Vision Doeve Brokers

Former inland cargo vessel that has been converted into a sailing live aboard barge. The ship has a spacious wheelhouse with galley, with a view all around so that everyone can enjoy the view. Downwards follows the salon with stove. Further to the front there is a corridor on port side and on starboard side there is the guest cabin with en suite toilet room with sink. The shower is in a separate room. In the front is the owner's cabin with en suite toilet room with sink. Just in front of the owner's cabin there is ample storage area. There is a separate working area in the forepeak. A refurbished DAF engine was installed in 2009. The ship is very suitable for European waterways, including the French ones. With her low air draft she can sail both the Canal du Nivernais and the Canal du Midi.
