Broker's Comments

These boat details are subject to contract.

Preliminary details awaiting owners consent.

A traditional Dutch Barge commonly known as a 'Luxemotor Barge'. Its Distinctive appearance cannot be mistaken. Originally, this was designed and built as a motorship. She would have been used to ferry goods along inland and coastal waterways. They lend themselves to conversion and make first class liveaboards.

This vessel came out of service in 1980 and was converted in Rotterdam with work completed in 1982. She travelled to the United Kingdom in 2001 and settled on the Medway in Kent where she has provided her current owners with a lovely lifestyle.

This is an excellent example of its type. The vessel offers well proportioned and spacious accommodation. The internal fittings are very well appointed. I found the vessel to be very homely and comfortable. She has a most definite feel which I liked.

Recently, the hull has been replated and I felt that she was very solid.

If you are looking for a good liveaboard then this most certainly has to be on your list.

Offers will be considered.
