US Navy Tugboat Converted Into Home

US Navy Tugboat Converted Into Home


COMM: A US Navy tugboat has been transformed, into a luxurious home. COMM: Londoner Phil Wallis spent two years converting the vessel. PHIL: The cost to restore the boat was, lets say including labour, probably over forty
thousand pounds. COMM: He says his family couldn’t quite believe him when they found out his new home floated. PHIL: When I told my family and friends that I was gonna live on a boat, they naturally
thought it was gonna be a narrow boat or something like that, but when they actually saw that
it was a tugboat, they were pretty impressed. PHIL: This is my kitchen, as you can see it’s got the six Range burner, a dishwasher, washing
machine, all the mod cons of what you would find in a house. PHIL: This is my music room and large screen TV for watching football and that, and we’ve
had many a good party down here. COMM: He know pays just four hundred pound a month for the mooring, including electricity. PHIL: The value for money you can get down here, and the river life is really, really
nice. PHIL: So that’s been my boat, see you later.
