Dutch barge for sale,  Pied-a-Terre with Egham Mooring

Great value – 2018 survey and BSC to May 2022

Hi, and thanks for looking at my ad for this 49ft Dutch barge for sale on behalf of the owner.  She was built in Holland and was manufactured in their traditional style with an all steel construction of hull, decks and superstructure and would be ideally suited as a high quality liveaboard, a pied-a-terre or equally as a holiday cruiser for a barge enthusiast.  If you look around you can see that the asking price of £44,950 is very reasonable for a boat of this quality and size with a mooring in this location and the owner will also consider reasonable offers; she is advertised for sale elsewhere.

Come and have a look around her, she is a great boat with so much charm and appeal with a really usable layout, great outside space, safe decks and a bright and light interior alongside good equipment.  You will not be disappointed.

The mooring is fully transferable to the new owner and is in an ideal location in Egham / Old Windsor on the River Thames.  The town centre is only a short walk away and has a full range of banks, shops, launderette, pubs and restaurants.  It also boasts a mainline station running into London Waterloo including stops at Clapham Junction.  The boatyard is small and friendly and everyone is welcome and the boat can be viewed there.
