Vision Doeve Brokers

Former inland cargo vessel that has been rebuild into a sailing Live aboard barge. The layout of this Frisian Tjalk is from front to back as follows: owners cabin, guest cabin, bathroom with shower and electric toilet, galley with ceramic hob, living room, spacious covered cockpit with round seat. The bimini and wind screen can be removed easily, if desired. The steering is hydraulic and the engine has been overhauled in 2013. Her low air draft and shallow draft makes the Tjalk very suitable for the European canals and rivers. A hull thickness report is available.
