Eleuthera and her sister boat Islay clearly stand out amongst the Bembridge Houseboats.

Known by her owners as “Ele”, Eleuthera sits facing the harbour with stunning, uninterrupted views across the harbour and out into the Solent. Moored in Bembridge since June 2020, Eleuthera and her sister boat Islay clearly stand out amongst the Bembridge Houseboats.

This former ‘hopper barge’ has simple Danish and Japanese inspired design by the barrel load. Vaulted ceiling, polished-walnut furnishings and commissioned artwork throughout. Colouring and aesthetics are influenced by the principals of Feng Shui and wabisabi (侘寂), the world view centred on the acceptance of transience and imperfection, in recognition of the previous life of this glorious vessel.

Built in 2018 Eleuthera represents more than a project to build a family holiday home. She has taken us on a life journey to all parts of the country meeting suppliers and manufacturers, learning new skills, overcoming fresh challenges and making friends along the way.  

“Eleuthera”, references her owners family roots in the Bahamas and the joy, freedom, memories and fun that can be had on an island in the sunshine. “Eleuthera” derives from the feminine form of the Greek (eleútheros), meaning “free”.

The Furniture has been designed by Charlotte and built with the help of Sam from Islay, to be elegant yet practical for a family break. Eleuthera invites you to relax in the soft earthy tones of the maple wood and natural colours and elemental design. Natural colours provide the ‘Wood, Fire and Earth’ elements to balance the ‘metal’ of the hull and ‘Water’ of the harbour for optimum Feng shui of the space.
