The aft cockpit is spacious, well appointed and convivial with comfortable seating and helm. Full cockpit canvass covers (see photos) mean that this outdoor area can be used almost all year round. Forward from the aft cockpit we access the saloon via the companionway forward. The saloon is bright and airy with deep windows and 1.95m headroom, yet cozy with light wood decoration and quality furnishings. The table opens out to easily seat 6 in comfort. Moving forward is the bright well equipped galley with induction hobs fridge (220V & 24v) & plenty of worktop space and storage. Do take a good look at the video and notice not only the luminosity but the opening doors port & starboard at galley level the door to the aft deck and opening windows throughout allow for excellent ventilation. A really practical & convivial layout that both the chef and crew will enjoy. Forward again down to the forward cabin with its V berths, opening portholes and ensuite heads & shower. Headroom here is 1.95m
Down stairs aft of the saloon and accessed by a corridor on the starboard side is the main owners suite with walk-round bed of 2m x 1.5m. plenty of storage and an ensuite shower room. Headroom in the shower is a massive 2.02m and is slightly reduced in the cabin at 1.78m max.
Just in front of the main cabin is a heads with WC & basin. Next is the access to the engine room with double doors for excellent sound insulation. The whole boat is heated by radiators fired by a sizeable diesel Webasto boiler. Hot water is supplied from an immersion heater also connected to the main engine by a calorifier. There is plumbing for a washing machine but no machine fitted at present.

Dutch steel motor cruiser for sale in France. Boatshed Midi Canals is pleased to offer this very nicely presented, Classic Motor Yacht for sale. Designed by Henk Lunstroo and built by Henry Engelaers yard (renowned for quality bespoke yachts) her pedigree is still evident today. She oozes charm of a bygone era yet is bright, practical and comfortable. She is easy to operate with dedicated deck spaces fore & aft and wide side decks too. In 2013 our vendor embarked upon an extensive refurbishment programme. The electrical systems were totally updated, the steel wheelhouse was removed thereby reducing the air draft to just 2.70 m. allowing access to the canal du Midi. Many interior upgrades were also carried out at this time.
The boat has since cruised from Honfleur to Bordeaux via the Seine, Canal du Centre, Saone, Rhône, Canal du Midi and Canal lateral a la Garonne. Our vendor tells us she is equally at home at coastal cruising.
LED lighting installed almost everywhere.
The deck height allows easy boarding and disembarking and the crane on the rear deck makes handling the tender & bicycles a breeze.
A classic motor cruiser ideally suited to extended holidays or full time live aboard she is stylish and practical choice for cruising French waterways, Europes canals & rivers, the Med & beyond.
