Boathouse | 1 bedrooms | sleeps 5
Static Boat Holidays are proud to introduce you to this boat rental, Moby II is a houseboat, converted from a wooden Norwegian fishing boat. The interior of the boat is rustic, light and spacious, with plenty of headroom.
The boat is on two levels, the upper level consisting of a T.V room (where there is a fold out double bed) at the stern, (which is the back of the boat); and on the bow of the boat is a quiet wooden seating area overlooking the Mosquito sailing club. Directly behind this area is a wooden desk and computer station. Wifi can be purchased from Spark.
In the centre of the boat is a flight of eight wooden steps leading to a generously proportioned kitchen dining area, which could easily seat ten people. In this area there is also a three quarter size double bed, which can be used as a day lounging area.
Between the kitchen area and the bathroom are tatty arm chairs, the bathroom uniquely consists of a roll top bath and shower.
Turning to the back of the boat, as you walk along the corridor there is a toilet to the right hand side, walking further along the corridor is a large master bedroom, with a wood burner.
The houseboat is fully central heated, has mains electric and a gas cooker in the galley area. The kitchen has a butler sink, microwave and fridge.
The owner of Moby II does not object to pets coming with owners, but suggests the animals stay on the top level for their own safety because of the steep wooden steps leading to the lower level. Unusually there is plenty of floor space on Moby II, again the owner does not mind if the boat is taken by a two families and the floor space is utilised for additional sleeping space, obviously you will need to bring blow up beds, pillows and sleep bags with you.
Moby II is located on the outer wall of Torpoint Yacht Harbour, there is a small rise and fall, which will vary the height of the boat against the harbour wall, but it is easy to step on the boat at all tides. From the bow of Moby II you are over the slipway of the sailing club. Because the boat is positioned on a cobbled quay, the owner states that no children under fourteen can stay because he is worried about their safety.
