Broker's Comments

This sturdy Dutch Steel Cruiser has been lovingly restored and is looking good. This example has been set up as a live aboard and has a great open plan living area with plenty of light and space. She has a double aft cabin with good storage and a heads with new porcelain throughout. The dinette also converts to a double and there is space up forward for a further two single bunks if required.

She is mobile with a fully working and well maintained engine, a hull that’s been shot blasted and refinished to a high standard and she has been completely rewired by a professional electrical engineer. Although all the basic navigation equipment is here and in working order, you may want to add to it if you’re planning for longer trips.

With twin fully working helm positions & a bow thruster, this vessel would be a good, strong, comfortable & easy to handle choice to crack the European canals.
