We are selling our 42ft by 10ft classic sailing Dutch barge with 6ft headroom.
Sylvette has been kept by the owner of a nice little Marina near Rotterdam for decades, so she was very carefully maintained. Sylvette started her life as a cargo ship and then the owner and his son decided to convert her to a leisure craft 45 years ago.
She is a lovely example of a classic sailing barge with spacious widebeam living space. She has a small folding 2 seater wheelhouse, so you and your partner will stay dry and warm even on the rainy days when you need to navigate the rivers/canals, or on the sunny days you can have the wheelhouse folded down.
Her 6 cylinder Daf 575 diesel engine is very powerful, it is great joy to drive this boat.
Sylvette has been beautifully furnished with good quality materials. As you walk in, you will find a shower room/toilet on one side and the kitchen on the other. There is a gas cooker in the kitchen.
The living room contains hanging wardrobes and cupboards on both side, so you will have plenty of space storing your stuff. The main features of the living room is the lovely glass window and the hardwood skylight, making the room very special.
The gas heating heats up the whole boat very quickly.
You can find two cabins in the bow: both of them can function with double beds.
The ship is equipped with solar panels, 24V lighting, 240V sockets, shore power connection and an anchor winch.
The bridge clearance of Sylvette is low enough, so she can go on the canals without any problem.
If you are looking for a homely, cute barge with lots of character, do no look any further.
Sylvette will not disappoint you.
If you would like to see her, please ring George on 07897 824035.
First time boaters are welcome, we are experienced in liveaboard and cruiser lifestyle and will help you to have a very joyful time on the water.
