Constructed in the Vanderville yard in 1966 she is one of the last Midi Canal barges to be constructed. She traded in the Midi until 1972 when lack of trade forced her out into the big wide world. She was lengthened to 38.5m Freycinet size and continued to trade throughout northern Europe including Germany, (hence her Rhine Patent, now lapsed) She remained in the hands of her first owner right up until his retirement in 1992 when she passed into the hands of her present owner. Under new ownership she was transformed back into her original Midi canal dimensions and had a new bottom (not doubled) put on. Complete documentation accompanies the boat from construction to present day and she is (almost) better than new.
