About this Rhine Cruiser Thames Sovereign B&B

The Sovereign, a 1930's Rhine cruising ship is permanently berthed on the banks of the river Medway, near the historic town of Rochester. Weighing 170 tonnes, she is very stable and has been completely renovated to provide a comfortable environment for our guests and visitors to the Marina.The ship was originally built in 1930 in Germany under the name of 'Deutsches Eck' and was used as a regular passenger ferry boat on the Rhine and the Mosel. In 1953 she underwent a general rebuild which included the addition of a 7-metre length section with a solid ceiling. She continued carrying passengers under various names (Drachenfels, Lohengrin, then back to Deutsches Eck) until 1984. After her final trip, she was taken to Holland for a number of years. In 1987 she arrived in London and by mid-May 1988 she was running from Festival Pier to Greenwich and Tower Pier to the Thames barrier, under the name of The Thames Sovereign. She was retired in 1991 and arrived at Medway Bridge Marina shortly after. She is currently available for sale as a 6 room Bed and Breakfast, or as a live aboard, a mortgage is achievable and viewing is by appointment only.
