The "Kempenaar" is a specially designed cargo ship that has been adapted to navigate the narrow and relatively shallow canals in the southern Netherlands and northeastern Belgium. The dimensions of this type of inland vessel are precisely tailored to the limited space of the canals, especially due to the limited size of the locks. With a length of approximately 50 meters, a width of 6.60 meters and a loading capacity of 600 tons, the "Kempenaar" is perfectly suited for the Zuid-Willemsvaart and the Kempen canals, areas known as the Kempen.

A "Kempenaar" can transport 400 to 600 tons of cargo and has a maximum draft of 2.50 meters. The original Kempenaar has a length of 50 meters and a width of 6.60 meters.
