Broker's Comments

These boat details are subject to contract.
This Dutch Replica Wide Beam steel barge has very nice proportions. There is currently a mooring available to rent, in Twickenham on a unique beauty spot (subject to meeting the owner). Currently she is on the River Medway. This wide beam barge is very well appointed inside, with lots of light and space. The open-plan saloon/galley area really works well. The fit out of the vessel looks to be of a good standard. The bathroom is a good size as you will see from the still shots. The vessel benefits from 2 double bedrooms too. The wheelhouse is large enough to take the washing machine, tumble drier and a Freezer and you can still get to the helm. This vessel is an ideal liveaboard for a couple or small family.
