Broker's Comments

Classic Trawler for sale in France. Boatshed Midi Canals is happy to offer this ex Dutch Tug Boat for sale in the Midi. After a duty life in a Dutch harbour, this Ex Tug boat was transformed into a residential boat with comfort and all the features of the classic boat construction: varnished wood interior, brass instruments, stylish wood panels and storage everywhere. Also well equipped, this cruiser regularly cruises in the Med during the summer season, and the level of comfort inside with heating, air conditioning, electricity monitoring systems and a great diesel and water capacity, make this vessel an attractive cruiser for the Med, or a perfect stylish live aboard vessel for a family.
If you dream of a trip through the French waterways and the canals of Europe to Moscow with a return via the Bosphorus and the Med. then you have just found your dream boat! Our vendor has even cruised the ENTIRE LENGTH of the CANAL du MIDI including the Lateral à la Garonne from the Atlantic to the Med. but this is most definitely a delivery trip and not for the faint hearted!
All the pictures were taken in winter with tailor made protection covers in place. New photos to follow soon!
