Wide beam barge for sale in France. Boatshed Midi Canals is pleased to offer this LIVERPOOL BOATS one off widebeam barge at an attractive price.

A comfortable cruiser for the European inland waterways, she has already crossed the channel and cruised the French coasts with her previous owners who were full-time liveaboard boaters.

The engine sits in its own throne room with glass viewing panel. Good sized outside roof space ideal for building a wooden roof terrace. For health and age reasons the previous owner was not able to maintain the vessel as he would have liked and our vendor bought her recently to cruise and improve as he went along but a change of plan has brought the boat back to the market before completion of work.

This barge, lying on the River Rhône in a sheltered port, is available at a great price to someone with the time and inclination to turn her back into a warm, comfortable cruising home.

For more information or organise a visit, please contact Magali, you local broker at Boatshed Midi Canals.

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