Broker's Comments

Boatshed Bourgogne is pleased to offer this Beutschip Luxemotor Dutch barge for sale. After a lifetime in the profession and a retirement spent on a « busmans holiday » you ‘d think our client was selling this convivial live aboard barge to go to pastures new. Well not a bit of it. An incurable ambassador of pleasure cruising he has another smaller, more manageable boat already waiting in the wings.
It was a pleasure to meet with such an enthusiastic boater on-board a boat he evidently feels very much a part of. Not surprising really, as he has thoughtfully managed all the works carried out including the original conversion when he bought it thirty years ago and all subsequent upgrades. He knows every « rivet and cranny » of this comfortable and versatile boat and has no reservations about crossing the Channel (6 passages to date) or taking her up to Lechlade at the head of the River Thames. The fit out has the charm of the period and has been kept in first-rate condition. To be sold with the furniture and equipment down to the last teaspoon she is ready to move onto and will make a comfortable cruising home for Europe or UK waters. For further information and appointments to view, please contact Graham WHARMBY your broker at Boatshed Bourgogne.
