Broker's Comments

These boat details are subject to contract.
The current owners have really maintained this Luxemotor, Dutch Barge to a very high standard as you will be able to see from the photographs and the last insurance survey when she was dry docked in 2010. They have owned her since 1985 and extensively cruised the Thames and other waterways.
This 24mtr. Luxe motor dutch barge built in 1923 is fitted out ready to live aboard and cruise the rivers and canals of Europe in style. The accommodation comprises of two en-suite double bedrooms, large saloon, well appointed galley, large collapsible wheelhouse (for getting under those few very low bridges) and with ample seating and dining table for al fresco eating and entertaining.
Headroom 2.1 metres generaly throuout the barge.
The steering is hand and very light.
The DAF engine and bow thruster make for easy handling.
The hull seen re painted, new anodes and engine serviced last year then this barge is ready to take her new owners cruising now. Come and see for yourself.
Note: Offers on the asking price may be considered.
