( A.Y.B. )Lambon Fabrications – Dutch Barge Replica for sale

Alchemy: Newly completed Dutch Barge replica, fitted out to the highest standard by a professional cabinet maker. The hull was commissioned in 2013 and we moved aboard a couple of years ago on, whilst completing the build. Alchemy is currently moored at the beautiful and sought after Tewkesbury Marina and the mooring is available with the boat subject to interview.

Alchemy displays an innovative and unique design with many outstanding features that present the boat in a beautiful and thought provoking manner. These include a large collapsable wheel house, assisted by gas struts and a complete retractable roof in the form of a tambour. This is ideal for catching some sun whilst preparing breakfast on summer mornings as well as creating a stunning slatted effect in its closed position. Other features include sliding doors for space saving solutions and tambour units in the rear cabin to hide white goods.

Examples of fine cabinet making mixed with inspiring engineering, that are unique to Alchemy, can be seen throughout this build. These include a sunburst veneer pattern on the dining table and a complicated, compound curving wall that displays itself in both the bathroom and main living space. These features are balanced beautifully with a mix of soft textiles throughout. The main two timbers that have been selected for this build are English Walnut and Oak.

From Alchemy’s use of old snooker table slate for her kitchen worktops to old stained glass inlayed in her portholes, she is truly one of a kind!
