Floating chapel transformed into £300k luxury houseboat

A floating chapel that has been transformed into a luxury houseboat is up for sale for £300,000.

The unique two-bedroom property was formerly a wedding chapel and was known as “Chapel on the Bay”.

More than £1million has been spent on the original construction in 2004 and subsequent conversion over the years into an upmarket luxury home.

The vessel boasts original features including a 30-feet steeple and seven stained-glass windows.

The 1,050 square foot home sits on an 1,800 square foot barge and weighs a colossal 33 tons.

The houseboat is currently listed by Brenda Thompson at specialfinds.com who said the property has been attracting interest from around the globe.



She said: “The interest has been extreme. I send the owner five to seven leads per month.

“We’ve had interest from people all over the world – from China and Australia and just about every state in the US.
