Broker's Comments

Boatshed Bourgogne is pleased to offer this 26m Luxemotor Péniche for sale. Carefully converted by a bargee for his own use this LuxeMotor is an Aladins cave of innovation and quality upgrades. Recently returned from Germany and Poland where our vendors have clocked up hundreds of happy miles and many more souvenirs this is a hugely practical barge for navigating the French and European waterways (Rhin certificate) including Canal du Midi. The deck terrace with hydraulic sun shade is just one example of practical innovation. For more information and appointments to view, contact Cathy Bouguereau, your Boatshed broker at Boatshed Bourgogne
