Broker's Comments

Boatshed London are delighted to offer this 23m Dutch Barge for sale. This attractive barge has been in the same ownership for 35 years and has been moored in Canary Wharf from before most of the surrounding buildings had even been conceived.

She was purchased in the Netherlands and converted into a two-masted sailing barge before being brought across to London. The barge was refitted internally in 2014 and completely overplated in 2017. The boat was also epoxied at the time.

Inside there are currently two cabins but there is potential to convert the area under the aft deck into a small third cabin. The open plan living area and galley is a really good size for entertaining and the forward cabin can also work as a studio/home office.

The bathroom has a shower cubicle, basin and electric heads.

Externally, the barge would benefit from the topsides being repainted. The sails have not been used for many years and if the intention was to take this barge cruising, they would need to be replaced.

The boat is currently moored at Blackwall Basin, E14.

These boat details are subject to contract.
Note: Offers on the asking price may be considered.
