Built in 1920 in the Netherlans, this dutch barge, tjalk, live on board barge was last surveyed in 2010 and last out of the water in 2016 for hull paint & anodes.

The aft deck is covered by a sun awning, with removable sides to make a totally closed space, especially done for the winter.

On the foredeck is the gas locker and the cooling unit (MITSUBISHI MUZ SF 42 V). A hatch gives access to the forward peak where is the heating unit, brand KABOLA, model HR 500, 20 kW, and its fuel tank.

The wheelhouse and aft deck are all on the same level giving ease of movement aboard and really convivial day space. A sofa in the wheelhouse converts to a double bed 140 X 200 cm. Large windows for a great luminosity.

4 steps down forward is the main living area. These are the only steps in the boat making it a very practical liveaboard proposition.

The galley has been recently refitted and comprises a domestic type cooker, fridge and worktops. Heads with WC, basin and shower. Two radiators in the shower room, one electric the other connected on the central heating. The water for the toilet is from the water tank but a pump taking water from the canal is available & ready to work.

In the saloon the sofa converts to another double bed if needed. Good cupboards & storage on each side.

Forwards is the cabin with a bed of 140 X 200 cm, storage space under. On starboard is a place for the washing and dryer machine, hidden by a curtain. The same space on port is a large cupboard. Between this two spaces, a large drawer cabinet.
5 thermostatic radiators provide central heating. Main thermostat in the saloon. The central heating boiler also supplies the hot water.

All the windows are equipped with blindes, except in the cabin where there are curtains. The walls are white wood & saloon lighting is Leds giving a cosy and clean feeling.
