73ft 2ins x 20ft 3ins

Built in 1925 by Cochrane of Selby as a edible oil tanker barge Hen is a National Historic Fleet vessel being the last Humber Keel of her type. 73’2” x 20’3”. All riveted double skinned steel construction she is a tiller steered unpowered craft with a small basic original aft cabin with just two rough benches around the stern and a flat up table cupboard in the middle, just somewhere to have a cup of tea!! The owner can supply a vintage solid fuel stove for approx ¬£100.00. Forward is a similarly sized small paint and rope store. The hold is accessed through eight hatches on the flat top of the deck.The hold space is approximately 60ft long x 16ft wide and is divided by steel bulkheads into four tanks with a central "wash" bulkhead running down the centre line (which all could be removed for a conversion). The tank space is all dry. The depth of the hold from the tank floors to the deck is approx. 12ft. The hold/tank top is of very sound steel so everything below is already weather tight. Lately used as a firework and event platform on the Mersey Hen has just been drydocked for survey and repainting in August 2017 and has full commercial Mersey Docks¬† and Manchester Ship Canal certification and is still in service on the Mersey. Good survey report available August 2017.
For further use as a tank vessel, firework / events or workboat platform. Alternatively she could maybe make an instant liveaboard houseboat with a log cabin / mobile home placed on the flat top deck, or by converting the hold.
