Vision Doeve Brokers

This Dutch Barge Live Aboard Barge, from the first owner, embodies the classic elegance and modern comfort that Piper Barges are known for. The heart of this Luxe Motor replica consists of a 95 hp Sole engine. There is also a generator on board and recently installed solar panels with a powerful inverter/charger. This makes this Dutch Barge completely self-supporting, leaving you free to sail wherever your adventure takes you. The spacious wheelhouse of this Piper offers a panoramic view; together with 2 side doors and the terrace doors that open onto the aft deck, is it a very pleasant space to be. Below deck you will find the galley, a cozy salon and the bathroom. In addition, there is a cabin that currently is in use as an office, complete with a sofa that can easily be converted into a bed. The owner's cabin has a comfortable French bed.
