Barge for sale.
This vessel was built in 1901 using mild steel. It was constructed as a flat bottomed Dutch Steel barge with the hull part riveted and part welded.
Aesthetically she is a really nice looking boat, which was refurbished in 2006. The boat is great for living in as a family but not too big to cruise as a couple.
Only 50 hours on the Ford New Holland engine that was newly installed 6 years ago.

Broker's Comments

These boat details are subject to contract.
This barge has a really homely feel. Her current owner has spent lots of money on her in the right areas. Over the last 6 years she has been refitted, insulated, new engine installed, generator installed and a whole host of other things done to her. The main saloon is nicely decorated and has freestanding furniture so you can easlily change it if you prefer. The galley is a little dated but functional.
A barge of this size is far easier to handle for a couple and you will be able to explore more places too. There is enough space for a small family and plenty of storage too.
Note: Offers on the asking price may be considered.
