Greenlaw – 1937 Large Woolwich. Originally with 7,000 rivets, she was built by Harland & Wolff. She was launched in 1937 during the coronation year of George VI as part of the Grand Union Co. fleet. In celebration of the coronation their livery colours at this time were red, white and blue and the current owners have been restoring her to these original colours.
Greenlaw is a living piece of history and is in remarkable condition, including her hull which was surveyed in 2016. She has been re-fitted by her current & previous owners and is ready to move onto.
Please note she is not moored at Stowe Hill Wharf so please call to make an appointment.
The 10’ fore deck offers good open air space with storage both under the deck & under the gas locker. The enormous water tank is below. The generator, a second fridge, tool store and tumble dryer are housed here also.
Through stable doors and into the saloon, which is a beautifully finished room with the Epping range as the centrepiece; and offers a warm, cosy and homely feel.
The walk-through galley is spacious and light, with two side doors, a Belfast sink, drop in cooker, fridge/freezer & washing machine.
The compact bathroom has a Thetford cassette loo, another smaller Belfast sink and shower cubicle.
The charming bedroom follows with a beautiful mahogany free standing wardrobe, chest of drawers and a good size double bed. There is storage under the bed along with the battery bank & immersion heater.
And then into heaven for the traditionalists; the engine room with the thumping hand start Lister JP2M followed by the very traditional boatmans cabin with cross bed, a second Epping range, drop down table and crumb drawer. All sympathetically reproduced and an exquisite trip down memory lane.
There are also some modern additions which include the Kubola central heating system, four 100w solar panels, a 2.8kw generator, 2.5kw invertor and an immersion heater.
Greenlaw – 1937 Large Woolwich is a beautiful boat, suitable for living aboard, and combining the best of both past and present.
