Property: Number 45 at The Boat is knots ahead when it comes to stylish city living

Beulah-Anne Sinton

Offers over £975,000

While we may not have yet reached the dizzying heights of Dubai, New York, Shanghai and closer to home London, Belfast is positively booming. 

Enjoying its own mini-Renaissance if you will, the city is now home to a smattering of new attractions, bars, restaurants, nightclubs and of course big players in the world of commerce, technology and enterprise. And of course there is the renewed interest in many of its cultural cornerstones and its proud industrial heritage. 

And with this new age, the demand for stylish apartment living in the very epicentre of everything that’s happening, has also increased. However demand has often outstripped supply. And that’s precisely what makes this penthouse apartment at The Boat so very desirable. 

It’s not often that properties of this calibre come on the market, and even more-so at this truly iconic building: a multi-award winner for its design and also once described as a “beacon of hope for Northern Ireland” by former Minister for Social Development Margaret Ritchie. 

For offers over £975,000 this is a unique opportunity to acquire property in this building, a true landmark across Belfast’s glittering skyline. 

Extending approximately 2,200 sq ft, the apartment is practical in that it already boasts much more space than many of its nearest rivals. 

Practicalities aside, it is this apartment’s design - in fact every fibre of its being - that makes it a true showstopper. Only recently completed with the design and specification a combined effort of John Duffy International Design Group and Castle Interiors Limited, if Jay Gatsby had wanted to set sail across the Atlantic and set up home in Belfast, he would have probably chosen somewhere like Number 45 at The Boat. 

Sprawling the ninth and tenth floor and offering four terraces complete with a hot tub and of course, a bespoke “boat” seating area with views right across Belfast, it is the perfect spot from which to sip some Bollinger and toast 1920s style. 

Located in the highly desirable Custom House Square, Number 45 is very much perfectly placed in the happening hub of the city which has witnessed significant development in recent years. 

If you can peel yourself away from views of the ever changing cityscape, Belfast’s best bars and restaurants are tantalisingly close. 

Offering three spacious bedrooms and finished to the finest specifications, this penthouse is ideal for someone who would like a very special bolthole. You will have a luxury handmade kitchen with built in bar to call your very own and of course an office where mundane tasks will easily become a little less bothersome courtesy of the sublime views. 

The property also of course offers a masterclass in technology with every additional feature installed for your ease, comfort and peace of mind. The apartments feature underground car parking, accessed from a street level car lift. There’s also a CCTV video front door entry system for added security. 

Designed for a new era, Number 45 at The Boat is arguably one of the most impressive apartments to come to the market in years. Its sheer quality can meanwhile only be truly appreciated by an internal inspection.
