yet compact for cruising. Pram cratch cover over cruiser stern creates an extra 'room' on the stern deck and a clean, dry engine room. Responsive handling and bow thruster in case of need. Hospital silencer on engine makes for quiet and pleasant cruising. High ceilings with nearly straight sides maximise interior space. This is a unique, well-made and loved boat.
Location - Little Venice, Central London
Custom built by Pennine Cruisers in 2012
We are the second owners of this versatile liveaboard, and have owned it since 2015. We had a baby in 2020 and now need a boat with a second bedroom.
Greenhouse started life in Skipton and was built to order by a gentleman in his 80s! He carefully designed the boat to make it easy to live on and navigate on his own. He was a skilled engineer and designed the boat beautifully.
Greenhouse was built with continuous cruising in mind but has been static apart from minor cruising since 2015 when she came to moor on our permanent London mooring.
She has therefore had very little hull exposure and remains in very good condition. Last out of the water in 2018, she was 2-pack epoxied (lasts 10-15 years), re-anoded and inspected at P&S Marina.
In 2020 Greenhouse was repainted with Craftmaster. Engine room painted in 2017.
The engine is always run regularly, fuel tank kept topped up with pre-emptive marine 16 and annual maintenance carried out. Diesel was sampled recently and came out completely clean. Overall the boat has been carefully maintained and remains in excellent condition.
