Broker's Comments

An exceptionally well presented Dutch Steel Barge having just undergone a complete restoration to a luxury cruiser with 2 in mind.
She is capable of cruising inland or offshore and would be an ideal holiday home, live aboard or long distance cruiser, perfect for exploring the coast, Holland or French Canals.
She has been fully restored over the past 4 years to a high standard with central heating provided by a "Wet radiator system" fired by a 9kw diesel heater. She also has a wood burning stove fitted in the saloon.
The full-size galley is very well equipped with a full-size refrigerator, gas oven and hob.
She also has a Kubota diesel generator offering 9kw of power located in the engine room alongside the main 120hp DAF 6 cylinder diesel engine. Cruising speed is c. 5knots with a fuel consumption c. 3 litres per hour.
