This Dutch Coastal barge has so far been very nicely converted. In approximately 2002, she had a new superstructure which was professionally designed to complement her original lines. She is double skinned. There is a lot more scope to add more accommodation by finishing the conversion and adapting the crew quarters and the open forward hull area. The current living quarters have all been Spray foam insulated including the floors. The windows are double glazed too.

Broker's Comments

These boat details are subject to contract.
This Barge was built as an inland trader, and then in 1970 carried out sea going duties and was on the Germanischer Lloyd Register until 1994. She then went to Holland and after that arrived in the UK.
This Dutch Coastal Barge has been the subject of 3/4 conversion. There is still a huge area that can also be converted too. She appears to have a very sturdy looking hull with pleasing lines. The panoramic galley is lovely as is the living room areas. The main bedroom requires some finishing, the water tanks need connecting up and toilet too. The current owners circumstances have changed and that is the reason why this lovely vessel is on the market. She has so much potential, yet you could live aboard whilst other work is carried out.
Note: Offers on the asking price may be considered.
