Former inland freighter that has been completely refurbished into a Cruising Live Aboard Dutch Barge, taking into account the air draft so that she can also be used very well in France, for example. This Klipperaak is with her layout also very efficient. For example, the aft cabin is accessible from the inside. The layout is as follows: owner's cabin, bathroom with shower, spacious lounge with open kitchen and stairs to the cockpit and a door to the hallway to the stern, with in there a toilet, spacious double bed and a cot, bathroom with sink and stairs to the aft deck. In the cockpit, with cockpit tent, is the steering position and from which you have a good view all around. There is a 360-degree rotatable bow thruster and a generator placed in the forecastle and the further technics are located in the engine room. In our eyes a “ready to sail-away” Live Aboard Dutch Barge.
