Vision Doeve Brokers

Heavily built Ammunition Transport Vessel for the Dutch Navy (Y8502) which subsequently has been used as a cable-laying vessel on the Dutch Wadden Sea. About 10 years ago she was completely refitted into a comfortable Dutch Barge for long journeys or to live on board. Equipped with a spacious wheelhouse with patio doors at the rear and 2 side doors, a spacious salon with L-shaped kitchen, guest cabin with shower and further forward a toilet room, 2nd guest cabin and the owner's cabin with shower. The car crane is located on deck and this Dutch Barge Live Aboard vessel is also equipped with 2 spud poles and a hydraulic bow- and stern thruster, making her very easy to maneuver.
