“THIS IS A BEAUTIFUL HUGE LIVE ABOARD DUTCH BARGE READY TO LIVE ON BUT DOES REQUIRE SOME UPDATING TO MAKE THIS INTO A GREAT INVESTMENT AND REALLY CHEAP HUGE HOME. THIS WILL SELL FAST SO PLEASE COME AND VIEW”
FANTASTIC HUGE LIVEABOARD HOUSE BOAT
LOCATION IN CHERTSEY AREA
1912, wide beam, 70ft Dutch barge,
12ft beam, 3½ft draft, air draft 9½ft
She has a well-maintained DAF 575 marine engine, diesel, which brought us over from Nieuport, Belgium in April 2014, with no problems. There is a large engine room (6m x 4m) which is large enough for storage, washing machine and other utilities.
The spacious interior is on 2 levels, upper level galley and dining space, with gas cooker and fridge, then 2 steps down into the spacious saloon with working traditional Dutch, diesel stove, Dutch dresser and sofa bed, and beyond this is the toilet, shower and sink, and large double bedroom.
The old wooden wheelhouse was replaced with a new steel wheelhouse in 2015, with professional, handmade window frames and double glazing.
She has sailed the French and Belgium canals, and we sailed her across to the UK in 2014 and have had good times sailing the Thames, up to Henley. In 2015 we brought her to Laleham, Surrey for the new wheelhouse, where she is currently moored. At the time the new wheelhouse was built, the electric and plumbing services were cut back in order to reinstate, as she has 2-pin sockets, and these need reinstating.
I have happily stayed on it for the last 4 years and she is liveable straight away, with functional services. Unfortunately now selling due to family circumstances, and I am unable to complete the reinstatement on my own.
Full details, boat history, and photos available, so come and see her and fall in love with her like we did.
