Vision Doeve Brokers

Former inland cargo vessel that has been fully prepared by the current owner for further construction into a spacious (cruising) Live Aboard Dutch Barge. The decks, the cockpit and the entire superstructure have been renewed. A Spartan interior has also been built-in. Other features include two hydraulically operated spud poles and a proportionally adjustable hydraulic bow thruster. The steelwork is neatly, solidly and thoughtfully executed. For example, the entrance to the engine room has been integrated into the steering console. In our opinion, this is a beautiful project to customize and the end result will be an amazing (cruising) Live Aboard houseboat.
