Broker's Comments

Boatshed bourgogne est heureux de proposer ce Broom Océan à vendre. Un Broom Ocean 40 c’est plutôt rare sur les eaux intérieures mais quelle joie quand on en trouve un. La qualité, le confort, une vedette fluvio-maritime habitable est impressionnante tout comme son propriétaire qui nous fait la preuve qu’on n’a pas besoin d’acheter une péniche pour sillonner les eaux intérieures et rien ne nous empêche de continuer vers l’horizon une fois arrivé à l’estuaire !

It is not every day that you get to visit a vessel of this kind on the French inland waterways. But what a pleasure when you do. And if it was as pleasure to discover the vessel it was a revelation to meet her owners, a couple who are proving that you don’t have to buy a barge to enjoy the French canals and that once you’ve cruised through the vineyards, there’s nothing to stop you visiting the Mediteranean or the Black Sea.

These boat details are subject to contract.
