The nearby pedestrianised streets are lined by popular shops, cafes and restaurants such as Spitfire, Friska, Spoke and Stringer.

Our Seller Says…
"Having the boat has been a life enhancing experience and we are very sad to be saying goodbye to our base on the harbour only because we now need more space. We love the vibrant yet peaceful lifestyle available all around the harbour and the ever-changing scenery and light which you only get afloat."
