buy sell rent or let your Houseboat, floating home or mooring
Your Specialist HOUSEBOAT & FLOATING HOME Agent
RiverHomes is proud to be the largest seller of houseboats and floating homes with moorings in London: our knowledge, experience and success is unmatched. We list all our houseboats for sale on the main property portals, and have the most extensive ‘Land Registry’ of sales which uniquely powerful insight enables us to advise you on price and market using comparable evidence like no-one else.
Life afloat presents one of the most unique living experiences in London with the benefits of community, fun and wellbeing at its heart, and at RiverHomes we have known and loved this side of river life from the start.
Covering the whole of London’s floating community, such as Brentford and Chiswick to Vauxhall, Wapping and beyond including the canal network – we know which piers are residential or leisure, which moorings have the Uber Clipper and how to have a boat built; as well as having an enviable ‘little black book’ of marine surveyors, insurers, lawyers, boatyards and chandlers.
London’s houseboats and floating homes offer great lifestyle benefits: not least the rare opportunity to live peacefully in nature in the middle of the capital.
Moorings can be found in some of London’s most desirable postcodes, yet houseboats and barges can often be obtained at a fraction of the cost of comparably sized houses and flats.
Living on a houseboat allows you to connect directly with the natural environment, sharing an ever-changing landscape with a host of wildlife even while the city buzzes around you. You’ll find a true oasis of calm amid the urban bustle – with all the space, freedom and relaxation that city-dwellers crave.
The strong communities forged on moorings through this unique shared experience are also often the envy of those still living in bricks and mortar.
Overseen by our Director Nigel Day, RiverHomes has become the dominant player in the market – to the extent that we now sell virtually every ‘floating home with mooring’ offered for sale in London. We have sold in every major mooring community on the Thames – and our expertise is routinely sought by local councils, public corporations and developers alike.
We offer London’s most comprehensive range of houseboats, floating homes and moorings to buy or rent: be it on the river, canal, quay, marina or wharf.
All our houseboats are sold or rented with an accompanying mooring.
The vast majority of houseboats, floating homes and moorings we sell are to cash buyers. That said, there are Marine Finance options available. If this route applies to you, we recommend investigating your options first before arranging viewings.
