Vision Doeve Brokers

Full professionally renovated former sailing inland cargo ship. With the renovation no costs were spared to bring her back into a glorious condition. Everything has been renewed, except the hull, with great attention for details. The interior is fresh and neat. A part of the salon can be opened through the aluminum hatch so the interior is very light. The engine was newly installed in 2017 and is placed in an insulated engine box. The varnish of the spars, leeboards and rudder is very good. This barge is ideal to go to historical events such as Sail Amsterdam but also sailing competitions are great to do because she is a fast sailer. Highly recommended.
