Out of the Vandeville yard in 1961 and built to the canal du Midi size, this is not a Freycinet cutdown but a real Midi peniche. Riveted steel hull and in commercial use until 1985 when the present owner bought her and converted her to a live aboard and professional studio.

Broker's Comments

Live aboard barge for sale by Boatshed Midi Canals. We are pleased to offer this original Canal du Midi Barge for sale. An original peniche du Midi transformed into a floating home and professional workshop by the present owner who now wishes to retire to land. Original boatman's cabin aft and deckhand accommodation in the forepeak and a very original concept for the conversion of the hold with a large saloon cum kitchen diner and patio doors to an indoor terrace opening onto the workshop. Glazed raised deck sides and polycarbonate hold covers make this a very bright conversion. The pool with observation windows is forward of the workshop. This could make a very comfortable and unique live aboard barge you can finish off to your own tastes.
To view or for more information, please contact Graham at Boatshed Midi Canals.
