The Eva May is a sympathetically converted live aboard historic barge. The fit out has been completed to a high standard, and importantly, undertaken with an understanding of a previous working life so retaining her unique character. The galley is the entrance to the Eva May, where the well appointed kitchen shares the wheelhouse and offers a panoramic view across the decks. The galley also has access to storage below deck.
From the galley, down a polished wooden stair is the large, sumptuous and cosy living room with oil burning fire and eye level windows at deck height that provide an airy light feel, while offering cosy privacy - a real feature of the Eva May.
A glass door leads off the living room to a passageway, housing washing/drying machines and off this 3 double bedrooms and the second bathroom. The bedrooms have double beds and fitted furniture which offer plenty of storage for everyday life. The bathroom has toilet, washbasin and a bath/shower. There is a further toilet/shower room leading off the stairway on a small hallway from the galley.
The engine room is extremely functional and a reminder of a bygone era - it feels really ship like, with plenty of room to store kit.
