ASTRAEUS was built by Rowhedge Ironworks. She is of teak double diagonal construction. She is thought to have been built in 1920 or possibly earlier as an admiralty steam harbour launch. She was converted circa 1950 to a launch with two Leyland diesel engines from a Matilda Infantry tank. ASTRAEUS has been a houseboat from at least 1973, which still goes up river occasionally. She is in good condition and based at Isleworth.
