50ft Steel Barge for Sale. Lady Alice is a steel barge measuring 50ft x 10'6. Originally constructed in 2001 by Evans and Sons in Hixon, Staffordshire, the boat remained part built and unfinished for some years. She is constructed of 12mm thick steel for the hull, 10mm for the sides and 6mm for the roof. The hull has been recently "blacked" and has been done every two years. She provides a generous 6'9" headroom.
The present owners purchased the boat in 2011, gutted the vessel and started the fit-out from scratch. The vessel had the engine fitted in 2012. and she was seaworthy from this year. However, the present owners have never launched Lady Alice and she has been used ashore as a holiday home here at Titchmarsh Marina in Walton-on-the-Naze, Essex where she makes for a perfect liveaboard.
The Shanks 43hp diesel engine is however often run up and only has 36hrs.

The living area will include the sofa bed, TV and armchair. heating is provided by radiators. Going forward up two steps is the foredeck.
