Vision Doeve Brokers

Former inland cargo ship that, after many wanderings, has been rebuilt into a Dutch Barge / cruising Live Aboard, where having headroom has been of paramount importance. The current owners have invested a lot in upgrading this Dutch Barge since 2019, including a good electrical installation with solar panels. Unfortunately, the woodwork around the windows has been damaged by some old leakages, but the leaks have been resolved and in our opinion the woodwork is easy to paint or replace. The aft deck can be completely closed off with a tent, making it comfortable to cruise even in bad weather conditions. Start exploring the French waterways right away and discover the many other possibilities of the European waterways.
