The Boater’s notes

This top condition houseboat is one of very few in Hong Kong able to claim to be totally off grid. Moored on its own anchors in the idyllic Plover Cove, in the Tai Po area. Immediate access to snorkeling, SUP, Kayak, island exploration, swimming to the nearby beach (500m), with endless cycling and hiking opportunities at your door step. The boat is equipped with a large solar installation, a 2 year old generator, a big lithium battery bank , giving total autonomy. Two water-makers provide all the drinking water necessary to a family of 5 living onboard full time. Complete overhaul in 2019: all surfaces, gel coats and brightworks in top condition. All systems in top working condition. Exceptional at every level. A floating 2,500 square feet villa, moored in a fabulous natural environment, rent free.
