68ft LAMBON FABRICATIONS 2013
ALCHEMY is a beautifully finished and very creatively designed boat that is ready to go. She is currently moored at Tewkesbury Marina, please contact us to arrange a viewing.
Alchemy: Newly completed Dutch Barge replica, fitted out to the highest standard by a professional cabinet maker.
Alchemy displays an innovative and unique design with many outstanding features that present the boat in a beautiful and thought provoking manner. These include a large collapsible wheelhouse, assisted by gas struts and a retractable roof in the form of a rolling tambour - ideal for catching some sun whilst preparing breakfast on summer mornings as well as creating a stunning slatted effect in its closed position. Other unique features include sliding doors for space saving solutions and tambour units in the rear cabin to hide the washing machine and freezer.
The main two timbers found on Alchemy are English Walnut and Oak. These harmonise perfectly with the textiles used throughout the fit-out.
From Alchemy's use of old snooker table slate for her kitchen worktops to stained glass inlayed in her portholes, she is truly one of a kind and makes for a perfect floating home!
Recent completed work:
All timber work (Wheelhouse, skylights, mast, aft railings and front windows) has been sanded back and finished with the renowned Scandinavian Desk Olje finish: a 2 part finish (which consists of 10 base coats of oil, then 6 top coats of varnish). This product is the best on the market and will stop any silvering and guarantees now flaking or peeling off the varnish due to the oil base coats. The timber looks superb and as new!
Alchemy was recently dry docked and the hull was blacked to a high standard in May 2017. Anodes still have a few years on them. A hull survey was carried out at the same time.
