Vision Doeve Brokers

This newly build Sagar Marine Narrowboat is an unique vessel and is offered by her first owners. She is equipped with a twin prop hydraulic propulsion system. Together with the hydraulic bow thruster she is a very maneuverable barge. From the aft deck with the Bimini you reach the wheelhouse (with a dismantlable hardwood topside and aluminum roof) with steering position and bench, step down into the bedroom, on the portside the engine with PTO and on the Starboard side storage, then the bathroom with bath, washbasin and the toilet, side doors, galley and salon with exit at the front. The owners traveled extensively in the UK before they made the move to France where they since then have been barging on the inland waterways. Moored in the North of France she is well positioned for the new owner to explore the European canal system or to live on board.
