The 33-meter long boat is comprised of a spacious open-plan living and dining room, which is connected to a curved kitchen in the stern and the en-suite master bedroom. Modern spiralled staircases link the main deck to the lower and upper decks, where three further en-suite bedrooms, a sky lounge, study area and utility room are located. And of course, the best thing about it is the surrounding views of the river.
If you’re concerned about being exposed to the elements in the winter, fear not, it has been fully kitted out with all the mod-cons for comfortable living – including underfloor heating, climate control and central heating.
Christened ‘Flagship’, the boat was built by the Van der Windt shipyard in Holland in 1915 and was originally used to carry dry cargo around the rivers and canals of Europe. She came to London in the 1980s, where she was refurbished to become one of the Capital’s top restaurants.

She has spent the last 25 years in her current spot, neighbouring the likes of Mick Jagger, George Eliot and Sylvia Pankhurst. The recent re-design has put her on a par with surrounding high-end properties in Chelsea, currently listed on Knight Frank with a guide price of £2.5million, which includes a 50-year mooring licence at Cadogan Pier.
