Spits Freycinet certified for the Rhine, with a steel hold bottom, new upperpart hold, aluminum sliding hatch covers, aluminum folding wheelhouse and, to top it all off, an in 2015 completely renovated interior with insulation and electricity and double-glazed windows including new front (has cost approx. € 100,000). This is a very well-maintained and well-repaired barge that can be used as such (suitable for solo sailing) or to be used as a very good basis for a (sailing) houseboat. It is a beautifully built vessel with many beautiful details such as the way in which the aft cabin is built. Also the wide sidewalks are ideal. A lot has been replaced, always opting for maintenance-friendly and that translates into the ease of use. In our eyes a great opportunity to be able to start with such a Spits Freycinet.
