Broker's Comments

Dutch steel cruiser for sale in Burgundy. Boatshed Bourgogne is pleased to offer this Smelne 1200 motor cruiser for sale. Although our vendors had just arrived to dewinterise the boat and clean off a winters worth of accumulated "yerk" this beautifully kept Smelne was already looking better than many vessels we have visited. Three cabins, two heads with showers and all in less than 12m of boat! It is an impressive cocktail. The shining parquet floor and equally shining Ford main engine are reassuring signs that this boat has received constant love and attention from our vendors during their sixteen years of ownership. Attention to detail abounds & even the shore power lines have received half fender "bell housings" to keep them dry during bad weather! A comfortable & convivial motor cruiser for Europe's inland waterways and coastal exploration.
