A selection of bespoke, 1 bedroom, brand new build floating homes on long-term moorings situated by the Grand Union Canal.
We are pleased to be promoting a selection of the all new electric floating homes on the banks of the Grand Union Canal, manufactured by 2HH. The 2023 model show home is available for pre-launch visits by appointment ahead of the official marketing commencing.
These fully electric homes are being constructed by the experienced local 2HH registered boat builders, applying many innovative benefits to the design, including twin hulls for additional stability.
Once a design is chosen and the deposit is paid, the buyer has the option to be involved with the interior finishes and colour schemes.
Each unit will be made to order and will be available to move into approximately 3 months after reservation. You get to name your houseboat prior to completion.
The traditional route to purchasing a floating home is with cash, as this has been the only feasible avenue open to potential buyers, up until now!
The 2HH is offering a ground breaking alternative purchase option* to assist in acquiring a newly built home but paid for in instalments after the deposit is paid.
Meaning that a newly constructed home could be yours to own, for the equivalent of the rental costs of a 1 bedroom flat in the area.
Example of costs:  £9,950 initial payment to get the houseboat onto the water, and allowing for inspection and repairs at the end of the period, followed by a 12 year licence to occupy, with monthly payments of £1,180*.
Electrical outboard purchase from £500, insurance from £280 annually, in the area, licence from Canal and River Trust £800 per annum after electric boat discount, Mooring fees £330 per month.  To purchase outright, prices from £200,000.
After the last instalment is paid the floating home is yours.
Each mooring has its own outside space for storage and relaxation.
The moorings are well placed for Uxbridge Underground (Metropolitan Line), being a 0.9 miles walk and ideally located for Brunel University London at 0.8 mile walk.
Uxbridge High Street with an array of shops and the Pavilions Shopping Centre are within a 0.9 mile walk as is the Bus and Coach station Hub.
The newly operational Elizabeth Line, including access, among other locations, to Heathrow, Paddington, Canary Wharf and Woolwich and is accessed at West Drayton, being 3 miles from the moorings.
*options based on individual circumstances and may not be available to all applicants subject to terms and conditions

Making the houseboat your own:

While the houseboats all share a common structural platform there is great flexibility for the internal and external appearance.

There are a range of internal and external colours to choose from. There are various kitchen and bathrooms ranges. Electrical systems can be adjusted to give you a choice of appliances.

Floating homes need to be insured and have a Canals and River Trust licence.

A revolutionary houseboat design:

Everybody mentions the ceiling height and the stability as soon as they come aboard. Boat roll and movement have been minimised when aboard to make it feel and look so much better than a conventional craft.

Houseboat moorings and continuous cruising options:

Absolute Homes can assist you in finding a suitable mooring if required.

For example—There are a limited number of moorings currently under renovation in Uxbridge which will be available from April 2024. These are long term moorings with electrical and water supply. The moorings are available on a 5 year rolling lease with rent currently set at £330 per month. Mooring fees are reviewed in May each year and rise by the rate of inflation as notified by the Canal and River Trust. The moorings can be transferable as described in the mooring agreements. There are specific rules for the site which are described in the mooring agreement.

The houseboats can be converted for continuous cruising and if an electric system is retained would be eligible for the 2024 electric boat discount on annual boat licence. The requirements for continuous cruising can be found on the Canal and River Trust web site.
