Broker's Comments

This is a stunning example of the smaller style of Dutch Barge. It has been extensively refitted by its current owners. It would be absolutely ideal as small live-aboard for a couple or one person.

It should be noted that the cabin height descends to about 5"8"' (1.73m)

No mooring is offered with this boat.
