Broker's Comments

Live aboard tjalk for sale in Burgundy France. Boatshed Bourgogne is please to offer this Tjalk Dutch barge for sale. Tjalks are generally very sought after especially as live aboard cruising barges. This is indeed a very nice specimen that retains much of it’s original character with tiller steering (watch our video of how easy it is to manoeuvre this boat), and those lovely windows from the aft deck to saloon. It is also a very well maintained vessel and has served as an almost full time cruising home for the present owners who now wish to scale down their boating activities. With a GOOD SURVEY from 21st MAY 2015 and less than 20 meters in length ( no TRIWV) this live aboard Tjalk is a great cruising home you can enjoy on all French canals & Europe’s waterways.
For more information or appointments to view, please contact Graham WHARMBY your Boatshed broker at Boatshed Bourgogne.
