A stunning sailing barge used in the making of the new Christopher Nolan epic Dunkirk is on the market for £425,000.<br />
<br />
Xylonite features in the highly anticipated war film which stars Tom Hardy, Mark Rylance, Cillian Murphy and former One Direction singer Harry Styles in his first film role.<br />
<br />
Although it was not involved in the real Operation Dynamo - when multiple Thames barges went across the Channel to help the Allied soldiers stranded on the beach at Dunkirk in 1940 - Xylonite was built in 1926 and its exterior has changed very little from its pre-war days, which made it perfect for the movie.<br />
<br />
But inside the 86ft boat has been transformed into a stunning houseboat with a spacious open plan living area, fully-fitted galley and bedrooms, whilst keeping many period features.
