Vision Doeve Brokers

An unique opportunity to own a real steam tug. This boat has been renovated almost completely with, among other things, a new boiler (2005). In 2018 Lloyds surveyed the steam boiler and the appendages. A real engine room including a generator, bilge pump and deck wash pump on steam. Equipped with in the front a neat salon and at the back a cabin with 2 berths makes her perfect to participate in historical events. Equipped with a TRIWV certificate makes it possible to continue sailing with her after the end of 2018. A real boat for the enthusiasts that will be delivered ready to sail. This boat has served her entire professional period as a port tugboat HUGO HEDRICH in the port of Hamburg owned by J.H. Steffen. Returned to the Netherlands by S.C. Heisse in NL- Zaandam in 1977.
