Wingate of Chichester

Perfect platform for the construction of a large floating home!

Wingate of Chichester was, according to the current owner, originally a lifeboat from the cruise ship SS Canberra. She was decommissioned in the 1980s and started life as a trip boat in Arboath.

Around 1988 she was purchased by a harbour tour company in Chichester where she was given a refit and changed to her present format.

Built in 1961

Length 36ft

Beam 12ft

Draft 3ft

Tonnage 13.5

Deck replaced in 2010

Wingate has only run during the summer months, spending winter out of the water.

This vessel is MCA coded for 52 passengers and 2 crew with the licence expiring in 2024. She also has an up to date domestic safety management policy (dsm ).

She would make a perfect and very novel floating bar, coffee shop or fast food boat and would be ideal operating in large marinas or busy harbours.

She could also be converted into a floating home.
