Broker's Comments

A genuine and beautiful 1920 Dutch Aak Barge. Suitable as a live-aboard, but would also make a fine vessel for extended or holiday cruising.

This is a boat which would be a pleasure to own and a joy to cruise.

These boat details are subject to contract.
Note: Offers on the asking price may be considered.
