The Boatshed conference 2011 was a great success. Two days spent in and around Portsmouth Dockyard as well as Boatshed HQ in Gosport; with lots of lectures, group meetings and workshops.
Approximately 30 Boatsheds came to the event, travelling from destinations across Europe and even as far as Phuket in the Far East.
Three words sprang to mind when I first saw this boat: huge, cool and wow! This is a truly delightful Dutch barge in a great location. She has it all - accommodation for eight, beautiful and well planned living space and bags of room for those who enjoy a bit of outdoor living. The living space is arranged on two levels and could be easily re-configured to the new owner's specification.

One of the real plusses of an organisation like Boatshed is the breadth and depth of our Brokers’ knowledge and experience. We’ve crossed more starting and finishing lines on more boats than you can begin to imagine and on our listings you will find everything from racing dinghies and catamarans to Americas Cup yachts and single handed round the world Open 60s. We have raced round the cans, round the Fastnet rock and round the world. We love every aspect of boating, but some of us are properly infected with the racing bug!
