hotel barge for sale
"African Queen", Mapledurham, nr Henley-on-Thames, Berkshire
Price £450,000
Hotel Barge On The River Thames
The African Queen is an award-winning 100ft Dutch barge currently operating as a successful hotel barge and although this African Queen doesn't include Humphrey Bogart and has never made it on the big screen, it has been featured on TV on both the Hotel Inspector and Countryfile.

The current owners offer popular long weekend and weeklong cruises between Goring and Henley on Thames and the ship-shape, three star accommodation was awarded a certificate of excellence in 2011 and 2012 by Trip Advisor. It also won top stay / top performer by Saga Holidays and there's a tremendous customer base with many accolades from satisfied guests and a good amount of repeat business.

On board are a good sized restaurant area which is open plan to a large bar, a fully equipped kitchen and good-sized lounge area all benefitting from panoramic views of the passing countryside. To the foredeck there's an additional large seating area for guests and down below, there are eight en suite cabins (accommodating 12 passengers), two crew rooms and a laundry room.

And when the African Queen is not cruising she lies on a licenced residential mooring overlooking open countryside in the picturesque village of Mapledurham

This is a superb opportunity to purchase a successful business model in a great location, or for the ultimate in riverside living, you could pull up the gang plank and keep her all for youself.
